Audio uploaded in the FFWiki uses the OGG format. An audio file embedded to a page is accessed by means of the Listen template.


The template:Listen has three fields to be filled in: the filename, the songname and the align fields.

  • The filename field is filled with the previously uploaded audio file's name, including its extension.
  • The songname field is filled with the audio file's name that is to be displayed in the article in which the sound file is embedded.
  • The align field is filled with the parameters "left", "none" and "right." As expected, this field aligns the template to the left or to the right of the article in which the audio file is embedded. If the parameter is "none" the template will align itself automatically to the left and introduce a break in the current text.


If you wish to add the file


to any certain page you must type

{{Listen|filename=Aerith.ogg|songname="Aerith's Theme"|align=left}}

which will produce

"Aerith's Theme"
Trouble with the audio sample?

Notice that if we vary the parameter align the template's alignment varies accordingly:

{{Listen|filename=Aerith.ogg|songname="Aerith's Theme"|align=right}}


"Aerith's Theme"
Trouble with the audio sample?

To play audio files on an article:

  • Simply click the "play" button.

When inserting the name please put song titles in quotation marks ("), and if article has multiple versions of the song with the same title, but from different games, put "from Final Fantasy Y" formula (without inclusion of the quotation marks).


Other than having a slow connection, there are a number of reasons why the player might not work. Some browsers may not be able to play the sound file because they lack the required plugins. The template's media player may be used by installing Java or the Xiph QuickTime Components. You must download and install QuickTime, if you do not have it already, as well as download and install the XiphQT Components if you prefer QT over Java.

Linux users of should be able to make use of the template by simply installing the PulseAudio sound server package along wih its ESD compatibility layer. Currently, there is an unsolved compatibility issue with the mplayer package.


You can include audio on your community via a few different methods, including SoundCloud and Spotify widgets.



A SoundCloud player

To embed a SoundCloud player, simply copy the URL of the page, then insert it in the following code:

<soundcloud url="" />

This will generate a player like the following:

If you're embedding a single song, you'll want to make use of the height parameter to reduce the height of the player:

<soundcloud url="" height="166" />

This will generate a player like the following:

Other useful parameters are listed on SoundCloud's documentation.



A Spotify player

To embed a Spotify player, right-click any song, artist, album or playlist in the Spotify player and select "Copy Spotify URI".

Replace the URI with your copied one in the following code:

<spotify uri="spotify:artist:5JkgywsS3vj9XiIPkLRbyk" />

This will generate a player like the following:

We support the theme, view, width and height parameters, as detailed in Spotify's documentation. For example:

<spotify uri="spotify:track:0mlWZB9nx3D3aERgf7UHwj" theme="white" />

This will generate a player like the following:

Note that Spotify itself is not available in all countries - you can see which countries Spotify supports on Wikipedia.

Audio files

You can upload audio files to Wikia if they're in a supported format such as OGG. Embedding audio is similar to adding a photo:

  • Go to Special:Upload on your wikia.
  • Upload your supported audio file, and make a note of the file name.
  • Open an article for editing.
  • Enter the following wikitext to embed your audio file (replacing "example" with whatever your filename is):
  • Save your article. It should display an audio player as seen here (example from Wikipedia):

File type support

OGG (supported)

For audio files, we strongly support the open-source format Ogg Vorbis (OGG), which does not require proprietary software to record or play. You can embed and play OGG files directly from any page by adding a link to the file like this: [[File:Name.ogg]]

There are many OGG converters available on the web to convert files into a Wikia-compatible format: see

MP3 (not supported)

Because MP3 is not a free/open-source format, the MediaWiki software cannot provide an integrated player for MP3 files, and we do not support the format by default.

Other formats

There are many other formats for audio files that Wikia does not support by default. If your community has a strong need for audio in formats other than OGG, please feel free contact Wikia to discuss your situation further.
