Storing your score library

Having created your scores, you'll need to store them on your web server where they can be accessed by our servers.

When it is time to publish your scores then you'll refer to each score by it's URL.

Media / mime types

It's important you serve your score files with the correct media type:

File extension Description Required media type
.sco Encrypted Sibelius score application/x-sibelius-score
.sib Sibelius score application/x-sibelius-score
.mxl Compressed MusicXML application/vnd.recordare.musicxml
.xml Uncompressed MusicXML application/vnd.recordare.musicxml+xml
.pdf PDF application/pdf

Note: media type is the same thing as mime type or content type - the terms are effectively synonymous, so don't let that confuse you!
