Broaden the scope of the music module terminology

    Hello all,

    The music module terminology is too limited in media scope. Please consider changing it to audio terminology instead. Music/song terminology is just too narrow a scope given the range of audio media possibilities that the existing SE audio tools would be already compatible with.


    People will want to use them for uploading not only music, but for news reports, interviews, stories, educational narratives, political messages too. It would be very off-putting for a user who has a news or education report to have his work limited in representation by the site in terms of music/or song to the visitors of their work.


    The number of words "songs" or "music" are too many and so ubiquitous that it is prohibitive to go and change them all to audio at the user level. And if they are changed by users, there is the prospect that it will be overwritten to back to music scope on a major update.

    Suggest that the words "music" be changed to "audio", and song to "audio file" or similar universally to support the much wider universe of audio media.

    This will make existing SE sound tools more versatile and appealing to a wider scope of audio users, and minimize effort for webmasters who want to make their site represent all audio media uses.

    There is also the general music banner when you open the music module that says... "Dance, relax with music". That too might need to get tweaked to reflect any terminology change.

    Thank you for your time.

    Great idea @Gatsby - flexibility is key to allow us ADMINs to configure how we want. 

     

    I'm including the below link not because it meets this request, but it's a great Audio Player and SocialEngineSolutions (SES) might consider adding this enhancement to their player regardless of what SE does.

    Thank you for the feature request. We can consider it in a future update. 

    The banner is easily changed via the banner manager. You can edit or remove it. Here's the tutorial, https://support.socialengine.com/php/customer/en/portal/articles/2770246-banner-manager?b_id=14386 . Hope that helps!

    Using the phrase manager, for now, would work as it won't be overwritten for phrases that go in the custom.csv

    we have already done the work to change the words in Music plugin to Audio, Radio or anything else as per your need and we are into the testing phase. The testing will take some time because for already existing clients, we have to be carefully while upgrade.

    If you have any other suggestion or if you want to try out the beta release, please contact our support team: support@socialenginesolutions.com

    Regards

    Team SES
