I wanted to try this to say hello to everyone, but i am wondering if it would work as it stands right now. I have no High speed Internet

The only provider here in Cape Cod is extremely expensive...

Should i attempt it? or skip it until i can get out faster?


Thanks, DG

You should be fine--it'd probably be slower than molasses uploading it, so plan accordingly. I wouldn't see any reason you wouldn't be able to though (and someone please correct me if I'm wrong...)

dgtempe,

On a dialup connection a 3-4Mb mp3 (podcast) will take approx. 12-17 mins to upload. Not sure if ATS has a timeout set for the upload script though. Maybe SO or someone can shed some light on that part.

I'll be sitting here looking at the ketchup bottle singing "Anticipation" while waiting for your podcast upload.

Connection speed has nothing to do with the "creation" of a podcast... it's just an MP3 file.

But it will determine how long it takes to upload your finished podcast. Focus on a short (under 4 minute) program with tight Mp3 compression.

I have a VERY high speed network I normally use, however on Friday night when I uploaded my FIRST ever podcast our network admin was tinkering with said high speed.

This forced me to use our back up which happens to be a VERY slow dial-up.

I was able to upload my 1 minute podacst that was 983k in size in about 9 minutes.

It was slow but it did work. Hope that helps you.

Short and sweet, baby, short and sweet.


Oh, and low quality too, but that doesn't sound as nice. (pun only partially intended)

I have the recording made but i cant find where Lame is located, and it tells me its zipped. I thought i unzipped it...


I am very frustrated now at my stupidity.


Yes, MrWuppy, you said to write it down...


Still trying

Go to the Audacity site and click on Download Audacity. There you will see LAME. Download it again. It shouldn't be zipped.

If you do it right, you don't have to interface with LAME at all. Audacity calls on it, to make your file into an mp3, but you don't have to do anything with it. You don't have to find LAME.

One more glitch: Its all downloaded, its only about 20 seconds long, and ATS podcast page tells me, after 3 minutes, that my file is not supported.

Has anyone out there had this problem?

I have the feeling its something very minor, but there's a little problem.


Do i have to set something on ATS? codes? Anything?

I'm sorry for all the trouble, specially to Benevolent Heretic
who has been with me throuout this ordeal.

Could my file be too small? I set Audacity to 64, its trying to work, but cant put it thru to ATS.

Thank you for your help.

one possibility...be sure the program is saving the file as an mp3 and not .mpeg, .mpg, etc.

Seems I recall a similar post regarding the "file not supported" response and that was the reason.

Please let us know!?
