Migrating Your Podcast from SoundCloud to Podbean

Migrating from SoundCloud to Podbean is an easy process. With Podbean’s affordable unlimited hosting plans loaded with tons of great features and benefits, it’s a smart move! Podbean has been supporting podcasters for over 10 years; we’re focused solely on podcasters and podcast listeners, developing better podcast tools every day.

To migrate your podcast over to Podbean from SoundCloud:

1. Import your SoundCloud feed into Podbean. Get your RSS feed in SoundCloud (see “RSS feed” on your content settings page and copy).

In your Podbean account, under “Publish”→”Episodes”, click on “Import RSS”. Then, paste your SoundCloud RSS feed URL and click the “Import” button.

Note: The podcast contents will be imported first and the system will show a pop-up message when the contents are successfully imported. Then the system will import the audio and video files. It will take from 15 minutes to few hours to import them based on the size of all the media files. The system will notify you as to whether all the media files have been imported or only parts of them. If there are some media files that cannot be imported, you’ll need to upload them manually and then attach them to the respective episodes.

2. Redirect your SoundCloud feed to your new Podbean feed. In your SoundCloud account, input your Podbean feed in the “Subscriber Redirect” field.

If you have any questions or need more information, please contact the Podbean Support team at http://support.podbean.com/ (or via live chat/message right from your Podbean site).

The Support Center also has great tutorial videos and FAQs on the many features Podbean offers. You can also join our Podcasting Smarter Facebook group to share questions, tips and resources with other podcasters and the Podbean community.

Happy podcasting!
