From .avi to .xls – let‘s talk about file formats

Images, videos, texts – our content pools support a large number of different media types. But which ones exactly? After all, there are countless file formats, far more than the familiar .jpg, .pdf or .mp4.

So which ones are we talking about? The list is long (which is why we’ve placed it at the end of this post). What’s important for you to know is that they all fit into the content pool and can therefore be made accessible to third parties. It makes no difference which standard browser you use or whether you access the desktop or mobile version.

Depending on your personal taste, you can also use the data types as a filter. So everyone can quickly find what they need. Perhaps it’s a vital press release or the new image video? Alternatively, you can also add an optical symbol to your content pool, showing yourself and your users what kind of file is being used. It could be a loudspeaker for audio files or a camera for videos – the possibilities are endless.

By the way, the content pool doesn’t have a problem with ZIP files They enable the combination of multiple file format types. For example, you can allow your content pool users access to multiple images, videos and documents with just one download.
