We've been using Podcast Generator since it's early days and with only one exception due to hosting issue we have never had any problems other than operator error. It's been and is strong and robust and the best podcast server around. I would and do suggest it regularly to all my fellow webmasters.
I had some problems with the page not loading properly in the beginning. But I wrote the free support and got a direct answer and solution to the problem within less than half an hour. Incredible!!! I really hope the creaters of Podcastgen also gives themselves time of to sleep and eat ;-) The design is a bit plain. But for the people that know a bit about code, it's not a big task to optimize the design. I myself is a beginner but changed the design to one I'm really proud of :-) It is really a shame that you can't upload pictures for every podcast so they appear on the frontpage. That was a really nice design-feature in the older version. Thanks a lot for developing the site. I will definitely donate! All the best! Louise
We have used Podcase Generator for over three years to post and offer our audio for free through our church website. When we have run into anything that we are unable to understand to help the flow of our audio uploading or playing we have emailed their support, Alberto, and he is endlessly amazing to offer us help and patience through his expertise. This is a great product and we cannot imagine not using it or having it as part of our ministry to reach out to others. Thank you Alberto and Podcast Generator. We really appreciate your support and help and of course the software you share with the world so we can share what we do with the world. :-)
I used it for my first podcast application, really easy to set up and use. Sadly, it requires all files to be on the same host, and hosted diskspace is expensive. I had to find another solution that let's me link to files remotely (Amazon S3 in my case). I would come back to Podcastgen if they add this feature, hence the not quite five stars.
very good project, thanks!
