post podcasts to your website

So, the I found a tutorial for soundbooth that explains different ways to save and export your podcasts. Well, thats great, but how do you but them online?

Similar to photos, audio files need to be compressed before they are shared, especially via the internet. This way, loading times will be faster. In soundbooth, you have the option of saving your project in different formats. Personally, I usually save things in .wav, midi, or mp3s because they can be played in most audio players… Windows Media Player, Quicktime, etc. However, you have some options in soundbooth that are worth exploring. If you watch the tutorial, it also gives some pointers on picking quality/size and all of that. Think = photoshopped pictures.

Here comes the cool part. Google has a sweet mp3 player that people can embed for free in their web pages. This will allow a viewer to click on your podcast and listen to the file directly in on the page without opening a new program to play the file! Neat, huh? All the info about the player is here.

I found the code already, so I’ll go ahead and give it to you… Make sure to replace “Your_MP3_URL” with your actual url.

<object width="289" height="28" data="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash">
 <param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff" />
<param name="flashvars" value="playerMode=embedded" />
<param name="src" value="" />
<param name="wmode" value="window" />
<param name="quality" value="best" />

That's all!

  1. This is pretty informational, and helps with getting your podcast to an MP3 file.
    However, it doesn’t really seem like a seems more like’s a link that takes you to a How-To that someone else has created. I think it would be more informational to the reader if you, yourself, “did” the tutorial. For example, instead of giving a link to the tutorial, maybe you can explain that tutorial so the reader doesn’t have to toggle between tabs.
    I do, however, like how you put the code needed for the MP3 player in your tutorial, that is more of the “How-To” quality. And the MP3 player is pretty nifty, especially if you want the MP3 player to mirror your site and make it look less thrown together.
    All in all, it is fairly informative, maybe next time just make it more personable by creating a step-by-step tutorial.
