    describing audio (hear it)


    i bet it would be hard to implement because the mp3 preview isnt generated till after the describing process at the moment. But it would be handy if you could listen to your files on the describe page.

    yes, right.

    Like if i upload a lot of files, then i need to go around my computer or use the search of the OS for each sound. This happens more if you are very disorganized... coug coug.... this is hipotetical of course, i don't mean i am disorganized at aall.... ( º_º)

    I figured out a way to avoid a lot of similar problems like those by doing these things:

    I created an upload folder and keep it open while uploading. I copy whatever files I want to upload into it and then do them all at once. If I need to refer to specific sounds for a reference of the description I click on that window and play it. I then delete all the files in the upload folder which are duplicates. This also saves me the time of searching through directories looking for files.

    I upload lots of files at a time, but trying to describe more than 5 or 6 at a time seems to lag horribly. It's usually during spellcheck and happens regardless of file size.

    I keep windows notepad open, write my tags and basic description in it and cut and past. Then I just add any individual notes to sounds depending on how they differ from the others in the sample pack.

    Not sure what OS or setup you have but this works for me.

    the thing is, i have a lot of uploaded stuff weeks if not months ago and still not described it, i just do a couple when i feel like it. But i upload from my workstation, but i can describe from any place in the world basically. So having a listen to them when i do would be handy.
