While photos are the most common type of media seen in pop-ups on ArcGIS Online web maps and applications, similar options do exist for audio and video content. The PDF document attached below outlines a few tips and tricks when embedding audio or video media, as well as some of the pros and cons related to each type. The types covered include the following:

  • Bandcamp


  • SoundCloud


  • YouTube


  • Vimeo


I have also created a web mapping application to accompany the document as sort of a demonstration of results, along with the original web map version:

Web Map:

It is essentially an expanded version I have written based on the tips outlined in this previous post concerning YouTube videos: http://forums.arcgis.com/threads/71886-adding-video-to-online-ArcGIS?highlight=YouTube
