Tomorrow night, one of our activities at the monthly Drupal Atlanta meeting will be a hands-on workshop where you can learn how to podcast with Drupal. I'll give a quick presentation, and then we'll dive into some hands-on training.
Drupal core contains everything you need to post podcasts without any third-party modules, so just come with a working Drupal 5 installation if you'd like to participate.
The method I'll teach uses the stripped-down CCK (Content Construction Kit) that's built into Drupal 5 along with the core Upload module. It's not the only way to podcast with Drupal, but I think for most purposes it's the best way. During the opening presentation, we'll briefly discuss the pros and cons of using this method versus other methods (like using the Audio and/or Video modules).
We may play with SWF Tools if there's time to show you how you can add Flash players to enhance the user experience. The module is currently broken but expected to be fixed soon, and in the very near future will be the best and easiest way to add Flash players to your podcast. If time permits, we can also discuss how to add Flash players using PHPTemplate.
The meeting is August 21 at 7 p.m. in 5 Seasons Brewing in Alpharetta, GA, which is located at 3655 Old Milton Parkway, about 1 mile east of hwy 400 (exit 10). Click here for a map.
