Cornelius Fichtner: In this episode, I show you how to listen to and watch our audio and video episodes.
Hello and welcome back to this special episode of The Project Management Podcast™ at www.pm-podcast.com in which we will look at how to listen to and watch both our audio and video episodes. I’m Cornelius Fichtner. Thank you so much for joining me today.
Cornelius Fichtner: So, what is going on? I am recording more and more video episodes. And sometimes, I do them as a live stream. Sometimes, I use online meeting tools. These episodes are recorded as videos, but they are not produced and made available to you in two formats. Obviously, one format is the video just as it was recorded. But I also create an audio-only version. And that is an MP3 file with just the audio, just the conversation between me and my guest. And so my big question was well, what do I do? Do I give you the video? Do I give you the audio? Do I give you both? Well, here we go!
As you can see on the left, 84% of you out of 232 respondents said: ‘We want the audio.’ But on the right, sizeable number said: ‘Well, we want the video, 52%.’ Yes, that adds up to more than 100%. But you could check multiple boxes. So it goes over 100% obviously.
So because of this result, here is what I have decided to do. The audio-only of the Project Management Podcast™ will be published for automatic download and the video is available for one-click streaming. So what exactly does that mean? Well, in order to subscribe to the Project Management Podcast™ on your phone and on your tablet, you have to install an app on your phone, on your tablet, and that app in the future will automatically download the audio-only to the app. So you know: ‘Ah, a new episode is available.’
If that episode happens to be also a video episode then in the app, there will be a link that you can click, one click, and it will start streaming the video for you. And if that doesn’t work in your particular app then you can always go back to the website as a fail-safe and stream the video straight from the site. So let me show you how this works in the apps.
I have two screenshots here from Android Podcast on the left. You have Podcast Addict, and on the right, you have Pocket Casts. And if you look where those arrows are pointing, you can see that it says “Play video episode.” That is a clickable link and if in either of those two apps, you click on that link then the player will start and it will stream the video and play the video for you. So it’s right there literally at your fingertip.
Here is what this looks like on Apple Podcasts, that is the official podcast app from Apple. This is a screenshot here from my iPad. I’ll make this bigger so you can see this a little bit better and you can see the “Play video episode” link is right there in Apple Podcast as well. You just tap on it and it will play the video episode.
But unfortunately, not all apps work the same. Some apps in this case here, it is called “Podcast Go” removes the link. So there will just be text. So make this bigger. You can see here. It still says “Play video episode” there but it’s not clickable. It’s just pure link. So what do you do? Well, in a situation like this, you can now go to the Project Management Podcast™ website at www.pm-podcast.com. You can find the appropriate episode and then you can stream it right from here.
Let me show you how this works. You bring this up. This is Episode 463 and you can see here. We have this Play this video episode on the link. But obviously, all the videos are also right here. So it has ‘press the video’ button here or here. And it will start streaming straight from the website.
Yeah, and that’s it! To repeat, in your Podcast app, you will always get the audio-only episode. We provide the link in the app so you can stream it from right within the app. But if all fails then you can also go to the website and stream it from there. We’re starting this right now. We’re going to go back to through the previous episodes where we have video and audio available. We’re going to combine them in the format that you have seen here and going forward, more and more of our video episodes will be available in exactly this fashion.
Cornelius Fichtner: Yeah! And that’s it for today! Thank you very much for joining me and of course, as always, until next time.
