Using Obsidian as audio vault?

Hey, there, I have a few questions. I need to organize a large number of audio files that will be recorder over a period of time. Was thinking about using obsidian with this. The idea is to have an overview, connect files to people, places, notes about content, etc, so I have a better editing experience afterwards.

so, a few questions:

How does obsidian cope with, say, 200gb of audio files in a vault?

Is there a way to add tags or properties to audio files?

is there a way to do ML transcrptions in Obsidian?

Thanks for any help :slight_smile:

Obsidian Sync supports only 100 GB total storage size (all vaults combined). If you plan to work only between mac and iPhone, then you can use iCloud to sync. iCloud offers versalite selection of different plans. Note also that Obsidian Sync has 200 MB per file size limitation.

Is there a way to add tags or properties to audio files?

Not directly. You have to use Binary File Manager community plugin to automatically create md‑files for your attachment files. I haven’t personally used it. I create notes manually for attachments and there are many ways to create notes quickly including Unique note creator, Daily notes and QuickAdd community plugin. If you have one specific attachment workflow, then using Unique note creator with custom template should be excellent choice.

There are no official features regarding speech to text. See this post for further discussion:
