    How to Set up a Podcast in a few minutes for free


    In this article, I will show you how to set up a podcast in a few minutes for free. The final solution includes a blog with a feed from which your listener's can directly access your audio and video files, all hosted on free services of your choice. Although I will suggest different solutions, I will focus on Blogger.com for the blog, Feedburner for the feed, and Archive.org for file hosting.
    This article will also point at affordable file hosting solutions for professional podcasters whose requirements are more demanding than what free services can provide.


    #1: Set Up a Blog

    There are plenty of great tutorials how to create a blog, also, you can find here, on this blog, a lot of interesting things, from template to all possible widgets for blogging.

    #2: You need just a few simple codes and that's all.

    HTML5 Audio - How It Works

    <audio controls>
      <source src="NO - FILE.ogg" type="audio/ogg">
      <source src="http://defpenradio.com/wp-content/2011/08/Jessie-J-Domino-www.LoMasRankiaO.com_.mp3" type="audio/mpeg">
    Your browser does not support the audio element.
    </audio>
    Click to play


    The control attribute adds audio controls, like play, pause, and volume.
     You should also insert text content between the <audio> and </audio>  tags for browsers that do not support the <audio> element.

    The <audio> element allows multiple <source> elements. <source> elements can link to different audio files. The browser will use the first recognized format.

    Note: Don't post this line if you don't use that file, in this case ogg.
    <source src="NO - FILE.ogg" type="audio/ogg">
