well I sertainly wouldn't want to run over 128kb mp3.
What I plan to do well should I say I think should be done as have all files in wav that way we can edit them as we see fit. And as long as you put something on them when uploading even if its for editing you can probably encode in a crappy format like 8kb mp3, decode in wav and whatever who knows I don't run this really right now we need to figure this all out eventually.
Uploading waves for work is just a bit to big.

The mp3 format for quality and compression balance (at least as
far as I can tell) is 128kbps, stereo. Anything under that and your loosing quality. Anything over is starting to get redundant.

Hi,

I'd like to make two points with regards podcasting.

The easier one is I looked up podaudyssey.org and that domain is
available as of now. It's $11.20 a year less for multiple years at the
place I'm looking. I've also with my new server have the ability to
handle dns services. I'm not saying that we would have to go with
that, but it was mentioned and I thought for informative purposes I'd
look up if it was available, also i'm not sure if that's the absolute
cheapest cheapest, but that price isn't bad.

Point 2 has more to do with the specific audio format to use. Most
podcasts are encoded as mp3's although some will use .ogg files. Both
ogg and mp3 are what's called Lossy compression methods, that means in
both situations, working on and resaving the file you'll loose audio
quality. So for example if I make a file and save it as an mp3. Then
open it a bunch of times, make edits and save, I'm going to get a
pretty crappy sounding file. Think of the old tapes, anyone copied a
tape repeatedly the quality went down as that tape was copied, same
concept. To deal with this I would recommend how a friend tought it to
me, record in wave so you get the maximum audio quality, then save as
a .flac file, that's a lostless compression, which means I can edit it
50 times and never loose quality. Flac files also are one quarter the
size of waves. When all edits and editions such as music are done to
the flac and it's ready, the last thing should be to save it as the
mp3 and it's that mp3 that makes up the podcast. I hope that made
sense. Also, it might not be a bad idea to standardize on the type of
mp3, mono or stereo, bitrate and sample rate, the higher of which the
larger the files.

Just some information and food for thought.
Dave.

Hi tom.
As someone who uses ss max that's a good plan, and a nice way of minimizing
need for donations to keep the archive up. Particularly as now with a max
account you can upload files of up to 500 mb, which should be more than long
enough for a podcast.

Beware the grue!

Dark.

Hi Dark,

I've been thinking about those issues. I'm pretty sure I can take care
of those issues if needed.

As far as submitting content if I were the editor of the show I could
take submissions via Dropbox, Sendspace, or Rapidshare, edit the
submissions, and put them into an hour long show on  a monthly or
quarterly basis then put them on the host site.

As far as archiving goes my own web space isn't quite up to holding
several shows, but I could use a Sendspace Max account with 100 GB of
space to store the show's archives.  That would work out for everyone
as there would be lots of space for archives and I would get Sendspace
Max points for every archive downloaded helping to contribute to the
financial needs of the podcast. Then, all we would need is a place to
put up the podccasts pages and news. Any thoughts?

Cheers!

I like that idea myself, sinse then it'd be far easier to submit stuff.

blind cool tech just doesn't seem as reliable as it used to, ---- they
never
in fact posted my smugglers 3 review at all when I sent it and indeed
some
of my older game reviews have disappeared too (I'll stick them on
sendspace,
but stil it's irritating).

Thus maybe it's time for something game specific, and the main menue
format
works well.

My only concerns are firstly, how difficult this will be for the hoster
to
commit to posting every three months etc, sinse it'd not be good if the
pod
cast started and then stopped, and secondly whether the older episodes
can
be perminantly archived somewhere so that they are always available.

Provided these things are dealt with I think it could be a good thing
indeed
and may even contribute something myself if I can.

Beware the grue!

Dark.

Hi,

I like that. A name like Paudyssey would make sense. I know there are
sites like Paudio books. Which does audio books vial podcasts. This
would fit in with the entire podcasting theme.

How I see the show format would be something like main menu's setup.
You have a host who gives the news, and then you would have game
reviews, demonstrations, etc done by the community itself. Just like
Main Menu's format. Its one that works out well for them, and would
probably work for us as well.

Cheers!

Hi Shaun

  I was actually thinking the name Podessey would be rather appropriate
for
a project like this.
  I'm guessing we'd leave it open for contributions from everyone in

community.
