Kahoot! has a set library of countdown music based on the length of each question's timer. These tracks are not always appropriate for the topic or audience.
It would be great if Kahoot! allowed for uploading of my own sound clips that could be played once or on loop during a question countdown timer. Alternatively, if I want no music to play and only want to hear embedded youtube videos, I should be able to toggle that.
Since the countdown music is not currently editable, the closest option is to embed a youtube video that will serve as the background music you want. You can set the start/stop time of the video to be however long you want the question to remain answerable. You can then set each question timer to 5 seconds. You only end up hearing Kahoot!'s 5 second tracks if you've not receive an answer from everyone before the video stops playing. If you'd prefer, you can also use the "skip" button during gameplay to end the question before the Kahoot! music starts. Any answers submitted before using that button will count.
