Uploading media without Media Uploader

If you don’t want to use the Blubrry Media Uploader, you can use your own WebDAV client application.

WebDAV settings

WebDAV settings are simple, all you need is the WebDAV URL, your Blubrry.com user name (email address) and password.

Note: The blubrry WebDAV and API server does not use OpenID user names or passwords. If you sign into your Blubrry account with an OpenID account (via Google, AIM, etc.), you will need to configure a separate password for your account to access the Blubrry API and WebDAV servers. If you are having problems, contact us with your email address and podcast program title.

Blubrry WebDAV URL: http://api.blubrry.com/media/ (or http://api.blubrry.com/media/program_keyword/ if you know what your program keyword is)

If you already know your program’s keyword, you may use http://api.blubrry.com/media/program_keyword/,  just remember to replace program_keyword with your program’s actual keyword on Blubrry.com.

Recommended application: AnyClient

AnyClient is a freeware WebDAV client that works with Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.

Download AnyClient

AnyClient is simple to configure for WebDAV.

  1. Launch AnyClient, click the ‘File’ pull down menu and select ‘Site Manager’
  2. Click ‘New’ to add a new site.
  3. Under host, enter your Blubrry WebDAV URL (either http://api.blubrry.com/media/ or http://api.blubrry.com/media/program_keyword/ if you already know your program keyword)
  4. Username, enter your blubrry sign-in email address
  5. Password, enter your blubrry sign-in password
  6. Connection Type, select ‘WebDAV’
  7. Click ‘Save’, then ‘Connect’

Once you are connected, you can now drag and drop media files for your podcast. If you did not enter your program keyword in the WebDAV URL, please navigate into the folder with your program’s keyword before uploading media.

Cyberduck for Mac OS X (also works on Windows)

Cyberduck is an Open Source FTP, WebDAV and Amazon S3 client application for Mac OS X and Windows.

Using Quick Connect from the toolbar, type in http://api.blubrry.com/media/ then click ‘Enter’ to connect to your account. When prompted for a user name and password, enter your Blubrry account email address as your user name and your Blubrry account password as your password. Once signed in, browse to your programs folder. For your convenience, select the bookmark pull down menu and then click ‘New Bookmark’ to save a shortcut to your program’s media upload folder.

Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) or newer

Mac OS X 10.4 and newer supports WebDAV natively, but with mixed results. You’re welcome to try these settings but be aware you may encounter warnings and errors.

To use WebDAV to upload media in Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) or newer, follow these steps:

  1. Open Finder, select the Go menu and choose Connect to Server. (or press Cmd-k)
  2. In the ‘Server Address’ field, enter the following URL: http://api.blubrry.com/media/ (or if you already know your program’s keyword, use http://api.blubrry.com/media/program_keyword/, replace program_keyword with your program’s keyword)
  3. Navigate into the specific program’s folder.
  4. Drag and drop the media into the opened program’s folder.

You may now drag and drop media files you wish to publish.

Optionally, you can click the + (plus sign) to the right of the server address after you enter it, and the server will be added to your list of favorite servers.

When you log in, you can decide to have the password/passphrase remembered in your Keychain. If you do this, you will not be prompted for a password/passphrase in the future. Do not use this option if your computer security could be compromised or is used by others.
