Submitting Podcasts: iTunes Works – Yahoo Issues

I have had great success getting my first client Podcast into iTunes.  First off, Apple has a great tutorial on everything you need to know to create the Podcast feed.  I was also using FeedForAll to create the feed and it seems a little over complicated, but it had a great walk-thru of how to create an iTunes Podcast feed.  Success with iTunes.

Yahoo is a slightly different outcome.  I just submitted the iTunes Podcast XML file to Yahoo and they accepted it no problem.  A few days later it showed up!  Then it disappeared.  I’ve gotten no response from Yahoo on issues so I’m not sure why it’s gone.  I’ve submitted it a second time and am waiting for it to show back up.

Overall, it’s not really that hard to get into iTunes and Yahoo, you just need a good tutorial to walk you though it.

Creating an iTunes Feed with FeedForAll

I just used FeedForAll to create my first iTunes feed! It’s quite easy as they have step by step tutorial in the help files that made creating the feed a breeze. Now I just have to get my files uploaded to the web server and see if it works.

I’ll be back later to give follow up information. 🙂

Podcasting Server

Apple is not selling their servers as Podcasting Servers!

“The emergence of podcasts and blogs provides schools and departments with powerful new tools for classroom management, collaboration, discussions, portfolios, and content distribution. Recording and distributing podcasts, and writing and publishing in blogs, can create dynamic discussion and information flow that can continue outside of the classroom.”

Everything you need comes installed in one simple package from Apple.

General Podcast Questions

{from a co-worker}

Can you share some information on the actual logistics for podcasting?

– How do we record someone giving a elevator pitch?
– How are podcasts hosted?
– How are podcasts distributed?
– How do people access podcasts?
– Are they delivered via RSS feed?

{my answer}

Excellent Questions. I know of Podcasting, but haven’t done it. Yet 🙂
– We can use any type of audio recording software. I hear that Audio Recorder (http://www.highcriteria.com/) works well on a PC to record conversations via Skype.
– Or we could use something like Audacity to record a conversation via a computer: http://audacity.sourceforge.net/
– Or we could use podomatic to record from computer directly to a podcast server. It’ll do the rest.
– The client needs a good microphone to record, I’d suggest a Logitech USB Headset as they’ve been quite nice. Lee does have one too if you’d like to see one.
– The more professional they want to go the more they need to spend on recording. We can do a decent job for almost free, but some companies like to do professional recording as it sounds more professional. Then you’d need to find a studio to record in.
– Podcasts are usually hosed on the client’s blog. If they don’t have one, then we could set one up.
– Podcasts are distributed via RSS just like blog posts. We can also submit them to iTunes and Yahoo for free.
– People can access them via iTunes, Yahoo, download them directly or one of the many podscast subscription software that’ll monitor the RSS feed for new podcasts.
– Here is an idea how it works : http://help.ziepod.com/index.php?pid=050811091346 – May not be the best tutorial but it may help.
