Your Media Library

Media Library is the place where you can upload and manage different types of media, such as Audio, Video and Photos.
Media Library | Podomatic
Media types are identified by the file extension. 
To post media in your podcast, a file extension is required. Files that are supported for posting are called "publishable". Those that are not publishable are displayed in red in your media library. PodOmatic supports many different types of media formats. 

For posted episodes, however, PodOmatic converts to the most widely accepted formats:
Download Video: MPEG-4
Audio: MP3

Video Note: We HIGHLY recommend converting videos to 360p. This drastically reduces the size of the file, making playback and download much easier and faster for your fans. Links to your highest quality video can be added to your episode description. 

Audio files
Supported audio file types: m4a, mp3, mp4

Video files
Supported video file types: mp4, m4v, wmv, mov, mpeg, mpg, 3gp

Photo files
Supported photo file types: jpg, png, bmp

Not publishable section
PodOmatic determines if an audio/video/photo media file can be published using the following guidelines:
  1.  Does it have a file extension? If not, we cannot determine the file type. 
  2.  Is the file over 350MB? If so, it's too big to post. 
  3.  Does the file have one of these extensions: .vob .ram .rm .aup .flv .cda .itl .wpl .m3u .pmf .mht .asf .pict .mswmm? If so, its not a supported format. 
  4. Can the file be opened, and its duration read? If not, we cannot convert to the proper format, because the file cannot be opened by our conversion software. 
Note that if your file cannot be published, the reason why is given in the media library. Non-audio/video files can be published, but they cannot be played and will require notifying your audience of what you're providing them.
