Summary – Media Hub allows UNL web developers to create Podcasts and/or Vodcasts without editing XML, easily embed a flash player on their websites, and allow multiple users to manage the content on those feeds. To get started, log in at http://www1.unl.edu/mediahub/manager/ with your my.UNL Username and Password and add your media.
Users can subscribe to the podcast feed and each piece of media has an individual page where UNL Faculty/Staff and Students can submit comments on the video. Additionally, developers and end-users can copy and paste the embed code so a video can easily be embedded on their own sites.
Once a feed is in the system, if you’d like it added to our iTunes U site just let me know.
Video: please use h264 encoding at 640×480 for standard definition and 640×360 for high definition.
Audio: use mp3 format for files under 32MB. More information is available in the wiki page on podcasting.
Thanks to Seth Meranda in University Communications and Todd Jensen, Tim Steiner, and Micah Sutton in the New Media Center.
