    Re: Podcast Publishing

    We've been asked to do this as well.

    Any hints/tips/restrictions etc. welcome.

    I hear that you can't call them "Podcasts" though 'cos of Apple and it's lawyers.

    How about 'syndicated audio feed'?

    There's a user-unfriendly way of producing your feed at http://www.podcast411.com/howto_1.html - simply upload to your website and away you go

    LibSyn is pretty good if you want a free hosted solution.

    If you just want some software to run on the nearest LAMP server then have a look at PodAdmin

    http://podadmin.sourceforge.net/

    If you wish to combine your podcasts with your Moodle based VLE have a look at the iPodcast module.

    Re: Podcast Publishing

    Well - haven't got very far so far.

    Decided to make sure I could receive a podcast 1st - downloaded Juice (2nd most popular according to BBC) - tried pasting in the Chris Moyles Best bits - B&^^$r all happened.

    Fiffed and faffed - I've got nowhere.

    Eventually gave in and downloaded Itunes (against better principles ) and it worked 1st time - just got to make sure it doesn't take control over all my music

    So - tomorrow back on with trying to publish - anyone out there actually doing this- for real - not just googlebotting :P

    regards

    Re: Podcast Publishing

    We have started playing with podcasts in blackboard.
    It is very easy to do on a mac using garage band. Or just use audacity to create the mp3 and then create the rss by hand.

    The thing with a podcast is it is only a podcast if it can be subscribed to via an rss feed. Otherwise it is just an MP3 you can download.

    Podium (SoftEase) was demonstrated at the RM Primary Conference and seemed a very intuitive bit of software.

    Re: Podcast Publishing

    One thing to remember, it can be done for free with a bit of work Create your mp3 in audacity which is free
    Create the RSS with somthing like
    http://www.easypodcast.com/
    Then upload the rss feed to a server with the mp3s and give people the link

    eg http://myserver.com/pod.xml

    and to be super clever also give

    itpc: / / itpc://myserver.com/pod.xml to automatically open it in itunes

    Re: Podcast Publishing

    iTunes is a very nice bit of software for subscribing to podcasts with.

    Re: Podcast Publishing

    Well, the fault with Juice was me and not it ops:

    The auot subscribe didn't work (using Firefox) and I ended up trying to paste the link to the mp3 file isntead of the rss file ops:

    But success in other areas

    I used this
    http://www.tdscripts.com/webmaster_u...-generator.php

    to generate the rss file (but I'll have to look at that easypod creator - ta)

    I also managed to embed a video and the audio as well
    using Riva Encoder to produce the .flv file and these sites

    http://labnol.blogspot.com/2006/08/h...s-in-your.html

    and

    http://nunzioweb.com/streaming_audio-example.htm

    results at

    http://www.schoolepodco.ik.org

    (I just did the technical bits - rest done by our pupils )

    regards

    Simon
