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

I tried installing Jesus on my Scientific Method and I got a Blue Screen of Eternal Damnation.

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...
