You can upload a file to the SourceAudio API by sending in an external URL. This is a per-track action, and needs to be called in series. Simultaneous uploads will be denied.
This endpoint can also be used to attach a new file to an existing upload or track to either add or replace a specific format.
|url||yes||The url to your externally hosted
|upload_id||no||The upload id to attach to if attaching to an uploaded but unpublished track|
|track_id||no||The track id to attach to if attaching to an already published track on the site|
|immediate||no||(1 or 0) Flag indicating whether to skip the publishing pipeline if it’s an update|
|format||no||The format of the uploaded file if you’re doing an
|autopublish||no||(1 or 0) Flag triggering autopublishing. Publishing automatically occurs if 10 minutes have passed without a new autopublish flag or 1000 tracks are in queue.|
|meta||no||Array of metadata; see Setting Metadata|
|oncomplete||no||An email or URL that will be called when this upload’s job is published. One per job, overwrites if already exists|
SourceAudio supports 3 formats:
wav. If you upload one version, we can generate the others, or you can upload your own versions if you wish. Simply send in another upload action with the same filename other than the extension (e.g.
wake-the-giant.wav), or provide the
upload_id of the first track when you upload the second and it’ll be attached as a secondary version. By default, we’ll generate an MP3 if you don’t upload one, but you can turn that off or generate the other formats with a formats call if you wish. The
formats parameter can be added to an
setMetadata action, and should be comma separated.
If you upload a file whose filename matches an already existing track, then it turns into an update to that track, and when you publish it will replace the filetype on that track if it exists or add it if it doesn’t.
You can also do this manually by passing in an
upload_id that corresponds to the upload you want to attach the update to.
It’s also possible to update published tracks by using
track_id with your upload. If you pass in
format=mp3 (insert your file type), then the published track’s format will automatically be replaced and it will not go into the queue. Neither the queued nor the immediate method will trigger generation of the other formats if you have that set up, so if you want to replace all the files, you either need to upload all types you supply, or delete and reupload.
