This is the super sized package for those producers who need to room to hold a massive, growing archive of content.

$75 per month
Monthly Storage is the amount you can upload in any 30 day window. For example A 250 MB account means you get a quota of 250 MB per 30 day period. So in any 30 day period you can upload up to 250 MB of files. Once a file is over 30 days old – it automatically moves into “Archive” – which just means it no longer counts against your upload quota.The “Archived” file continues to download as before and the URL remains the same – nothing changes other than you have back that amount of space to upload new files into.
This is the technical description of “getting your show in the iTunes podcast store”. One of the reasons we started liberated syndication is because 95% of the world didn’t know what the heck an RSS feed is. Now 6 years later, about 90% of the world doesn’t know what an RSS feed is. The good news is that with libsyn- you don’t have to. Simply fill out a few fields and we’ll provide the URL that you need when registering your show with podcast aggregators like iTunes. You can customize the way the show is represented at any time through the libsyn interface- including the artwork, description, and categorization of the show.
For any new media venture to grow and reach out to the largest audience possible, it needs to embrace the web. And that includes podcasts. We have developed a HTML5 player which can be configured and customized for audio and video podcasts, playback in a variety of quality levels, and even degrades gracefully to work on the iPhone and iPad. When you embed the player on your website, enhanced playback statistics are tracked along w/ the standard podcast download numbers.
Whether you are starting a brand new show or simply need a clean, simple webpage to direct traffic to where people can quickly watch, listen, and share your podcast- the libsyn podcast pages fits the bill. Customization is quick and easy and a professional looking, attractive website is ready to support the growth of your show. You can register a domain name and point it at libsyn to customize the URL of your webpage and RSS feed.
