What file types does CONTENTdm support?

Applies to
  • CONTENTdm
Answer

CONTENTdm can store any file format. It can also display any file format that can be displayed in your browser either natively or via a plug-in. This includes all common formats such as JPG, GIF, PNG or TIFF images, WAV or MP3 audio files, AVI or MPEG video files, PDF / PDFa files, as well as URLs and EAD finding aids. Large-format image collections also benefit from the JPEG2000 capability available with CONTENTdm. XML data in the METS/ALTO format can be imported using the CONTENTdm Flex Loader.

Audio and video files that are H.264-encoded and Flash-compatible will play inline when selected by an end user. Other audio and video file formats can be stored but will be played via a plug-in or browser capability to support the format.
