Podcasts created in GarageBand:  Deliver via iWeb, iTunes store, or what?

I am a professor who is beginning to podcast. What is the best way to make my GarageBand-generated podcasts available to all of my students (including PC users), both as downloadable files and streaming files?
Last semester, I sent the podcast files as AACs from GarageBand to iWeb. A few students reported problems: some were unable to subscribe to the podcast, and others were unable to play the episodes on their mp3 players.
What are the PC compatibility issues I need to consider in order to insure that all of my students can download/subscribe? They can all listen to the streaming audio, but obviously this isn't as convenient as putting the file on their mp3 player. I thought that asking them all to download iTunes would do the trick, but apparently that does not solve the problem. Does submitting the podcasts to the iTunes store provide any accessibility benefits?
Thanks in advance for your advice.

What I would do--since everyone can access the .mp3 files--is send from GarageBand to iTunes. From there convert to .mp3.
When you use iWeb to upload the file, use your media window to pull up audio>iTunes>.mp3filename and drag it in to your podcast page. Everyone should be able to access it just fine.
To convert to .mp3 in iTunes go to iTunes>Preferences>Advanced>Importing(it's a tab) and change from "AAC" to "mp3 Encoder" in the drop down menu. Then choose the file in your iTunes library and "Convert to mp3" under the Advanced menu. **Note, you will see TWO files with the same name. Check the extensions to see which is the .mp3 file. I usually delete the other to omit confusion later.
Hope it was helpful.

  • HT5225 what to do with podcasts created with GarageBand

    With Apple doing away with hosting my podcasts created with GarageBand, will I be able to submit future podcasts that will appear in iTunes?

    GarageBand wil make the actual recording of your podcast, together with chapter markers and images if you want an 'enhanced' audio podcast. It will not make the feed. It's designed to work directly with iWeb, which itself can post to any hosting service; but the file you save out of GarageBand can be used with any podcast creation program or service.
    However you need to distinguish between the different types of image. The images that GarageBand adds to the file are visible when you subscribe to the feed in iTunes as they are actually embedded in the media file. The image which appears on the Store page, and the data such as categories, subtitles and so on, is all in the feed and GarageBand does not and never has provided these. If you work with iWeb you can add those details there to produce the feed, or other methods will provide places you can enter the data.
    In your own interests, when you have a question please start a new thread rather than tacking on to an old one - this one is months old and indeed the OP's problem is not the same as yours. Questions about GarageBand itself are best asked in the GarageBand forum, and about podcasting in the Producing Podcast forum - you're in the iCloud forum and iCloud has nothing to do with this as it does not offfer website hosting.

    I upload a podcast each week using Podcast Maker. When I search the iTunes Store to determine if the most recent one is listed all the podcasts are in random order. This week's is #14; last week's is #1. Any ideas how to correct this? The odd thing is that when you try to subscribe to the podcasts, they are listed in the proper order.

    Many thanks.
    With those symptoms, I'd try the following document:

  • HT1819 I noticed that some of my podcast are missing from the iTunes store. What is the cause of that?

    I noticed that some of my podcast are missing from the iTunes store. What is the cause of that?

    That suggests that the tracks are damaged.
    If your country's iTunes Store allows you to redownload purchased tracks, I'd delete your current copies of the dodgy tracks and try redownloading fresh copies. For instructions, see the following document:
    Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store
    Otherwise, I'd report the problem to the iTunes Store.
    Log in to the Store. Click on "Account" in your Quick Links. When you're in your Account information screen, go down to Purchase History and click "See all".
    Find the items that are not playing properly. If you can't see "Report a Problem" next to the items, click the "Report a problem" button. Now click the "Report a Problem" links next to the items.

  • The new U2 album shows purchased via the itunes store on my windows computer, but doesn't appear in my library

    the new U2 album shows purchased via the itunes store on my windows computer, but doesn't appear in my library

    On your Windows computer, go to the iTunes Store. On the right column of the iTunes Store under QUICK LINKS, you'll see an option called Purchased. Click on that and you'll see all items that are tied to your iTunes Store account. You should see the U2 album there and you can download it from the cloud. You'll now have a copy stored on your Windows computer.

    You haven't opened an account with that Apple ID in iTunes. Open iTunes and log in. A dialog will appear in which you need to enter your Apple ID and/or password. Below it you should see a link for creating a new account. Click on that link to get started.

  • HT5457 When Open passbook in my iPhone 4S and tapped on the App Store it says cannot connect to apple iTunes Store. What am I doing wrong?

    I updated my iPhone 4S with the new iOs 6. It was successfully installed, but when I open passbook app and tapped App Store I get this message saying cannot connect to apple iTunes Store . What did I do wrong?

    Try connecting to your Mac or PC and using iTunes to sync your iPhone. Disconnect your iPhone after syncing, make sure in Settings>iTunes&AppStore you have your Apple ID and password entered, and launch App Store and sign in. It should work now, but do not sign out from App Store. There seems to be a bug that prevents us from signing in again after signing out.

    Saw this on another post.
    Applecare Senior Advisor Txx Bxxx (I have his contact info in an email he just sent) just confirmed with me that the problem people are having with the App Store not loading is an apple issue with there servers, ITS NOT YOUR IPAD so don't go restoring it!   It's not happening to everyone however but they are looking into it, its really hit or miss.

    Try this first - Reset the iPad by holding down on the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider - let go of the buttons.
    This works for some users. Not sure why.
    Go to Settings>General>Date and Time> Set Automatically>Off. Set the date ahead by about a year.Then see if you can connect to the store.

    You can try requesting that it be added to the US store, but ultimately it's the record company that will have to grant Apple a license to sell it there : http://www.apple.com/feedback/itunes.html
    Is it available on any other music purchase download sites that you have access to ?
