MMS / receive media files?


#1

Hello!

I’m developing a platform that supports the submission of sound files (any format) via mobile phone. I’ve been seeking a solution that will allow the platform to be portable and global rather than tied to a US gateway provider. Right now, I’m using email to get it done which allows people to submit via SMS --> email or simply via an email client.

SMSSync could be a great solution for an upcoming workshop / field-test I’m doing in Kenya - but I suspect it doesn’t support MMS. Can anyone confirm or deny that, and if confirmed - any other solutions come to mind?

Thanks in advance!

Claudia

Hi Cbernett, Here are the SMSSync Docs - http://smssync.ushahidi.com/

There have been other plugins used for sound into Ushahidi. Maybe this blog post will assist

I’ll also ask our SMS developer for his thoughts
