This article will help you link a podcast to Searchie from Apple Podcasts or Soundcloud.
What you will need:
From the main Searchie dashboard, click on the upload media (+) button in the bottom right-hand corner.
Click on the 'Upload from Podcast' button.
Step 3 (iTunes)
Use this step if you're planning on uploading a podcast from Apple Podcasts. Skip to Step 5 for SoundCloud podcasts.
Now you'll have to find the podcast URL of the podcast you want to connect to Searchie.
Open the iTunes or Apple Podcasts application and locate the podcast that you'd like to sync.
Now from the podcast that you've opened go into the dropdown menu beside the subscribe button and click 'Copy Link'. Now skip to Step 7.
Use this step if you're planning on linking from Soundcloud instead. Visit the URL https://soundcloud.com to browse podcast options.
Use the search bar to find a podcast that you'd like to add- make sure to click a podcast channel link, not a podcast play link. To differentiate the two look for a 'Follow' button and that'll be a podcast channel link.
Once you've found a podcast channel that you'd like to sync, copy the URL at the top of the page (make sure it is in the format "https://soundcloud.com/[podcastchannel]"). For example, https://soundcloud.com/businessrepublic is the format you should use for the page below.
Alternatively, you can click 'Share' on the podcast page and copy the link that appears as well.
Now head back into the Searchie app and click 'Add New Podcast' and paste your link into the 'Enter your podcast URL here' field.
If this is the podcast you'd like to import, click 'Verify' and you will see a thumbnail of your podcast if done correctly. Click 'Add Podcast' and Searchie will sync with the podcast feed to pull the files into Searchie.
This will create a podcast folder for the audio files, you can choose files individually to upload them and transcribe them by selecting 'Add to Media'.
