Import an existing podcast

If you want to move your podcast from your current hoster to BTC Podcasting we can do that for you via "Import a podcast".

Make sure you own the rights for the podcast you want to copy before importing it. Copying and broadcasting a podcast without the proper rights is piracy and is liable to prosecution.

Castopod supports the locking tag: if you try to copy a protected podcast, you will get an error message. If you want to copy a podcast that you protected, you should un-protect it from your former hosting platform panel first.

When you are ready, just write the RSS feed URL of the podcast you are importing:

Visit Castopod to see the general import description.
