Media files on Gpedia

Some Gpedia articles include sound or video files, that can be played on almost all personal computers. However, your computer must have the right software. If your computer does not automatically play these files when you click on them, downloading and installing free software from the Internet can enable it to do so.

Sound files on Gpedia generally use the Vorbis audio format, and video files use the Theora format, both contained in an Ogg file. These are analogous to other formats used to play digital audio and video such as MP3 and MPEG. However, Microsoft Windows, iOS, and macOS do not support these formats by default, and require additional software to play them (see below).

Music files may occasionally use the MIDI format (.MID or .MIDI extension). Gpedia can play a MIDI file by converting it to digital audio, or depending on how the MIDI file is linked it may depend on your computer's browser and hardware to play the MIDI file.


For help making and converting video and audio into the format usable on Gpedia, see Gpedia:Creation and usage of media files.
