Allowed File Types

RDC Digital Repository currently supports these file formats:

  • Audio file formats: MP3, WAV
  • Image file formats: JPG (JPEG), PNG, GIF, TIFF (TIF)
  • Text file formats: PDF, doc & docx (converted to PDF for display)
    • NOTE: Powerpoint files (PPT) will need to be converted to PDF. All animated functions will become static.
  • Video & digital multimedia file formats: MP4 (MPEG4, MPEG-4), MOV, AVI, M4V, MKV, OGG, QT

An additional note about PDF

PDF is a good file format choice, but keep this in mind when submitting your work: 

  • Do not embed media files in a PDF, as this can significantly increase the size of the file
  • Do not encrypt or lock a PDF file, as this will make it impossible to perform optical character recognition (OCR) in order to create fully searchable text
