Branded RSS podcasting: the definitive guide (new ebook)

posted in: Branded RSS, RSS | 0

This is a short episode to announce my latest ebook:

Branded RSS podcasting: the definitive guide

This new ebook is now available via BrandedRSS.com as well as on all Amazon stores worldwide. Although the list price is US$22, for a limited time, you can get purchase it directly from me at BrandedRSS.com for only US$11.

Whose domain is in your RSS feed: yours or somebody else’s? Of course, it should only be yours. And the domain registrar should be completely independent from your hosting company or hosting companies. Otherwise, the conflict of interest that would arise upon any dispute or sudden expulsion would be like hiring your spouse —a lawyer— to represent you in your own divorce. The only way to be absolutely sure to retain existing podcast subscribers is to own your domain and use it as the basis of your RSS feed. This new ebook explains why RSS is essential for syndication on platforms like Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, RadioPublic, Stitcher, TuneIn and more, and why it must be totally under your own control. This new ebook also compares 4 options where you can accomplish all of this on a single server, be it a marketed “podcast host” or a standard website host, including the costs, primary advantages and disadvantages of each.

Do you have a website or blog? If you would like to promote this ebook on your website or blog, you can earn affiliate commissions with every sale clicked from your site. More information to become an affiliate of my books is at the bottom of the page, at BrandedRSS.com.

AAC test bonus: Does this your device play this file?

posted in: AAC | 0

Many people are afraid that AAC may not be playable on all current players. Many people mistakenly believe that that letter A in AAC stands for Apple. That is incorrect. The AAC acronym stands for Advanced Audio Códec, without any mention of Apple in the name. Apple did not create it. Apple just likes it. AAC has been standardized by ISO and IEC, as part of the MPEG–2 and MPEG–4 specifications. AAC was released in 1997, 21 years ago as I write this. It’s worth it to take some time to test it and see the results. All Android versions from 2.3 and later support AAC. My Pixel XL phone has Android version 9, aka Android Pie. Are there any Android devices still in use that are older than version 2.3? If you know of any device that cannot play this file, please write to me via contact@BeyondPodcasting.com , including the device model and operating system.

By the way, this AAC file has 48 kHz audio sampling, as do all of my recent MP3 show episodes from BeyondPodcasting, CapicúaFM, Tu salud secreta and Tu radio global. See my article All audio production & distribution should go 48 kHz in ProVideo Coalition magazine.

Let’s see what we can discover together. See you at BeyondPodasting.com.
