Cheers. I've been meaning to spend some time with funkwhale. I love the idea of it but I had never thought of it in a podcasting context
Thanks. I saw that among the options on WordPress. I wish I had known it was libre software. WordPress has no way to filter by licence.
@Austin this is Jinja and Bash helt together by duck tape, shoe string and magic dust. Works for me!
@Austin you can get a VPS for literally $5 a month you can't afford that? you'll have a hard time using server-side FOSS (well, anything server-side really) if you can't rent use of a virtual server. you could run a server from a Raspberry Pi or something but you'd need to use one of those tricky dynamic DNS services unless you have a static IP.
@Austin Vultr is super cheap. Digital Ocean has a $5 option too. So does EC2 and in fact if you sign up to AWS you can use a basic EC2 VPS for free for a year. No strings.
Hopefully helpful note about monetization:
https://podcastindex.org/ protocol defines (apart from other things) a way to get voluntarily paid for broadcasting in a decentralized way.
This has been implemented in the Bitcoin world and so users are directly streaming money to the podcasters (essentially voluntarily pay per second)
This has been implemented in couple of apps, e.g. https://www.reddit.com/r/lightningnetwork/comments/mbg81b/podcasts_on_breez_streaming_sats_for_streaming/
Cheers. That's very interesting. I'd love to something like that take off. Got some reading to do.
@Austin I used Wordpress (free) with the blubrry plugin (free) for my podcast (amoletters.com) when it was being broadcast to generate RSS.
OK. Thanks for that tip. I've actually sorted my podcast hosting woes but now I just need to know everything about the Church of the SubGenius!
@Austin but of course I speak of the slack of “Bob”. Not even Slackware, although named for same. There is software called Slack, some like, others no.
The SubGenius media empire is vast...“Book of the SubGenius” and “Pamphlet Number One: The World Ends Tomorrow and You May Die!” for written details... “Arise!” and “J. R. “Bob” Dobbs and the Church of the SubGenius” for video... “The Hour of Slack” for audio...
