Show Notes

Episode 1 of Libsyn Live covered a range of topics. Quick notes and topic links are below.

Question #1

Question #1 came from the audience asking how to generate a Google Plus Hangout on Air to host a podcast live on the internet. Krystal walked through the steps needed to schedule and start a hangout.

 

There was also a comparison between a regular hangout (a private conversation between one or multiple participants, similar to a Skype call) and a hangout on air (a public viewing of the broadcast, allowing for participants, Q&A, chat, and so on).

 

Question #2

Question #2 came from the audience, requesting details on how to switch away from using Feedburner for the RSS feed in order to start using the Libsyn generated RSS feed instead. Krystal walked through how to change who Feedburner pulls from first, then how to update the Libsyn feed so that Feedburner will redirect to Libsyn. This allows iTunes, other directories, and subscribers to automatically update so the move becomes seemless.

Question #3

Question #3 came from the audience, wondering if Libsyn had a Wordpress plugin. Krystal walked through how to setup Wordpress OnPublish so that episodes posted in Libsyn would automatically post to Wordpress.

Breaking News! Krystal was alerted during the show by the Libsyn development team that a plugin using OEMBED is in the works (of course, no ETA yet on when this will be available for beta testing).

 

Question #4

Question #4 was a question Krystal wanted to cover which went over the three different images a producer typically deals with when configuring and pushing out episodes for a show. These include the show artwork, the artwork attached to a file ID3 tag, and the episode thumbnail.
