I have added a new plugin to WordPress called “Podcasting”. This makes it relatively easy to add multimedia file enclosures to your blog postings to make a podcast. You can read more about the plugin and podcasting with WordPress in general here:
Some quick things to keep in mind when podcasting.
- Use formats friendly to portable devices. MP3 is best for audio while AAC is become more supported.
- Compress your files to a size that is downloadable. 100 MB+ might not seem like much on the local network, but could really be painful to somebody getting it from home.
- Don’t add more than one enclosure to a single posting. iTunes and other aggregators will simply ignore all but the first one.
Looking to try it yourself. I demonstrate it here:
