Adding & Previewing Video and Audio Files

The CM Downloads Manager plugin for WordPress contains a preview window that supports all your audio and video files. Supported file formats include .mp3, .mp4 (AAC/H.264), .ogg (Vorbis/Theora), .webm (Vorbis/VP8), and .wav.

Audio and video files can be previewed by your website visitors before they choose to download them using either the embedded media player within WordPress or an external one like jPlayer.

This feature makes the CM Download Manager a perfect tool to manage a Music library, a Video Library, or any other audio collection.


The download page conforms to your website’s WordPress theme and, making it easy for users to understand, navigate and download your files. The CM Download Manager’s file download page shows the number of times the download page has been viewed, the upload date of the file and information, as well as the number of times the file has been downloaded by other visitors.
