Media File Types Supported in dominKnow | ONE

Options for on-page use as well as Resources and source file storage

The Media library supports a wide range of media files, whether you're using them on pages, providing them as downloadable resources or wanting to keep source files stored in a place that's easy to find.

Media Files For On-Page Use

Here are the image, audio and video file types supported by dominKnow | ONE for use on a Page.

Image FilesAudio FilesVideo Files




For on-page use dominKnow | ONE also supports our own Capture files (our feature for creating software lessons) and SWF files, although many browsers no longer support SWF files.  You can also upload HTML widgets as a zip file.

Why doesn't dominKnow | ONE support every file type?

dominKnow |  ONE supports file types that are standard for use in web or online delivery.

There are many other media file types for images, audio and video files, but most pf these were created for use on a desk-top computer, and can't be delivered or don't deliver well through web content. For example, WMA audio files or WMV video files - these  file types were originally created to run on your local computer either in Windows Media Player or in other Microsoft products such as PowerPoint. These file types aren't supported, though, by web browsers, so being able to add them to a dominKnow | ONE page wouldn't be helpful.

Media Files as Resources

Resources are files that you might want the learner to have access to as part of a course. Examples could include a policy document or a job aid to download for use outside of the course.

Resources are listed under the Resources option in the Theme Menu. You can also link to them from pages (using a button, for example).

Resource files can include media files such as images, audio and video.

They can also include document file types:

  • .doc
  • .docx
  • .rtf
  • .pdf
  • .ppt
  • .pptx
  • .xls
  • .xlsx
  • .keynote
  • .key
  • .pages
  • .numbers

Storing Source Files in the Media Library

You can also upload source files to the Media Library.

For example, a graphic is created using Photoshop. Storing the source PSD file in the Media Library means that it's easy to find the next time it needs to be edited.  

The Media Library supports these file types as source files:

  • .csv
  • .txt
  • .fla
  • .as
  • .aup
  • .flp
  • .cel
  • .band
  • .mpp
  • .cdr
  • .gdraw
  • .pub
  • .pmd
  • .indd
  • .psd
  • .ai
  • .fm
  • .xcf
  • .act
  • .ase
  • .gpl
  • .story
  • .lectora
  • .captivate
