What can a media content website do for you?

August 20, 2009 | Comments Off on What can a media content website do for you?

 

While we have websites that manage contents like blogs and posts etc., there are also websites that manage content that is media related. If you are an artist or a musician you will find a website like this a very useful tool to help promote your work.

What does a website like this do?
Most media content websites are content management systems that can be used with ease to publish content that is media related onto the worldwide web. Some of these websites will even generate a RSS feeds that can be used for Podcasting. All that you need to do is upload your files (video or audio) and add your links and notes. The site will do the rest. There are a lot of websites like these, you can research them and decide on which one works the best for you.

Ease of use
Media content websites make it easy to media blog. The ease of use is what the most important feature is.  Assuming that you have the copyright for the file that you are going to upload, the media file can be uploaded via a web browser or an FTP client. Once you have uploaded the media content you can add information to it like short messages, a title, hyperlinks that are related to your post etc. You can also control the time that you publish the post. However you must be aware that most of these websites that allow you to post media are often simple websites. If you are looking to do things that are more complicated you should choose your content management system accordingly.

Create exclusive templates
Most media content websites and content management systems can be fully customised to suit your individual preference. If you have some sort of web designing experience and knowledge you can create your own template with the help of the programming tools on the websites. You might even find that some offer you existing templates that you can modify to your tastes and needs.

Podcasting feed publishing
A lot of the media content websites will create valid feeds for Podcasting as soon as you upload your media file. This is a very important feature as it will enable visitors to listen to your posts with the help of podcasting clients. As is the case with many of the websites all visitors have to do is select the hyperlink containing the podcast feed and then copy the URL and paste it into their podcatcher. Once this is done, their default media player will open and play the file. A podcatcher also checks for new programmes and therefore your visitor has indirectly subscribed to your channel.

Using combination systems
If you find that one content management system for your media content is not giving you all the features that you require there is good news. There is additional software in the market that allows you to use a combination of WordPress, Geeklog, Serendipity, Drupal, Joomla or Mambo with the media blog of your choice. This can help with processes like organising, uploading and tagging media files.
