Can I add music to my banners?

Right now, unfortunately, you cannot upload audio files directly to your banners, but don't worry, we have some alternatives for you, so if you're looking to create a slideshow or banner with music you can import the audio from third-party platforms like SoundCloud or Youtube

Importing music from Youtube

To have a Youtube video as your audio source, you just need to use the Add video option from the editor and add the Youtube URL in the Settings toolbar



You can change features like autoplay, loop or default volume options so the widget is highly customizable.

Importing music from SoundCloud

Another great method is using a SoundCloud track. To do that, first, you'll need to copy the track's embed code from the SoundCloud website and if you want it to play automatically now is the time to enable that option:



Once you've copied the embed from SoundCloud, just use the Add Embed option from the editor and paste the copied embed code in the Settings tab.



You can also import music from other platforms so you're not limited to just SoundCloud or Youtube. However, keep in mind that most Ad platforms like Google ads, don't allow audio sources embedded in ads so you won't be able to use audio banners on these.

Also, Google Chrome browser is now muting the audio signal by default and might even block the actual banner, so the best way of using music banners is with a photo slideshows or embedded banners on your own personal website. 

*Note: Banners containing Embeds or Youtube videos will require a script enabled format to run the command that will fetch the audio file from where it is sourced and play it. Therefore this will require either an HTML5 download or sourcing the banner on your website through the embed code that we provide.
