podcasting and streaming video

Episode 859 (15:35)

Tom from Atlanta, GA

Tom has a HAM Radio podcast called HQARadio that he’s been doing really well, but he hosts a lot video now and needs a third party hosting option to keep the costs down. He’s doing uStream for live streaming and that’s working well. But he is concerned about video buffering. Leo says that video can kill your bandwidth cap pretty quickly. It’s not like radio where there’s no difference between 100 and a million listeners because it’s over the air. Podcasts are more like magazines where you have hard costs for each viewer.

Leo says that Blip.TV is a great option because once you upload your video there, it gets distributed to Youtube, Vimeo, etc. And it can also be subscribed and downloaded much like iTunes. And at no cost to you. So check that out.
