I’m presently doing the conceptualization for a website that features audio files. It comes close to being a podcast but I’m still not sure that’s the best way to distribute these files. If it sounds as if I’m being a bit oblique, I am. I haven’t yet purchased the domain(s) for this website and I don’t want to take the chance of having someone get the jump on me. (No offense.)
Whether it’s a podcast or not, does RW have (with or without plug-ins) the capability to manage what could be multiple hundreds of audio files? It needs to be able to feature several files on the home page, and display in an orderly and accessible manner a thumbnail and brief text about each audio file. This looks like a 3-column grid in my head but I’m open to other designs, too.
Also, whether or not the audio files are produced by myself, I want to be able to wrap each audio file with an intro/outro that will, essentially, brand the audio file. Eventually, I’d like to be able to insert ads on the fly instead of permanently inserting them into the original audio files. (This is starting to sound more and more like a podcast, isn’t it?)
Would I need to warehouse the audio files and point to them or simply store them locally?
I’m thinking that the primary use for this website will be mobile, so it has to scale down seamlessly.
Can I do all this with Rapidweaver?
