    How much space can you have? Does this go on your storage space you currently have left?

    What is the limit to the size of mp3?

      Hey everybody,

      Couple of your asked questions regarding this app and its usage. Just to clarify:

      1) The mp3 files are loaded into your file space, so yes, they will count against one’s storage space
      2) There is a limit on the size of the mp3 file you can upload – it is 10MB
      3) Playing/viewing podcasts will count against the bandwidth usage.

      Hope this clarifies your questions,

      ~ Irina

        Is there a way to increase the size of mp3 files that can be downloaded? Is the podcast able to post larger mp3 if I “go premium.”?

        Thanks,

        Ty

          Hello Ty,
          I spoke to our support team, and they recommended that you use the Audio Module available in SiteBuilder3 sites. If you want to allow someone to download the MP3 file, you can create a text link to the file in a Paragraph, Title, or Button module that says something along the lines of “Click here to download.”

    This is great but, when a member adds a song it wont show in the recent activity feed on the profile, plus we need a profil tab along with videos and photos, and please dont call it Podcast, maybe call it Music (please) not everyone will use this as a podcast but as a way to promote thier music. So other members that visits a profile will see a music tab and see all the music they uploaded to the podcast.

    cool app. I was wondering will there ever be a poll app? So visitors on your site can vote on your poll? For example on my site i want a poll ‘what kind of game should i make next?’ and the answers the visitors could select could be ‘action, shooter, puzzle, other’

    http://c-ptsd.webs.com/ It is what it says,,,,,help from experienced people who have ptsd, depression, bi-polar, multi personality disorder, borderline personality disorder, if you have ptsd, you may have all or some of the other disorders.
    It is for trauma victims, such as rape, we know from experience, and are brave enough to shout it out loud. After of course, a long road of recovery.
    I hope to see anyone there, it’s very new, you don’t even have to join, just read the forums,,,,,,and have more tools, when you leave the site. God bless all, God bless every veteran, and especially mine, they are my heart, and I made this for them as well, you need not come in, if you fear anything, make up a fake name, who cares, as long as you don’t feel alone anymore is the tool most needed first and foremost. I know from experience, if someone wasn’t there, they do not have the knowledge to give information. Scientists are getting the exact place in the brain that is damage, even just from witnessing something horrid, God bless this one.
    Blessings to all,
    White Wolf

    Thanks for this addition! I can definitely make use of it.

    I have asked several times through the support ticket system, etc. about the blog app. Currently, you can only embed YouTube videos and images. Is there a reason why embedding pdfs and javascripts are not allowed? My daily blog posts are hampered by the fact that I can not share web 2.0 content directly on my blog and have to instead create a specific html page to link to the blog post.

      @Thomas: You are asking about the document hosting with ability to download. We currently do not have this type of app available but are hoping to bring it to our users in the future.

Stream music and offer free downloads to my members…great!! I’m working on it with the musicians to get some free downloads on the sites soon.

    This is great, have tested it, and really like it. Only thing I’m not seeing is the ability to turn off Download. I could see this being a problem for some content.

    HOWEVER… this app is really awesome, and I have plans to launch it on my site very soon.

    Hey, pretty cool. Ive used it loads for my site, but i think there should be an option to make the pod cast not appear on the first page of the pod cast app, but only show when you go to the pod cast actual page (I mean the page that only has the selected podcast on it).

    The 10mb limit is way too small, I signed up as I want to upload church sermons for those that can’t get out. But this limit renders this app USELESS
