Building the Opening Night

It would be nice to have a bit of a crowd along for the opening night just to get the regular weekly podcasting off to a good start so I’ve created a facebook Event for this particular show which you can invite people to. I’ll also be making a post over on my long established blog site at DARnet Andy Roberts and one or two other places if I can think of them.

The podcast opening night will also be part of the Cafe Noodle July Ustream Festival, a great music community organised by Matt Stevens Loop.

I think it should be possible to embed the ustream show here on this site – so that’s something I’ll be having a go at too.

Podcast 4th and Final Prototype

Well I’m surprised how quickly 4 weeks have passed, I even made a mistake during the recording and referred to it as prototype 3 but this is in fact the 4th and final podcast prototype in the series. Next week’s edition will be the official opening night of the Andy Roberts Podcast – episode 1. I ought to make an event out of that on the facebook page really, and invite people.

Anyway, here’s the podcast player for listening online to my Andy Roberts podcast prototype number 4:

Podcast Prototype No 1

Podcast

I had an idea about turning the Weekly Ustream.tv show into a podcast and started putting it into practice.

So last Tuesday instead of just recording some of the individual songs during the webcast for uploading to youTube, I recorded the whole half an hour or so of the show, songs and talking, and saved it using the ustream record system. I was fairly happy with the way that went from a performance point of view, it worked better for me than premeditated songs and faffing about with song tit;es description and tags in the middle of a broadcast. The experiment was to see what I could do with the resulting file. I downloaded it to my Mac – ustream provides a file in .flv format (Flash) and when I clicked on the downloaded file it opened an application I’d never seen before! Mpeg-streamclip was able to export in various formats including quicktime, Mpeg4, and audio only. So far so good. The quicktime version allowed me to quickly edit out the five songs from within the video and save them individually as .mov , all ready for uploading to youtube.

So this meant that with a small amount of effort I can use ustream for the live streaming show, record it all in one go, and still have the songs available in youtube for embedding elsewhere and so on.

But what about the podcast?

Ah, well I went away for a few days, so now I’m getting around to it.

The audio podcast is here:

http://andyroberts.me/wp-content/podcast/Podcast-prototype-1.mp3

with an RSS feed here:

http://andyroberts.me/?feed=podcast

and the video podcast is is still hosted on ustream at

http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/7526414

also embedded below

But this still doesn’t count as a podcast yet until I have it set up as a series you can subscribe to in iTunes or the audio player of your choice. Fortunately I still the rest of the month of June to get that boxed off, since this is still the prototyping period, and I’ve set the goal of getting started for real in July.

Here we go again:
