How to Use the Spreaker Studio Mobile App – Podcasting Tutorial


join me today my name is Ileane Smith
and in this video we’re gonna be talking about podcasting guys
Ileane Smith here and in a previous video I asked you if you liked hearing
background music on videos or even when you’re listening to podcasts we all said
yes today I want to show you how you can use tracks to play in the background
of your podcast episode we’re gonna use the Spreaker studio app so come on let’s
get started we started off over here in the youtube
audio library and we found a track that we don’t have to give attribution to and
so I’ve already downloaded this one is called does it flute next step is to
upload the file to Dropbox so it’ll be available when we open the Spreaker
studio app now you recognize the Spreaker studio app it’s the red one
that has the record on it now when you go into the app you’ll see first that
you can add effects because this is our effects menu so we’re going to click on
the add effects now you have choices the one that we’re going to take is brows
because remember we uploaded the file to Dropbox but we could have also used
Google Drive so just so you see the choices there Dropbox or Drive alright
and what I did was I put a few zeros in the front of the file name so that it
would be easy for me to find especially for this demo and so now you see there’s
a 3-minute track there called does it float one of the things we want to check
is that this auto ducking feature is on because auto ducking tells the app how
loud that background music should be we can always increase that so let’s just
say we want it that music to be really subtle in the background okay so now
we’re gonna leave it on so now we’ll go back
and we’ll just do a quick recording and this is going to be the missing in
speaks podcast we’ll do it offline we could go live if we wanted to but we’re
gonna go offline hey guys welcome to the miss Eileen speaks podcast in today’s
episode we’re talking about the Spreaker studio app stay tuned that’s what’s
coming up in today’s episode you want to learn more about how to use amazing
podcasting apps like Spreaker studio or anchor or even the pod bean app be sure
to subscribe and I will see you in the next video peace yes I figured that
because I’ve been hearing a lot of talk about the background music especially
over on anchor because when you’re an anchor and you record especially if
you’re on your iPhone and you’re starting to add in the background tracks
you play back to preview before you publish and a lot of people are
complaining that the background music has got too loud well it turns out that
it’s only loud in the preview and it won’t actually show up in the recording
of the podcast but you still don’t get a chance to really hear how well your
voice has projected over that background music and so I wanted to make sure that
you know that you have other options so you can use the Spreaker app and its
spreaker.com and if you want to sign up for Spreaker you can start off with a
free account and that gives you access to the mobile apps and the Spreaker
mobile apps you have one app where you can listen to podcasts and you can share
your podcast from that app as well but you also have the Spreaker studio app
which I just did in that demo I just showed you how you can actually record
and best of all you guys know I love it you can live
stream and the speaker studio app so you can live stream your podcast live
streaming does not have to be just a live streaming for video so I do have
some comments but I also have a cool new way to bring up the live chat and I can
bring them up on screen now and this is using ECAM live and Jason I am Jason
Allen says I would love a feature like this my fate 4i I’m assuming he means
for my Facebook live broadcast and if you’re talking about me bringing up
these comments on screen but that’s a feature you’re referring to Jason let me
know for sure and that case then you need ECAM live now you can find the link
for ECAM live in the description of this video but I’ll tell you that you can go
to my affiliate link in that Eilen dot link slash ECAM live and that’s with two
M’s okay so there that’s there’s that so now let’s bring up the next comment also
my friend John Wayne is here so he said do you know anything about the new
advanced procurement portal app actually John no I don’t because uh even though
that’s something that we get involved with at my day job I don’t get involved
in that end of the business I usually just do the marketing and all that good
stuff and you know me I’m your digital media tour guide so there we go so Jason
oh I’m sorry Larry snow is here hey Larry how are you
and Larry has been helping me test out this app as well as any other podcasting
apps and things that we use but this app that I’m talking about now is ECAM live
and this one is it integrates with Skype and in fact when I talked about the ECAM
live link there’s that link I’m able to bring that up as an overlay as well so I
may need to go in here and the color of it so let me tweak that
because that’s a that color is not dark enough so let’s go in here make it a
little bit darker mm now it’s a little bit easier to see but my background
although I’m kind of far from the mic so let me get back over here there you go
so that this is the tool that I’m using here for this broadcast and I see my
friend Janice here so hang on I’m gonna get your comments up on screen and I
like this way of bringing comments up is because of the fact that I can bring
them up one at a time and actually I didn’t realize that Shelby was here
first so let’s see Shelby says it’s Facebook live audio available an iPhone
or just Android I have iPhone and don’t have the feature yes Facebook live audio
is available in iTunes they just move the button you know Facebook always
