SERMONAUDIO TIP
FTP Access Allows Uploading Any Media Files in Batch
Attention Broadcasters!

Welcome to our implementation of FTP-based uploads which will allow you to upload any media files in batch with any FTP program. Optionally, the sermon details (such as title, subtitle, speaker) are automatically submitted to the site with this method using the embedded ID3 tags information... thus saving you an extra step.

This feature is useful for those who wish to submit+upload multiple sermons in one step, without having to submit sermons individually -- or if you simply wish to upload media files using an alternate method. There are two usage scenarios:

  1. Upload Only. Upload only the media for already-submitted sermon entries.
  2. Upload+Submit. Submit NEW sermon entries and upload in a single step.
Turn ON your FTP activation. Please login to the Members Area and click on the "activate ftp" link found in the PERSONAL section there. Once you do this, you will receive further information about the FTP server, username, and password.

1. Upload ANY media for existing sermon entries.

You can now upload any media (audio, video, PDF) via FTP for multiple existing sermons already submitted to the site. A great alternative for those who prefer the robust FTP experience particularly for large video files!

To make this work, simply NAME your file using the [Sermon ID] of the existing sermon you wish to upload with the appropriate extention. For example: 123456.MP3 OR 123456.WMV OR 123456.PDF.

Please note that this will only work on sermon entries that already exist AND have NO media presently. If audio or video exists, you'll need to remove the media first. Standard video charges apply for video uploads, but there is no upload fee for audio uploads.

2. Upload AND submit NEW sermons in a single step.

The system uses the information embedded in the MP3 ID3 tags for the new sermon details to submit. Here are the ID3 field mappings for MP3 files:

Title -> Sermon Title
Artist -> Speaker
(must match an existing speaker name)
Album -> Bible Reference
(optional)
Comment -> Subtitle
(optional)

Optionally, you can also specify the date preached and the event type in the MP3 filename itself. Here's the filename format if you wish to do so -- with examples:

yyyymmdd-[event code].mp3
20090421-Sunday AM.mp3
(Date: April 21, 2009)
20080220-Radio.mp3
(Date: February 20, 2008)

If you omit the date or event type information, the system will default to today's date and to the 'Sunday Service' event type.

ID3 tags important note. The ID3 tags must be set properly in order for the system to accept the MP3. Also it is imperative that the speaker name be an exact match of an *existing* speaker entry on SermonAudio already. You will receive an email notification if rejections occur.

For those churches needing to upload a backlog of sermons all at once, we hope this will provide that extra flexibility and convenience.

Thank you!

A beta version of a desktop FTP client is available for testing and exploring:

http://www.scottmcmahan.net/saftp/

This client knows SermonAudio's naming conventions and other things, so you can use it without knowing a lot about ID3 tags and FTP.

Note that this is not feature complete, but the main core of features is working. Hopefully I'll get some feedback on the core features by the time I finish the remaining features, and do a 1.0 release soon.

If anyone is interested, I'm working on the design of a desktop program that will allow you browse your MP3s, view and set the ID3 tags, keep a log of what's uploaded, do the FTP uploads, and schedule uploads for certain days. This is going to be a fairly large project, so it may take a while to write.

If anyone wants to sign up for beta testing, contact me privately.
