Better Podcasting #150 – How To Start A New Podcast on Both Media Hosting & Self Hosting

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditlinkedinmail

It’s another battle of podcast media hosting versus podcast self hosting in our 150th episode as we run down the workflow on how to start a podcast (from a technical perspective). SP talks about media hosting and Stephen talks about self-hosting. We break this down into four main sections:

– Ground Work
– Setting Up Your Podcast
– Posting
– Misc Information

In this week’s Better Podcasting Download, we review the new Spotify podcaster dashboard and what it means for people who are self-hosting their podcast and what you should do if you’re already a podcaster in Spotify.

Additionally in the Download, we talk about the new Skype 7 end of life.

During the Better Podback, we chat about a recent exchange with blubrry and their Podcast Directory of 600,000 shows (and how a lot of them are dead).

Finally, Stephen shares a personal story about how he’s STILL LEARNING 150 episodes later.

How to use Skype NDI with Xsplit Broadcaster, OBS Studio & Streamlabs OBS (Plus NDI Virtual Input)

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditlinkedinmail

In this video we walk through how to enable and use the new Skype NDI integration with Xsplit Broadcaster, OBS Studio (Open Broadcaster Software Studio) and Streamlabs OBS.

This video also shows how to use Skype NDI on your local network, as well as how to use NDI Virtual Input to send a return feed back from Xsplit Broadcaster and OBS Studio, which could be helpful if needed over your network (Edit for clarification: As briefly mentioned this is not needed locally – Xsplit has a virtual camera built in and there is a virtual plugin for OBS Studio. The purpose of this demonstration is for those situations where the virtual camera may not suffice, such as over the network).
