I have a question about posting code with an audio file in it

Because it would be hosted on either dropbox, or opendrive, I wouldn’t want to give out the link in forums, or coding playgrounds.

The reason is because there’s a certain limit to the bandwidth you’re given to use per month.

Are there any audio files that are freely available that can be used as demo sound when posting on here, or coding playgrounds such as jsfiddle, or codepen?

Even if it’s just a midi wav sound file type thing.

<audio controls>
  <source src="" type="audio/mpeg">
</audio>

Would I be able to use these in my audio code examples?

I’ve been trying to find something I could use so I can stay away from using audio streams.

Just for when I test audio codes out in code playgrounds, or posting it in codes in forums.

Download Sample Audio

Want to test the music in your app?

Does sound in your app appears legible to hear?

Sample-Videos not just allow programmers, testers, designers, developers to download sample videos but even mp3 sound file for demo/test use. Now testing music within your app becomes easier without any hustle. With uncontrolled sound levels, one feels as if encountering noise while using an app. By testing out sounds, end users can be safe from harmful sounds that can possible incur damage to inner ear structures leading to temporary or permanent noise hearing loss.

This service helps testers or developers to control app sound levels as per the surroundings. Great apps with noisy sound or intolerable music volumes can prove to be a big disaster letting users to switch between apps. The best thing is sample sound is free and very easy to download. Select the sound sample of your convenient size. Have it download to your desktop. Test it in your app and use the sound file for your app functionality. With just one simple click, developers can take mp3 sample. Check out the one which suits your requirements. All you need to do is hit the DOWNLOAD button, and get started.

Does the site permit hotlinking?

That’s the type of audio file I need to find.

One that is freely able to be hotlinked for audio testing purposes.

I’ve been seeing this used in other coding forums, would this be fine to use?

Linking to a site is not the same thing as hotlinking to their content. I am very happy when other sites choose to link to mine, but I am not happy to have people hotlinking my content and using it without permission and with no acknowledgement of my site.

If you can’t find clear permission to use a site’s content, then you need to contact them and request permission before using it, or move on and find another site.

(And I know it’s Christmas, but you’re going to have to do this yourself. The rest of us have better things to do than read through multiple TOS on your behalf. smile)

I think this is a good one:
What do you think?

I can use audio from here to test codes with.
And I wouldn’t be using it for anything else.

Upload and direct link files for free.

Free hotlinking for all files.
Store up to 2GB free and share anywhere.

Direct hotlink mp3s and build your own playlists.
Embed music and images on any website.

Commercial use of Hotlinking

Kiwi6 provides free hotlinking (“direct linking”) for personal use only. Hotlinking refers to the practice of directly linking to or embedding content on another page without first linking to Kiwi6.
You may not use free hotlinking if:

Your usage is primarily for monetization.
You are using Kiwi6 in a manner consistent with commercial use. For example, as a content delivery network.

Instead what I could do is, use either opendrive or dropbox to host the dummy test demo audio files for testing only. And then pick one of those to host the no copyright music that is allowed to be freely shared.

This might be a better option.
