Creating a Podcast from your BoxCast past broadcasts is super simple, and a great way to reach your audience in places they are already hanging out!

Configuring Your Podcast Channel

Podcasting is enabled on a per-channel basis. To enable a channel for podcasting, follow these steps below.

Click on Channels and select an already existing channel or create a new channel.

Click on Edit Channel Settings.

Select the Podcasting tab at the top of the screen and click on Enable Audio Podcast or Enable Video Podcast.

Fill out all of the relevant information in the boxes that appear after clicking to enable the podcast, then click Save Changes. Make sure to fill out all of the relevant information or your podcast might not be accepted by services like Apple.

  • Upload compliant, podcast-specific artwork by selecting a square, 1400x1400—3000x3000, 72dpi RGB JPEG or PNG for a Preview Image on the Podcast tab of your channel configuration.

  • Choose a unique podcast program title for your Channel Name (check podcast stores to make sure your program title is unique).

  • Choose a podcast category from the Category field on the Podcast tab of your BoxCast channel configuration

  • Configure a valid owner contact using the Owner Name and Owner Email fields on the Podcast tab of your BoxCast channel configuration

  • Add at least one broadcast with a recording to the podcast-enabled channel.

Click on Embed under the Watch section of the channel.

Click on Other Integrations, then RSS, MRSS or JSON feed. Choose your channel, then the type of feed you want- likely the MRSS- either audio or video, depending on your podcast type.

If you don't see the RSS, MRSS or JSON feed in your account, contact your client manager at success@boxcast.com so they can help get you set up.
