This useful tool lets you deliver podcasts from your site without having to worry about any of the technical aspects of how to offer your podcast. When you write your post, you just click a few links to include the location of your MP3 file, a bit of a description, etc, and the plugin takes care of everything else including figuring out the file size and the time length of your podcast, as well as your RSS feed and iTunes.
It then provides a link in the post where you can listen directly to the podcast from the page itself. Or you can download the file. You can choose a popup window if you want. Lots of choices that make both the blogger and the visitor happy.
PodPress also alerts you when there’s an updated version, as I noticed today. And this latest version 6.7 is definitely worth upgrading to as it includes some needed improvements in the Podpress admin pages, especially stats reporting. So I’ve upgraded.
It got me thinking a bit, too. It’s not just audio podcasts that you can do with PodPress but also video. That thinking took me along the road of video cameraphones like the Nokia N93 I wrote about last week.
So I thought, why not? I’ve not yet used my N70 for video (why not? I ask), so at lunchtime I made a short video which you can view below (MP4 format so you’ll need the Quicktime plugin in your browser). So easy! Why on earth have I not done this before!
My next question, then, is – do I need an N93 at all?
