The podcast feature makes audio-only podcast files out of your existing video uploads and video collections and generates Apple iTunes compatible podcast feeds. You can manage multiple podcast feeds. A good practice is to create a podcast per “show”. For local meetings, you could have a podcast per meeting type, or you may choose to bundle all of the local meetings into one podcast. Once your podcast feed is set up and has at least one episode, you can submit the podcast feed URL to one or more podcast directories. TelVue Connect hosts the podcast feed and audio files. Note TelVue Connect does not currently accept uploading audio files directly, but will automatically create audio-only files from uploaded videos for your podcasts.
