    I am in the process of creating a video podcast.

    so my question is how do i go through the process of hosting the video and setting it all up so people can suscribe via itunes?

    I will have no trouble making the video, my only prob will be with setting up the actual podcast.

    what is the easiest way? less money the better.

    Thanks For helping.

    what about this?

    "Publish to an FTP or SFTP server."

    well if you use .Mac you can publish direct there and then link it with the xml file to iTunes or you can upload it to your FTP webspace depending on what flavour hosting you got.

    more details of your hosting would be good:)

    both cost the same $30 but that one you looked at had this review


    Hint/Tip by conan

    : This is what I wrote via email to the company:

    ...I purchased your product... I wish I did'nt.

    There are so many bugs! And why the language of the podcasts in the preview is always "English" ?? If you want to see a real good App see "Podcast Maker". Graphic is good, if the rest is working well! I would be glad if you give me back my money, if not, I put it into waste, thanx :-( (11/2/2005, Version: 1.2.5):eek:

    as i stand now i do not have a host or anything. I am starting out fresh.

    I have read on it before and I read something about how some hosts can only support 1 podcast at a time. If i used .mac could i host several podcasts at once?

    westhost.com is what I use, and it's very cheap.. go for the November Special.. you get a ton of stuff for like $17 a month.

    A Small Orange (asmallorange.com)

    I heard of them from him- they're excellent. I couldn't be happier with them.
