eSense Skin Response
How do I use my own audio or video?
For data files which you can load as own media into the eSense App, the general limitations by Android and iOS apply. We have successfully tested the following:
- Images: PNG and JPG (GIF can be loaded but isn’t animated)
- Audio: MP3, WMA and WAV (Android) and MP3, WAV and AAC (iOS)
- Videos: MOV, MP4 and 3GP (Android) and MOV, MP4 and M4V (iOS)
- If your audios or images are in other formats you simply can convert the files on your computer. Just use a free tool like Free Audio Converter: https://www.chip.de/downloads/Any-Video-Converter_42658474.html
- Another tip: You can also directly download videos from YouTube and format them to suitable format (MP4) with tools like https://notube.net/de
You can use your own pictures in the picture module, your own videos in the video module or your own music or melodies in the audio module in the procedures.
Android usually enables this without any further problems. As long as you allow the eSense app to access your files on your device, you can upload them to the eSense app.
iOS is a bit more restrictive. As usual, you can use your pictures from your device in the iCloud for pictures and videos. On iOS, the power saving mode must also be deactivated, otherwise the videos in the procedures cannot be played.
For audio files you need iTunes (or an alternative such as “CopyTrans Manager”). This is where your music or melody must be. You can find your music in iTunes (or CopyTrans Manager) under the tab “My Sound” and insert it into your procedures.

On iOS the power saving mode must also be deactivated, otherwise the videos in the procedures cannot be played.
