Embedding Enhanced Garageband Podcasts

WOOHOO!

It’s taken a few days of experimenting and playing around and ALMOST getting it right to consult the wonderful twitterverse and be sent this link from dswaters – Music Is Not For Insects for embedding enhanced garageband podcasts into edublogs.

I was so close! My final attempt was changing the file extension to .mp4 but as I learnt above it should be changed to .m4v in order to upload to edublogs.

So in a quick nutshell…

Save your garageband to disk (to your desktop) as an aac file.

Once it’s on the desktop change the file extension by clicking on the name twice slowly – change it from .mp4 to .m4v

Go to edublogs editor and write your post in edublogs – go to the upload section, select your video, click upload then click send to editor.

It will come up looking like a link while you are editing:

Movie Link

But once you click publish it will turn into this (Press the play once):

Trial Enhanced Podcast

Thanks to Allanah, Dswaters, Room 13 2007 and the wonderful twitterverse for helping with this one! 🙂
