Handling audio, image, and videos files

I’m trying to decide what is the best route to go. I have an app that has a lot of different media files depending on what language you choose. All these files live in the resources of the app so you can image the more languages the bigger the app will get. I use to have all the media files on a server and had the app download them all but there was a lot of issues with slow connectivity and no internet service at all. What is the best way to handle this issue?

Hi @dadixon,
This has been the issue with developers, there are a couple of options available to you,

  1. You can bundle all the assets are you are already thinking
  2. You can download the resources for only the language the user selects or purchases

With the download issue, try hosting them on a cloud based service like AWS/Azure and cache the resources so that you do not download them everytime. There is no silver bullet, each developer tries a different solution and stick with the one that works for them.
