Auto-Convert MP3 Uploads Makes Broadcasting Easier!
Attention all broadcasters!
We are pleased to announce an important new feature that makes it even easier for broadcasters to upload their sermons to SermonAudio.com! Previously, all MP3s being uploaded needed to be in the precise bitrate format in order for the upload to succeed. But now you can upload your audio in the MP3/WMA/M4A/WAV format, at any bitrate, and we will automatically convert it to the correct MP3 format for you with the ideal settings for optimum sound quality!
You can now upload in the MP3, WMA, M4A, or WAV audio format -- at any bitrate. However, we highly discourage uploading in the WAV format as the files are very large and will take longer to process.
Many of today's handheld digital voice recorders and free audio software tools can already record directly into the MP3 or WMA format. The difficulty in the past has typically been in getting the bitrate setting just right. Now you can simply RECORD and UPLOAD! Hooray for auto-convert!
We use optimal conversion settings so your MP3s will sound great if you allow us to perform the auto-conversion! Give it a try!
Scott, we have tested this extensively ourselves because we too had similar questions. But we have found that the quality after the conversion is very good and is really not an issue. Convenience is where this type of feature really shines.
But if the broadcaster is concerned about quality, they will always have the option to encode directly to the required bitrate themselves before uploading and we will not re-encode it in that case. Thank you.
