How to Add Custom Podcast Channels for Blubrry
In this section of the Blubrry PowerPress plugin, we will look at how to add a Custom Podcast Channel.
Step 1) Login to the WordPress Dashboard.
Step 2) From the left-hand sidebar of the Dashboard, navigate to PowerPress -> Podcast Channels.
If you want to distribute both an mp3 and an ogg version of your podcast, use the default podcast channel for your mp3 media and create a custom channel for your ogg media.
Step 3) To add a Custom Channel, perform the following steps:
- Enter in a Feed Name.
- Enter in a Feed Slug.
- Click the Add Podcast Channel button to complete this process.
If you have a Video Podcast with multiple file formats, use the default Podcast Channel for the main media that you want to appear on your blog (e.g. m4v).
Create additional channels for the remaining formats (e.g. wmv, mov, mpeg).
If you create two versions of your Podcast, a 20 minute summary and a full 2 hour episode, use the default channel for your 20 minute summary episodes and create a new custom channel for your full length episodes.
