The new process is easy, said Todd Cochrane, CEO of RawVoice, Blubrry’s parent company. “It removes the hassle of migrating media,” he said. “It used to be difficult to migrate, but this new tool makes it simple and no-hassle.”
Podcasters aiming to migrate their shows to Blubrry Podcast Hosting service can do so in a simple, three-step process:
1. Request migration
2. Wait for migration to complete
3. Update the site with with just one click
By design, the system migrates each file linearly; this is optimal for podcasters who are currently hosting their media on their website or with a service that cannot serve multiple files at a time. Depending on the source, the process could take a few minutes to a few hours. Once completed, the website and podcast can be updated to the new media URLs with just one click, he said.
“This is something folks have asked for as part of our Blubrry support services,” Cochrane said. “It was a priority for our team and we’re confident our PowerPress users will find it to their liking.
As of this release, Blubrry has migrated more than 200 shows, consisting of over 20,000 audio and video files. “Now that we’ve made it easy, we’re seeing an explosion of migrations to our podcasting hosting service” Cochrane said. “It’s just one more step in the podcasting evolution.
“We are always listening; we’ll always consider requests from our fellow podcasters and Blubrry family.”
