after a little bit of effort and allot of time waiting for the youth ministry domain name to kick back into gear i have finally been able to set us up with podcasting ability. here’s what i had to do:
- obviously we had to convert the audio from our youth service to an mp3 format and store it on our website.
- next, i set up a blogger site for the mp3 files so that i can use it’s atom feed. i set the “link” feature of the post to the url of the mp3 file and just for extra insurance i setup the text of the post as a link to the url of the mp3 file.
- third, i went to feed burner and used their smartcast feature (it’s under the “additional services” section of the feed you set up with feed burner). this gave me a new site feed url. this is the address that i have posted for people to subscribe too. the site feed for receiving the podcast is http://feeds.feedburner.com/ViewPodcast.
now we can podcast our worship services to anyone who wishes to automatically download the mp3 files of our weekly services. sometimes i love technology.
