This module comes with a handy flash player that can be embedded in your site to allow streaming of the audio without allowing downloads. Videos can even be captured by webcam and before saving that video the user can preview the video to make sure it's all good before sending it live. Also the video answer which is selected as best for a question will be shown randomly in the "Best Video Answers" block.
The audio module allows users to post their questions or answers as audio content. Audio is an important medium for community communication and is proven to be much more effective than text - people just can't help but listen. The recent rise of the podcast phenomenon is an example of the trend towards audio content over text.
