A friend of mine asked me to look into podcasting and what would be involved in getting that to work. This will be a quick post, which is part of testing things out. As I currently understand you can pretty much run a podcast with WordPress without any extra plugins or anything. This post will test this out. Steps to get this post out are (not all done yet):
- Create start of post
- Place in Podcast, and Episode categories
- Record episode
- Save episode in supported format (looking at posting to iTunes)
- Upload episode to here
- Link media as both media, and as a link to the file
- Test to see if we can get an accepted RSS feed with the file included
- Test importing to iTunes
If all of that works out, that would be “most basic setup” but I also want to test how things work “better” with the recommended Podcast plugin, and see if that ends up being worth it. I think maybe it does for some features, but if this works it may not be really that worthwhile for the existing setup.
That should be a playable link… And:
Intro Podcast 01 is a link to the download.
Intro Podcast 01 a link to the attachment page.
OK, I have done steps 1-5. I am OK with how that’s working so far. Now to test 6 and 7…
