AutoPod is an online service for the automatic generation of on demand content based on an incoming radio stream. It can be used for uploading and managing podcasts, automating content distribution and as a supplement to any existing station ROT (record of transmission) / Logging.
Although AutoPod is a fully fledged podcast management system, it has been designed with Radio Stations in mind, using a hierarchy that should feel familiar to most and allow for simple mapping of existing content to new listener experiences.
Who is AutoPod For? #
– AutoPod is primarily targeted towards radio stations and online audio providers
– Assumes that you have an existing online stream (does not need to be online 24/7 though)
– Radio Stations looking for their own On Demand or Listen Again service
– Stations looking to expand to new online platforms
– Stations looking to allow presenters to easily download a copy of their own show
– Technical teams / station admin who currently have a heavy workload exporting content for presenters
How does it work? #
Our cloud based system captures a recording of your existing online feed (or any that you provide to us) and use the broadcast schedule to seperate the output into individual episodes. Once the schedule has been added this process is ‘set and forget’.
We provide Embeddable HTML Widgets and RSS feeds for all Shows & Groups that are compatible with all leading podcast applications and services. You can position your content wherever your listeners are.
Once you have setup the initial embeds / schedule etc. AutoPod does the heavy lifting for you.
Signing Up for A Trial #
We give everyone who wishes to use AutoPod an initial trial period to evaluate the service and get things setup and working correctly. Before we can setup the trial for you though there are a few things we need to know. (You can sign up for a trial of AutoPod [here](https://hippynet.co.uk/autopod))

AutoPod is a content hosting and management platform. It is your responsibility to ensure that you are following local rules and regulations regarding the licensing of online content. We are not responsible for the contents of any given episode and do not take ownership of any content passed through our systems. UK radio stations should be covered with existing online streaming licenses but it is worth double checking this on the PRS/PPL website.
