Sidepodcast - All for F1 and F1 for all

Responding to your requests - Sharing our Sidepodcast TV video content the easy way

Published by Mr. C

As you may have noticed, we released a new video last weekend, and via the comments we received a couple of requests to enable better sharing of said new content.

We've become pretty adept at distributing audio with F1Minute recently, so we have a pretty good idea of how to go about it, but we've been neglecting Sidepodcast on that front.

If you've been following the comments, you'll know that Lou suggested that F1 Rewind would make a fine Facebook application, while Shaun asked if there was a simple way of embedding the videos into his site.

We're always keen to receive input and feedback, and it seems only fair that when people make cool suggestions we act upon them, and we've done just that.

We have a shiny new Sidepodcast TV Facebook application ready and waiting to be added to your profile. We threw together a version during the weekend, and polished it up today. New episodes are added the moment we release them, so you're always up-to-date with the latest content.

For anyone still living outside the walled garden we've added embed codes to the information beneath each video on this site. The codes work just as you'd expect and allow you to copy a single episode onto another web page. Shaun has an example on his blog if you'd like to see it in action.

Finally, we've added one more piece to the puzzle, and that's the ability to add an entire playlist to another site. In short this means that you only have to copy the video player once, and you'll be sure that new content will appear as and when it's available (we're hoping weekly). If you have a blog with space to spare, stop by our video sharing page and check out the details.

There's one last thing to add. It's always been possible to embed episodes of Sidepodcast TV, using sites such as YouTube and Dailymotion. We've been uploading shows to them since the day we started and we're not going to stop now. We're simply offering additional options for anyone who wants them.

Many thanks to everyone for their suggestions and if you have any more requests / ideas for things we should be doing, please let us know via the usual methods.
