The audio element just like any other multimedia elements is a very important building block of any website. The incorporation of audio files on the website creates an attraction to the website because it adds up to the aesthetic side of it. This is the reason that prompted many web content management systems to consider the effective method towards embedding audio files, just like video files, on the site.
The Drupal software has emerged successfully in fully integrating this demand onto their system. The audio module was included on the system engine and was designed to be responsible in permitting or rejecting authorization to users who may want to upload or include an audio file onto the drupal-made site. The process works by ensuring that each audio file that is created is equivalent to a unique audio file on the node. This is being made successfully with the use of the library file known as the getID3 library which function is to read the ID3 meta tag and read write on it properly to and from where the location of the audio file is. The getID3 module is also capable of generating records of the recently submitted audio files and the recently uploaded audio files created by the user.
The audio module for a better and efficient performance is integrated with another application that is innately embedded onto the site. This application is the Flash Player XSPF file. This Web-based music player is uses the XSPF format of the playlist in order to play and execute MP3 and MP4 file types as well as the other WAV files.
