Photo, video, audio or mixed categories
Create Image, Video, Audio or Mixed (Images + Videos + Audios) categories to present information exactly as you need for your needs. Use popular images formats like JPG, PNG, GIF for pictures. Video can be uploaded as MP4 files or added as remote movies from YouTube or Vimeo. For audios you can use MP3, WAV, OGG file types.
