Convert and replace help
« on: May 02, 2018, 09:52:12 am »

I submitted my podcast to spotify before realizing that all of our episodes are in m4a format rather than mp3. I've converted them all and we're going to publish hereforward with mp3.

I was about to begin the process of replacing all of my old files one by one, but before I do thought I would ask here:

1. The main reason I'm doing this is Spotify, but is it still the case they'll disapprove feeds that use m4a? Do I even need to do this?

2. Is there an easier way to batch-replace?

3. I assume I should keep my filenames, but will uploading new files with a new extension affect my reporting? How about my storage?

4. If I have to go the route of individually replacing files, is the best practice to do it from my episode posts on my website, or from Bluburry in the manage media files section?
