How can I clip sections from podcasts?
« on: 20/05/2009 03:24:25 »
Is there a way I can edit podcasts so I can supply just the section of interest instead of having to forward through the whole show?

thanks.

You can do that with Audacity

In Audacity it is possible to play mp3 format recordings, but to create (encode) mp3 it is necessary to install a separate mp3 encoder … http://audacity.sourceforge.net/help/faq?s=install&item=lame-mp3

[The encoder is not included with Audacity to avoid copyright infringement]

If it's our podcasts, you can download individual components of any show that we have transcribed - if you look at an interview/news item etc, on the left hand side of the screen there is a speaker icon, and under that it says "[...or download mp3]".  Hitting that just downloads the audio for that particular item.

However, I think we're the only podcast to offer this, so with others Audacity would be the best route.

Indeed; another way to send people to the desired segment, assuming it's a Naked Scientist podcast, is to do exactly as Ben suggests but just send someone the URL (by copy shortcut, or copy link text (depending on the browser) - then they can listen directly with one click and no need to email big audio files.

Again, if it's not a Naked Scientist podcast then you're out of luck...but then who needs to listen to a podcast that's not a naked scientist podcast ;)

well, that's true.. but isn't it nice to confirm stories and idea with lesser podcasts?

thanks for the help and TNS podcasts that provide just the segment is très clever...
