Hi @walesents! Glad you’re enjoying Crowdpurr.

As far as audio files, do you mean you’d like to be able to upload audio files and play them for questions? If you had the ability to upload your own audio files, do you have audio files to upload?

Adding something like that would be possible, but we find these days, most customers don’t have their own audio files (e.g. MP3’s) since everything is streaming now.

For most of our customers, bringing your own phone, computer, etc. that has audio capability (e.g. Apple Music, Spotify, etc.) and connecting that to the larger crowd PA is a good solution. Then this gives you full control. Creating a playlist works well. Then you build out the trivia or bingo game to match in Crowdpurr.

YouTube within the app can also be a good solution.

Thank you for reply i do purchase my audio files this is why i was asking, i have set up a you tube channel and now looking at making my own video files then upload, if i doing it live no problem will play direct
many thanks

Hi @RossN!

Actually my setup is exactly as you suggest, with my laptop hooked up to a PA for audio and also playing Crowdpurr for questions, broadcast to TV’s throughout the venue. It certainly is possible to manually find and play audio files while managing the Croudpurr interface, but it requires a fair bit of mouse gymnastics to pull off well. Of course if you screw anything up, it’s broadcast everywhere throughout the venue. Also, while occasionally I like to show music videos along with the music, that’s not generally true. I much prefer music trivia to be based on listening only, without the additional cues from a music video to tip participants off.

Thanks!
Mark
