Hi, I'm new here.

A question - how do you upload music?

I noticed it's always in a SWF because the board doesn't accept music files... how do you make those?

Is there a tool for it? Thanks for reply!
randomite93 Featured By Owner Edited Sep 8, 2015
Hi MightyPork! You can sort of 'cheat the system' by using an MP3 to SWF converter. If you have wav files, you can try searching for a WAV to SWF converter on google, or use a WAV to MP3 converter (like Freemakeand couple that with your MP3 to SWF converter. 

I can recommend Hootech SWF to MP3 to have your files come out like this or  Hootech Total Audio to have your files come out without a player, like this

They're both really easy to use. The only problem is that the free versions convert 60% of the track, so you're going to have to do some math and add the appropriate amount of silence each time you decide to convert it. =P

There's also the option of uploading an image (maybe a preview image for the song) and putting a link to your song in the description. You then submit the song to our group like you submit it to any other group. That, or you could just submit a journal with the link to your song!  

Just don't forget to add that song to your image or journal. We can't accept plain images if there's no music in it!

Hope this helps ;D

Indeed, DeviantArt has quit supporting audio files many years ago because of constant copyright infringements, and the threat of law suits from the music industry. So now the only way if through Flash. There used to be a link to a tool here in the group messages, but I don't know what's the status on that. I remember there was some incompatibility, but I didn't follow what happened because I make my own Flash contents using FlashDevelop + Flex Framework, which are both 100% free but meant for more advanced ActionScript programmers.

If I remember this right, DA ceased to support music deviations because of legal and liability reasons. A lot of people were posting music that didn't belong to them, causing DA some rather serious law suit problems. So it's not that DA doesn't want to allow music, but instead that people were abusing copyrighted materials and things got out of hand.

Hm, there must be ways around that, right?
I mean - ways to set up the whole thing without the website can get sued for it. There is a suggestion that could work in the journal too.

The way is to post our original music as Flash animations. And yet, there is still a LOT of people posting stolen music all the time. They come with excuses such as "it's Ok if I don't sell it", which is still infringing copyrights anyway. That's the reason why DA quit supporting music uploads, and we are lucky we can still post them as Flash.
