upload mp3 and mp4 and add mp3 and mp4 link

Recommended Posts

I would like to be able to: 

1. upload an mp4 or mp3  to my squarespace site.  Which I have done in the asset library (firsttest.mp4)

2. add a link to my page that will play the mp4 or mp3 when clicked on. (not download it. )

so sometihng like https://jaguar-gopher-tesp.squarespace.com/firsttest.mp4

3. use this link to generate a QRCODE for marekting materials. 


the TXT and Button blocks let you download... I need to have it play

The audio block and video blocks plays the file but no link is available


any thoughts?

It sounds like you're wanting the click to do two different things, which is not something that any feature in Squarespace is designed to do. How are you wanting to generate a QR code?

The action taken when a user clicks a linked file (to download or play) is determined by the browser/device. It isn't possible to specify it.

There are two ways to do this, but both will require you to customise it for each file:
