Blubrry Plugin Ports Podcasts From Many Platforms

Apr 22nd, 2009 | By | Category: Podcasting, Podcasting Networks

In Stories With Alliterative Headlines (see above) this week, podcasting network Blubrry released a new Power Press plugin for their users, which aims to simplify moving podcast content to the Word Press platform from other content management systems:

“While the latest version of PowerPress contains a large number of bug fixes we have a new feature that includes a conversion tool for podcasters using MovableType, Blogger, Drupal, TypePad and other CMS applications.

Moving a blog to WordPress is relatively easy, but moving a blog and all of your podcast as well is much harder. The import tool we have released with this release makes it very simple.

  1. Import your old Blog into a New Word Press Site.
  2. Install and configure the Blubrry Podcast Plugin PowerPress
  3. Choose the Import Function in the Tools Section of PowerPress

What happens is the import tool looks for hyperlinked media in your blog posts. It then presents you a list of all media and the post it has found, you can quickly pick which RSS feed you would like the media imported to.”

It’s nice to see companies like Blubrry continually tweaking and improving their podcast services. While many podcasters are technologically savvy, many others are not, and both nerds and non-nerds benefit from these kind of thoughtful improvements that handle the mind-numbing, time-sucking details like this.

    I cannot tell you how much I love this plugin. I needed a little help at first configuring it (thanks to @robblatt for walking me through it), but now that it’s up and running it is incredibly easy to use. Also, blubrry’s statistics and tracking options on their site are fantastic. 5 stars.

    Yeah, this plugin is really awesome and the support they give is amazing. I can’t wait till it has a few more features (which I know they are working on) and I’ll switch ALL my sites from…umm…what was that other one called….oh yes, podpress.

  4. Sarah and Grant – Thanks for the positive words about the plug in. We work hard to support and provide worthwhile services to the podcasting community. Please let us know what features you’d like to see added to the plug in!
