It would be great to be able to embed audio content, as it is actually possible with Youtube, in MindMeister! Very helpful for extracting information from interviews, lessons and so on.

    @Philippe Boukobza Brilliant idea. I'm a teacher and embedding an audio file like a podcast would be amazing for educational use cases. I love outlining homework tasks using MindMeister, and directly attaching a podcast to the mind maps I share with my students would support them in developing their answers. Thanks for suggesting this!

    I do add audio Files as an attachement in the center and build my map while listening :)

    Tell me what you think :)

    Hi Oliver! Thank your very much for this very useful Hack.

    Can you build your mind map while listening?

    I uploaded a mp3 file in the center of a mindmap but when I listened to it, I was unable to see the branches and to build the mind map in the same time.

    Love this, @Oliver Wich! I hadn't actually considered just adding the audio file as an attachment for listening, it's a pretty good workaround! I do have to either download the file or open the same mind map in a new tab to keep editing in real time, but these both worked.

    Still a fan of the idea of enabling embedding soundcloud/other audio formats directly into the mind map - would make things a bit smoother, especially for podcasts. I feel like we're really in the renaissance age of audio content these days, so it'd be great to integrate this with MindMeister.

    Very useful comment @Andrew Lapidus ! Thanks to it, I was able to edit the map while listening the attached audio, opening the same map in a new tab.

    Yes you are right... listening and editing isn't possible at the same time.

    Maybe something to implement๐Ÿคฉ

    Great, excellent, and very far-reaching suggestion, @Oliver Wich ; thank you so much. As I (yesterday's newbie here, happy to meet you all)am going to specialize in language-learning support tools for my clients, that would not merely be another feature. But open and provide a whole range of beautiful spelling and intonation learning maps. AND open up the human audio sense in general for assimilating content in the native language as well. The same goes for MeisterNote notes, of course. Add an auto-repeat, google-translate, and(greedy now๐Ÿ˜Œ) text-to-speech function, and a whole new market with tons of pre-existing content in wikis, word/vocabulary lists, lyric libraries, and many, many others is waiting. In MeisterNote I already saw a data type of Spotify files that might or not help a potential implementation.
