New Music and Photo Browsers
I just finished publishing a photo browser and a music browser to accumulate the various
things I've posted, and will continue to post. Both browsers are accessible from the links in the menu on the left.
The photo browser let you page through titled and collected thumbnails, click to view photo details and description, or download a full size
version of any photo.
The music browser lets you preview all the songs, click to see details and lyrics, or download any song in one of several audio formats.
You must have a Quicktime plugin installed in your browser to preview songs, but the downloads should work for anyone.
If you encounter any problems with the browsers, let me know using the contact information at left.
Playing Media Files
If you're having trouble viewing or playing media files on this site, here are some tips and technical information.
All music on this site is offered in one preview format and three download formats:
|Preview||64kb AAC (MP4)||Supported by most major media players on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.|
|Downloadable AAC||160kb AAC (MP4)||Supported by most major media players on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. Suitable for iTunes and most modern mobile devices. This is the best option unless you prefer MP3s for compatibility.|
|Downloadable MP3||256kb MP3||Supported by all major media players on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. Suitable for iTunes and all mobile devices. This is the most widely compatible format.|
|Downloadable FLAC||Lossless||Partial media player support. This is a lossless codec that provides the best quality at the expense of large file sizes, but may not play on some media players and is not suitable for mobile devices.|
All video on this site is offered in Quicktime format. The video codec is H.264 with AAC audio, which offers the
best compression quality for the file size. It's also ready for direct transfer to an iPhone or iPod touch.
The following software should be supported for playing these videos
in your browser:
|Windows||Quicktime, Windows Media Player 9 or higher.|
|Mac OS X||Quicktime.|
|Linux||MPlayer, VLC, Amarok.|
All videos can be downloaded and played offline as well.
Because of both time and bandwidth considerations, I am not planning to offer video in other formats. However, multiple
sizes may be available, depending on the video; e.g., web, SD and HD.
