I wanted to upload the music we always play to our baby to Arlo Baby, so we can just push a button on the camera and play it.

I assumed it is possible, but the only options I'm finding is choosing from provided songs, or recording from a microphone.

 

Am I missing something?

Ok... I just went thru all info I had on it ... even tried to access the memory in the device thinking I could  pull over music, but the end result is as you thought NG. ( this was all tested on a PC...will check IOS too in a little while )

 

There is audio recording into the device and the canned music/sounds/etc they have you access on the web and thats it.

What may work and I haven't tried this yet is inputting music when doing the voice record...will test it out soon

 

You should post this in the wish area...  https://community.netgear.com/t5/Arlo-Idea-Exchange/idb-p/arlo-idea-exchange

 

Netgear does review it .

I've recorded voice to it, but will see if I can find out more about adding a music file and get back to you

Yeah,I obviously saw that. But it doesn't say how to add a custom song, e.g. from a local MP3 file.

Welcome.... the only other thing noted you should see is the mem is maxed at 20Mb with half left.

The songs are compress or low bit rate that they use...

 

With the mem left in mine, it only allowed 8 min+ of recording ( not sure if this is a per file max or not )... But my reg songs run a few MB each and would need conversion if able to add anyway.

Yeah, I saw that. But 20MB can still hold 20-30 minutes of okayish-quality MP3. It's not for hifi listening 🙂
