I’m making a “downloads” section in my website. There will be three types of download:
- a zipped music album
- a zipped set of videos
- a zipped image gallery
Now I like the idea of packing little extras into these zips. If it’s a music album, then along with the mp3s it’ll contain the following peripherals:
- an m3u playlist
- a “Folder” jpeg
- an “AlbumArtSmall” jpeg
- a .lnk to my website
- a little “info” txt file about the album
I’m pretty green about this stuff so is there anything else that could/should be included?
And I’m not sure about the jpegs. Should the AlbumArtSmall file be 75x75 pixels?
But my main question is this… what little extras could I include in a zipped image gallery and in a zipped video set?
Obviously the info and lnk files can be included, but what else?
Regarding playlists for the video zips, I can’t find evidence (Google) that people use playlists for video files! This surprises me. I’ve heard that some media players accept XML playlists but have been unable to find examples of how such a file should be written or what extension(s) it should have.
So the question boils down to: when you’re giving people a set of videos or images, what extra files could you include?
Any ideas would be welcome.
