We are glad to announce a new version video player is available in Podbean.com. Improved from the old version player which only supports flv video format, the new video player supports flv and H.264 based mp4, m4v, mov, avi videos. This makes it possible that the videos can be shown quickly in the video player after being published. Podbean.com has stopped converting user videos. So there will be no more waiting for videos to be converted to flv.
To make the video compatible with iTunes, we recommend videos to be encoded with H.264 based mp4 or m4v format.

Think podcasting is just for personal sites or news ventures? Think again! More and more Podbean clients are finding new ways to integrate the Podbean Podcasting System into the educational arena and the results are stunning!
Most recently, Adam Watson's English class at South Oldham High School decided to broadcast their literary discussion using podcasting services from Podbean. 'Dragon Booktalk' became an instant hit among parents, teachers and students alike. The podcast has since receive national recognition and the students agree that the podcasting element drastically enhances the learning experience.
"It's hands-on," said Alexa Laviena in a recent interview. "You're not just reading to read. You get through the reading because you want to be able to know what to say and do when you do your recording. That's pretty cool even for people who don't like reading."
But the creativity doesn't stop there.
