Can you give some recommendations for free place in cloud to put Mp3s and videos (WEBM MP4) in cloud for easy viewing by others. NOT Youtube, FB is not MP3 and poor quality ...
totally-blind musician who will do only audio, would I be better off to put a few songs on SoundCloud rather than YouTube? I'm sure that YouTube is more "popular" in terms of people using it than SoundCloud; but I had previously thought that you had to do videos or at least pictures to put files on YouTube. Of course, I may have been misinformed on that matter; perhaps one can place recordings of only audio on YouTube. I don't think I'd use FaceBook, because I get the feeling that FaceBook leans very heavily on pictures. I have received several messages from the FaceBook personnel or automated system asking me to upload a picture of myself to FaceBook, but I have not done so because I would have a problem taking a good picture to put there. Any ideas here would be appreciated; I would prefer using a free system, but I would consider paying a nomina fee for a membership or the like.What’s wrong with YouTube? Most people use it and are familiar with it. Create a video with a static image or repeating slideshow if you only have audio.
Lots of folks use SoundCloud, and to a lesser degree, SoundClick, for posting just audio.
All sites will do additional compression of your content because bandwidth costs money and “free” means the business is managing costs as well as not trying to push higher quality than the connection supports (in the case of video). Plus the vast majority is listeners are watching/listening on phones or 25-cent earbuds.
