I would like to embed a sound (a bird song) for a question, but I could see how other people might want to embed sounds for other biological questions.

Is there any way to do this?


There is no such feature. You can upload the file somewhere and share the link.

    $\begingroup$ @ImprisonedRhesus Google drive? But there are other free and open sites as well. $\endgroup$

Music stackexchange already uses a plug-in for exactly this purpose. It won't be very hard to add one for bio site.

This is the discussion on their meta, and the discussion cites examples-1 (audio-only) and 2 (audio with video)

However an "include" or "require" function could be used to specify whether the user want to use the plug-in.
