Ability to host more file types

Limited file hosting is the primary reason I can't make the switch from SiteGround (hosting + WordPress) to Webflow (hosting + designer) for hosting my personal site. If there's somewhere in Webflow where I can upload audio files like .mp3, .wav, or .m4a files, I can't find it. I need my hosting solution to include the ability to store all sorts of files as I don't have my own server to pull them from.

    Unbelievable this hasn't been implemented yet...

    Yes. ⬆️
    For $XX/month I expect a web host to be able to host media files.

    You can put your Website now with https://stacket.app/ to GitHub and host there all type of files you want.

    I was just bought a 12 month account plan and spent 4 days rebuilding a prototype of a client site to migrate over from WordPress, only to discover it does not support MP3s files, one of the most basic of files that has been on the web since the 90's.

    His entire website is just to host some mp3 sermens and talks, about 30-50 minutes each. And it wouldn't be worth buying a small hosting package on top of this, when a 5gb server is plenty for the current files he has, for just $4 a month.

    The lack of MP3 support is an absolute deal breaker.

    We really need the ability to upload mp3 files... already two of my customers want to play sounds on their websites but there is not even the possibility to upload a mp3 file with cms... so we use a really unsatisfactory workaround with soundcloud links.

    It cant be that hard to make it able to upload a mp3 file and maybe even add an audio player which is nothing else than a button which plays a sound. I mean... its 2020 xD

    Here's a example of a website i want to be able to create with webflow:

    Definitely following this thread. I have a need to upload sound files directly (guided meditations). Currently, we are working around this by uploading the sound files to our premium vimeo account with an image as the visual, then directing users to vimeo to play the file. It's fine for now, but obviously could be better. Hope to be able to upload .m4a directly to webflow sometime soon!

    Support for music files is definitely the most important format for me. Even if you have to build your own audio player, it would be so much easier to be able to upload mp3 and acc files directly to webflow. Firstly, it's a much easier workflow and secondly, having all your files in one place is way more manageable and less error-prone.

    Integration would be great i don't think they are commited to supporting audio and  would mean you need a second account on another site and have to link to it defeating the purpose of trying to host it yourself .. ie a talent management site where the client can upload audio samples would need a hossting provider to host the files like amazon s3 and the link would have to be stored in your cms. You would also have to update the link if you updated the file making the overhead for the clients a bit too much we need a solution and i agree with @Razel Agustino

    💯 Would be great to be able to upload .vcf files too!

    Yes, that's important if client's webspace is webflow too for a project. Often there are some «document archives» needed to be published …

    You can definitely build on Webflow and still host with Siteground. I know because I have Siteground currently. This being the case you can easily upload your mp3 files to your server via FTP (Filezilla) or even directly in your cPanel. Siteground has great support and if you don't know how to do this you can hit them up in a chat on the support page. 

    Anyhow, once your files are upload you just copy the file path on your server which should look something like this: 


    (mp3s - would be the new folder you made in your web root folder 'public-html' and then followed by "/mp3filename.mp3" like I wrote above.)

    Once you've done that which should take you not even a min, you would go back to webflow and insert an "Embed Code" element towards the bottom of the list. 

    Simply enter this code in there:

    <audio controls>
    <source src="http://yourdomain.com/mp3s/yourmp3name.mp3" type="audio/mpeg">
    Your browser does not support the audio element.

    In between "" where it says src="" is where you will paste your link and voila. You now have your html 5 player EXACTLY the same way Wordpress does. 


    Hope this helps!
