Here goes-- first test podcast on this blog

Here it is-- my first mp3 podcast.

I created it using Audacity, exported it as an mp3 using the lame encoder. I uploaded it (it's about 2MB and about 4.5 minutes long) first to box.net but that turned out to require you to leave this site and log into their's, which I don't want, so I put it on my hosted site (not a permanent solution, btw).

I added the file's address to the "Link" field for this article. I am also going to link it within the body of this post, just in case.

I am going to test it to see if it works, then I might add it to feedburner, just to test.

This podcast is a test podcast, so please be kind. I need to know if it is good enough quality.

By the way, I am not going to be streaming the podcast at this time, so it is download only.


EDITED-- Okay, it seemed to not allow me to download the file whole hog, but instead triggered quicktime to play it in my browser... interesting. This means that to stream or not to stream is a function of the client not the server. Nice to know.

Also, that link field that I entered the URL to the file in made the title of this entry the link to the podcast.

So this worked pretty well and only storing my podcasts (and later, videocasts) is an ongoing problem... That leads me to believe this just might work out... what do you think?
