Onebox support for all datatypes on archive.org


(sujato) #1

Archive.org supports folders that contain multiple audio files (probably other kinds of files, I guess). When I paste the URL in Discourse, it gives me an audio player for just the first file. There doesn’t seem to be any simple way on archive.org to get individual URLs for the various files. So it’d be lovely if Discourse would add via onebox the whole set of audio players. Any ideas?

I think that archive.org needs its own onebox engine to handle all the types of content.

Would need an embedding behavior for all of the data types:

article audio collection data education etree image movies software texts web                       

I think we need help from someone more familiar with their stuff - e.g. what is an etree?
