Podlibre.org builds decentralized & open-source solutions for voice lovers
Podcasting is entering a new era.
The past two decades of organic growth were driven by original audio content producers.
Major digital players and audio content industry are now investing on Podcasts.
Yet, compared to the standards in Social Media and Search Engines, Podcasts - technology, user experience - have not evolved for the past 20 years.
It is time for all players - Podcasters, Radio Networks, Journalists, Writers and all Voice lovers - to take control of their medium.
Our mission is to help find a path to repairing podcast broadcasting and make it free again.
Podlibre is a set of tools which can work together or alone.
Castopod.org is a free and open-source solution (AGPL v3). Whether you choose to install it on your own server or have it hosted by a professional, all your data and analytics belong to you and you only.
Castopod.org is a part of Fediverse (Mastodon, Pleroma, PixelFed, PeerTube…). Podcasters and their audience can post, subscribe, like, comment and share natively. Millions of users already on Fediverse will be able to interact seamlessly.
Castopod.org is compatible with all Podcasts players and platforms (it can automatically generate an RSS feed).
Moreover Podcasters can choose to publish on Castopod while keeping their existing hosting solution (it can automatically generate posts from an existing RSS feed).
Any user can bookmark a podcast episode or channel that they stumbled upon on social media or anywhere on the web and listen to it later on their favorite player.
Anyone can create a link to share any podcast episode or channel. Depending on the link recipient environment, it will lead to the appropriate player.
Tag and share a specific part of a podcast episode.
DirCast.org uses Blockchain technology so that it does not rely on one specific industry player.
DirCast.org ledger allows you to update all information (name, description, categories, owner, URLs…). Its structure can evolve based on consensus.
