[Features] Use Zappiti Soundtrack Edito






Zappiti Soundtrack is a new community feature that combines a soundtrack with a movie, series or saga. By default, a number of soundtracks are already associated with movies, series or sagas. But if no soundtrack was present on a media, or if the soundtrack did not suit you, you can add your own soundtrack. To do this, follow the procedure below:

1. Install Zappiti Video on a PC or Mac. Please find the download link below:
http://zappiti.com/download.html

2. Once Zappiti Video is installed on your computer, launch Zappiti Video application. Then, on the login page, set the server to Zappiti Cloud (except if you are using Zappiti Server Synology or Asustor). Then, choose the same collection that was selected on your Zappiti Player.

3. In your collection, locate the media (movie, series or saga). Left-click on the cover-art to display the Pop-up Menu. Then, right-click on the button Associate a soundtrack.



4. Click on Open a music button.



5. Browse the folders and locate the audio file to import and click on it. Then click Open.


Note: The list of supported formats is shown in the drop-down list at the bottom right of the window. 

6. Please wait during the importation process. Then, your audio track will appear in the Zappiti Soundtrack Editor.



For legal issues, the extract must not be longer than 30 sec. The minimum duration is 10 seconds. The area of ​​the clip is symbolized by a dark gray band.

To edit the audio clip, click and drag the start and end arrows. We strongly advise you to use the Fade In / Fade Out options, but it may be useful not to use fades in some cases. For example, if could be very usefull if you want to make a perfect loop (advanced users).

To start the audio playback of your clip, please click the Play button. You can move the playback position (represented by a bar cursor) by clicking anyway on the clip using your mouse. This makes it easy to edit the end of the clip.



7. Once the clip has been edited, click Save and Export to Zappiti Cloud.
Note: Before exporting, you can put a comment in the comment field for the Zappiti Soundtrack moderation team. For instance, you can indicate that the default track is wrong (soundtrack of another movie/saga/TV Show).

As Zappiti Soundtrack is a community system, the more users will add soundtracks, the more the Zappiti Soundtrack soundtrack will grow up.

TIP:
To record a soundtrack from YouTube or any other source, you can use the Aiseesoft Screen Recorder shareware that offers an audio recording option. The free version of the application limits the recording to 3 min, but it is good enough for Zappiti Soundtrack where the extracts are limited in any case to 30 seconds for copyright issues.
