Podango Podcasters Last Hail Mary

I hate using football terms but Podango podcasters have one last chance to save their show from complete and utter demis.

Podango Podcasters: If you have a copy of your RSS Feed and media, we will setup an FTP account for you to upload your media to host with us.

Our offer of free 30 days of hosting remains even though we cannot fully migrate you directly from Podango.com.

Send email to cio@rawvoice.com if you are willing to up your media and receive 30 days of free hosting.

Podango Pulls the Plug

In a not so surprising move, considering what we have learned over the past five days, Podango has shut down their podcasting services. Unfortunately, we are no longer able to transition anymore podcasters from Podango.

Their website is offline and media files are no longer available for download. The only service Podango is offering their customers at this point is feed redirection. Sadly, this means nothing if the podcaster didn’t move their feed before the beginning of the year.

Beyond shocking is that this company would give 5 days notice to its customers during the holidays, arguably the busiest time of the year for all of us, to move their podcasts. To migrate a show properly, 3-4 weeks are needed to let your audience know of the changes and for services such as iTunes to propagate the new feed URLs. They’ve effectively destroyed a large number of podcasts simply by not providing their customers enough time.

I will have more commentary on this later. At the moment I am highly disappointed in what has transpired, not only with the sudden service shut down but with email correspondence we shared with Podango.

Hey, yeah, we heard. The online video and audio network Podango might be done before the end of this year. The loss of Podango’s services and innovative capabilities are a real blow to our tight-knit new media community and the team at Blubrry honors the accomplishments and commitment of Podango since it’s inception in 2006.

Podango President Douglas Smith has encouraged podcasters to immediately seek new hosting services to ensure they are not negatively impacted by the loss of Podango. We at Blubrry respect that immensely and have tools in place to automate the transfer process should you choose to host your media at blubrry.com.

Actually, we’ve made it not only easy, but free. In addition to offering Podango podcasters an automated process to transfer files from Podango to the Blubrry network, we are giving Podango podcasters 30 days of free hosting. This will give you time to continue your show while you consider your hosting options. You are under no obligation to continue hosting with Blubrry: during the 30 day period you can move your shows to another provider at any time. Sure, we hope you’ll continue hosting with Blubrry, but the immediate need is to keep your podcasts online, uninterrupted.

Here are the instructions to move your show and media files to the Blubrry network

Update: Podango RSS feeds have become unstable we are now not recommending people move to feedburner until after the feed has been imported into Blubrry. We also recommend saving a copy of your RSS feed to your hard drive as a backup.

1st Create an account on blubrry, if you have not done so yet.

2nd Add your podcast to Blubrry by submitting your feed on our add podcast page: www.blubrry.com/addpodcast.php Note: You are not purchasing hosting yet, please ignore the message at the top of the page.

3rd Once your podcast is submitted and all of your posts have been imported, go to the manage account page by clicking the ‘manage account’ link found at the top right corner. Navigate to the ‘Content’ page and then click the link titled “Free Hosting for 30 days”. Fill out the form, select the plan you would like after your 30 day trial is over, and then click ‘Sign Up’.

4th Be patient! We will start migrating your data as soon as possible. Migration times vary depending on the size and number of files queued. Please give us a couple of hours to move your media.

5th (Optional and recommend) You can setup a personal domain that will point to your custom home page. This will allow your show to reside at yourdomain.com

Podango Podcasters, while we are sad to see Podango shut down, we have tried to make this switch as painless as possible for you. Circumstances require you do the minimum of Steps 1–3 immediately to ensure your media remains on-line after December 31, 2008.

The Blubrry team is made up of Podcasters and we understand the challenges you are facing in this stressful time. You are under no obligation to host with us beyond the 30 days we are offering free. We simply wanted to you an opportunity to move your content before time runs out.

We look forward to your feedback
