Audio-only related content

Documentation sections


Audio-only related content works very similarly to our video related content implementation so we advise first to review this area of our documentation before moving forward with audio-only related content.

Note that you cannot mix both video and audio-only content for related content. It has to be one or the other.

Video ads or audio ads can be played each time a new audio item is loaded within the player. The audio-only related content UI is fully compatible with mobile devices. A built-in error-recovery mechanism is also provided to skip audio related items that may be unavailable.

Supported audio-only streaming protocols are HLS, DASH and MP3/OGG/M4A progressive download. Other video related content features and restrictions generally apply to audio-only related content.

Audio-only related input data

The audio-only related content can be initialised by passing to the relatedLoc setting a URI to a JSON file holding audio-only related content data. You will also need to set relatedAudioOnly player setting to true. Here is a full example of a well-formatted JSON file that can be used for input to audio-only related content.

Read our general related documentation for a guide to JSON files compatible with our audio-only related content.

Audio-only related content settings

relatedAudioOnly: Boolean

This enables audio-only related content layout required to properly display a list of audio-only content. Default: false.

Other settings for video related content also apply for audio-only related content
