Distribute Podcasts to others, perhaps via different p2p-networks?

22.10.2004 - 14:39 / filled under default

As I was following the discussion on podcasters about how to name a file (don't forget to check out John's "Podcast File Name Usability" ) one topic arised: We don't need long names because when I look at the file, I know that DSC is the daily sourcecode but not that Dawn & Drew Show is named DNDS.

While I know that ipodder has some bittorrent built in, I have to admit: I can't configure the client to work with my firewall for uploading, can't regulate how much bandwith should be used and therefore I close ipodder as soon as I am finished. But some p2p works for me and I could think about starting up some p2p programm with only podcasts in it. (Which brings another reason why metatags should be filled: If grabbed through this channel, I don't know where it comes from and I need proper id-tags.)

This way I could share my downloads with the world and to be honest: Some shows I don't need at once, it would be enough to have them once they finished downloading. Other shows which I want badly as soon as they are online I would catch from there also if I know a high availability.

So there are some questions I would like to share:

  • What do you think about users inserting your podcasts into p2pnetworks

  • Would it be okay for you that your podcasts are shared this way

  • Would you encourage it

  • Would you consider changing the name of your files for easier findability

  • Would you tag your files different to let people know where it is from?

  • Is a common creative licence available and how could we integrate this?
