Where to publish your podcast

Media Player Classic

After uploading the podcast online, you need to get listeners. Submit your pocast to iTunes, Google Play and Spotify.

Which player do you use?

I use Media Player Classic. It's a full featured player, that has very simple interface and can play everything.

Recommended audio editor?
Audacity editor

For me it's Audacity - it's an open source multi-track audio editor and recorder. Also great as trimmer if you need just cut audio file or if you need to compress it. If you have never used any editor before, don't worry, it's easy to use. Available for Windows, Linux and Mac.

Convert audio

Not all services support all file types. If you need to convert your audio file, use fre:ac - an open source tool that converts between MP3, MP4/M4A, WMA, Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, AAC, WAV and Bonk formats.

The best audio formats / codecs
  • the most common format
  • lossy compression
  • relatively larger file size when compred with modern formats
  • lossless audio format
  • very high quality
  • open source format
  • lossless format
  • very large file size
  • lossy format
  • similar size as MP3, but highr quality
Basic audio recording tips
  • Keep the microphone close to the source
  • Use a microphone pop screen (you can make your own very cheap)
  • Avoid ambient noice
Sounds, music loops:
  • SampleFocus - each wek you'll get 10 free credits for downloading, get more credits for uploading
  • SampleSwap - free loops and audio samples for electronic tunes
  • Looperman - royalty free loops, samples and sounds
  • Soundpacks - download free sample packs
  • Adam Vitovsky - free songs for personal, noncommercial & commercial purposes
  • PacDV - free of charge tracks for your video, film, audio and multimedia productions, link back required
  • YouTube Audio Library - a lot of free songs and sound effects for videos that you monetize on YouTube

If you offer music files, sounds, please let me know and I'll add you to the list. Thanks!

Streaming platforms, listen on your phone or computer:
  • Spotify - one of the oldest
  • YoutubeMusic
  • Deezer - paid accounts offers better quality (FLAC - 1411 kb/s), the free account is limited to only MP3 - 128kb/s

All are ad supported and usually there is a limit of how many songs you can skip every hour (often it's 6 songs every hour).
