Sorry, Solveig - dead link!

Man, not sure what happened there. It's good now, thanks.

AUDIO!!

I can see where your subject could be well suited to video, but please don't slight the audio format.

As well as tips and tricks to OOo, I would be interested in news and information about how OOo is being used and integrated into businesses. It would not need to be a long show if you could provide show notes that would point us to full stories and if you have a tip that needs video, or pictures you could point us there through the show notes.

I will subscribe as soon as you tell me where to sign up.

(Move a bit closer to the mic, that will help with your audio fullness and try to get an external mic. That sounded like a mic on a laptop which is why you have all the other noise in there.)

I am an avid listener to podcasts and vidcasts. This are some of the solutions:

- Libsyn
Premier company to host podcasts, is easy to set up have stablish plugins with wordpress and others and provide also it's own portal to host the mp3.

Cons: Not very OGG friendly.

- Talkshoe
Talkshoe is great if you want to take live calls and listeners can either listen on talkshoe or call you up during live broadcast.

Cons: Somewhat Windows exclusively. Have heard problems on publishing mp3s (time wise) and support is also not inmediate.

- Podshow, BluBrry, EarthMusicNetwork, PodcastPickle.
Networks are good way to republish your work which can make your podcast more popular.

Cons: You loose control who is listening where.

- Podtrack
Great solution to track your listeners and even get some analytics on them.

Video:
- Stickam and UStream
Great way to republish and record your shows, take chats and even communicate with users via other channels. I think this is a great solution.

Cons: Bandwith intensive since is video, and you share the bandwith with other broadcasters.

Hardware:
- Get a microphone that do encoding to digital on the microphone (avoid analog signal to get on the laptop/desktop).

- Gizmo to record conversations or Skype Pro with Skypecasts.

- Get a mixer in order to balance the different quality.

- Digital recorder to do 'on the field' recordings.

Hi Dpeach,

Thanks for the help! I did have the mike on a laptop; I cannot yet, in the name of all that is holy, bully my desktop into recording. I'll need to create a better place for the recording.

Thanks for the ideas on what to do for audio.