likes to move the cheese Shelby so so what they did was they move that button
and I actually have a video tutorial to show you how where they move the button
what would you have to look for is the circle with the three dots in it it’s a
circle with three dots right before your giveaway go live you’re looking like
you’re gonna ready go live video but you want to look for their circle with the
three dots and when you click that on that’s where you’ll see live audio now
they moved it from where I showed in a previous video so I had to do a makeup
video for that and I did that but I’m not sure if you saw that one so and
Jason says by the way thank you Aileen you’re welcome Jason and yes adding the
background music one this Freaker app is super easy you can do it or anchor it’s
easy on anchor as well but you can’t always hear the the actual balance
between your voice and the music and so that’s not really a good thing because
you want to make sure that you’re able to project your voice over top of the
music the music is not supposed to be the main attraction right you are
because it’s your show or your guests if you have if you’re in doing an interview
show so Jenn is here I love ECAM life and use it all the time
how are you using it on YouTube using a streaming key Oh Jen you haven’t been
over in our group lately have you because Jen and I are in a beta testers
group for ECAM live but Jen I think you missed the last update you don’t need
the stream key anymore and actually with the stream key
I would not be able to bring these comments up on screen so I’m glad I’m
not using the stream key and you can get the updated version probably if you just
go over to you can live beta app and ask for the update now if you’re not in that
group which I think you are Jen but if you’re not message me on Facebook and
I’ll hook you up honey but yeah so a couple things going on here and I just
want to make sure that everybody is on the same page because we’re really
talking about podcasting okay but this this app that I’m using here to do this
live video streaming so exciting that I do want a segue now over into talking
about the ECAM live app and I did talk to my friend Larry of snow earlier and
mentioned that I would be I just realized I’m sorry Larry
I won’t be able to do it because Skype has crashed on me oh no and let me get
back in never mind I take that back Skype did crash but all
I did was say I wanted to close it out and it opened back up but I didn’t want
for it to do that I didn’t want for it to open up the empty windows so we got
we took care of that so you know that’s not a camps fault that Skype okay and
Jen says she thinks she is in that group well you’ll know if you’re in the group
because your version of ECAM when you open up it’ll say ECAM live beta and if
it doesn’t say beta then you let me know okay sweetie
all right and then oh okay you’re already
penned that comment earlier about how you love ECAM live so just a real quick
recap about ECAM life because I have to give them credit because this app is
probably the one of the most incredible apps that I’ve used especially for live
streaming it’s definitely the most incredible app
by every use for live streaming because I can live stream into Facebook I can
live stream into periscope yeah periscope isn’t that something
and I can live stream into I just sent you a request Larry by the way over
there one Skype and um I can live stream on Twitch and as you can see here I can
live stream on YouTube all of that with this app and I can bring those comments
up on the screen you know and the supreme Larry’s coming up again and I’m
not sure if he’s available now on skype to come in but and I wish I knew how to
turn down those little sound effects from Skype I’m not sure person whom
you’re trying to reach is currently unavailable please leave a message after
the beep that was a fail okay Larry um yeah that was a fail so we’re hang up on
that okay guys no biggie so what what can happen is if the person
is connected with you on skype you can call them and you usually would set that
up before you go live right because of what just happened you don’t want that
interrupting your broadcast but you can call the person on skype and you can
actually bring someone in and you can actually bring it more than one person
so you can have your multi person broadcast with this tool ECAM live and
you can do that on all those platforms that I mentioned earlier now yeah you
can even do that on which now with twitch okay Larry you
have to hang up because I have to call you that’s the only thing about this he
cam I have in order to bring him in I have to call him so he had tried to call
me back and hopefully we will get this going this time and looks like hang on
guys there you go oh and we have our friend Larry snow and this time I can
actually hear him we tried this a few times in the past guys and I couldn’t
hear Larry and so this is just a tip to tell you guys in case you ever do get
DCAM live and start using it my settings on skype were wrong so I was you trying
to use the wrong device to listen to any of the incoming sounds so Larry how are
you today I’m well how are you good I don’t know if you got a chance to see
any of my demo of Spreaker or if you had ever tried it before
I think the Skype integration is what is texting my computer
so unfortunately Larry I am going to force quit the Skype and thanks Rob
Greenlee for showing up and Larry had already hung up okay good so okay now
Skype was giving me problems if you guys remember when I open Skype it said you
escape has rebooted so Skype is an issue and I’m not going to get too concerned
about that because I constantly hear people saying that Skype gives them
problems so I wish there was another way that I can bring people in and hey
