Saving time with LoudBlog
I have been planning to do some sort of radio show for my website Electronic Music World for quite a while. One of my plans was to write a module for WebKoffer which handled this. But too little time and a bit of laziness always held me back. Yesterday, Chris Sisk pointed me towards LoudBlog, an open source PHP/MySQL weblog/CMS package that is meant especially for PodCasts (or AudioFeeds, if you don't want to use the Apple term too much). This sounded like a good solution, especially since you can also link to third party sites that hold mp3's, something that is quite useful in saving diskspace, especially with services like Archive.org and Scene.org. And yes, I am quite impressed with LoudBlog. It's easy to install, and quite easy to manage your AudioFeed. Adding new files/posts is simple, and altering the layout to fit in with the rest of your site is also quite easy with the (XSLT-based?) template system. So yeah, I'm quite happy with it. Check it out at the Electronic Music World Radio.
