On this episode, Soundcloud.com announces that they will soon be supporting RSS feeds for their audio hosting service. I discuss what I think of the service for use as a podcast audio hosting solution and how you can get into the Soundcloud beta to be a tester for this new feature.
Learn what options you have when choosing a microphone for your video podcast productions. In most cases audio is as important or even more important than the quality of your video. Find out the different types of microphones that you can use together with whatever video camera you have to get the best quality audio possible out of your video productions.
Finally I explain how itunes and various devices (ipods, ipads, iphones, etc) display your ID3 tags (metadata) both in itunes and on Apple devices. Since November of 2005, Apple has been using a combination of both the metadata that you insert into your mp3 files and the information contained in your RSS feed to come up with the information that is displayed on it’s various devices. Learn what tags control this information so that you can have more control of what information people are seeing about your podcast.