beauty bubble thank you for coming and first let me put Rob’s comment up
and yeah I’m having little problems now even with the ECAM because of the Skype
issue so that’s okay you guys can still see me
I hope it’s hard to tell because right now I have the beach ball and so I can’t
tell if you guys can see me or not so let me see if I type into the chat now I
can’t type into the chat either oh there you go
it came back and so can you hear me and so yeah sure you’re welcome Rob for the
support of Spreaker and I love the Spreaker app and I think that there are
so many people who overlook the benefits of using Spreaker and so I’m happy to
spread the word and by the way app Rob Sergio was supposed to be getting in
touch with me for my code and he hasn’t gotten in touch with me for that so if
you could put a bug in Sergio’s here I would appreciate that so I’m going to go
and see if YouTube started another video for me or if this is the same video
because I think it’s the same video it’s weird because I’m just a minim at the
backend of my YouTube right now and I don’t even see that even the first
version of the video oh but I know I’m live because Larry just typed in the
chat and the night bot just showed up and for those who want to know more
about the night bye we’ll talk about that one day too
so here’s Larry saying yep you can see and hear me so that video is just not
showing up on the back end and of course I lost track of the link to it because
of the crash right and so Michael Daniels I love the chat on-screen you
need to share with me your secret oh it’s eat
life ECAM live Michael so let’s get Michael’s comment up and um it’s called
you cam live but you need a Mac if I’m not mistaken Michael you’re not on a Mac
so if you’re not on a Mac sorry no soup for you and I appreciate everybody who
has hung in here with me through this little crash that I had so what I’m
going to do it’s only a two minute demo and since Rob is here and beauty is here
and a lot of you guys are interested in podcasting so I’m just gonna play that
quick demo Aileen Smith here and in a previous video I asked you if you liked
hearing background music on videos or even when you’re listening to podcasts
we all said yes today I want to show you how you can use the old tracks to play
in the background of your podcast episode we’re going to use the Spreaker
studio app so come on let’s get started we started off over
here in the YouTube audio library and we found a track that we don’t have to give
attribution to and so I’ve already downloaded this one is called does it
flute next step is to upload the file to Dropbox so it’ll be available when we
open the Spreaker studio app now you recognize the Spreaker studio app it’s
the red one that has the record on it now when you go into the app you’ll see
first that you can add effects because this is our effects menu so we’re going
to click on the add effects now you have choices the one that we’re going to take
is brows because remember we uploaded the file to Dropbox but we could have
also used Google Drive so just so you see the choices there Dropbox or Drive
alright and what I did was I put a few zeros in the front of the file name so
that it would be easy for me to find especially for this demo and
so now you see there’s a 3-minute track there called does it float one of the
things we want to check is that this Auto ducking feature is on because auto
ducking tells the app how loud that background music should be we can always
increase that so let’s just say we want it that music to be really subtle in the
background ok so now we run it even once so now we’ll go back and we’ll just do a
quick recording and this is going to be the miss Eileen speaks podcast we’ll do
it offline we could go live if we wanted to but we’re going to go offline hey
guys welcome to the miss Eileen speaks podcast in today’s episode we’re talking
about the Spreaker studio app stay tuned that’s what’s coming up in today’s
episode you want to learn more about how to use amazing podcasting apps like
Spreaker studio or anchor or even the pod bean app be sure to subscribe and I
will see you in the next video peace now for you podcasters as I’m listening to
that I’m thinking of things that I need to tell you and one of the reasons why
I’m always promoting Spreaker okay first of all Spreaker gives you countless
options for how you can do your podcasts now I also talked about Lipson and you
know that’s probably the podcasting host that most people think of if they know
any you know if they’ve been around for a while okay and Lipson is great I love
Lipson too but what I really love about Spreaker and that Lipson does not have
is the ability to record they don’t give you any recording tools at Lipson
Spreaker provides not only the app they have it for iOS they have it for Android
you can brow you can use the browser Spreaker studio so you can
login to your account and start recording from the browser now anchor
has that option too but they also this is another reason why Spreaker is heads
and shoulders above the rest they also have the app that you can download onto
your computer so this is a really unique feature hey my girl Bren is here as well
now and you know when you are you’re able to record it from your computer and
that’s how you would take advantage of Skype if you want to bring in a co-host
or if you want to do an interview you can do that and you probably can do that
on the browser as well but the point is Spreaker has recording tools for you and
most of the other hosts don’t provide that now the other host that does
provide that I want to give them their shout-out as well it’s pod bean pod bean
does have an app it has limited functionality compared to Spreaker but
it’ll do and you can add that background music and all of that right there on the
pod be nap but Spreaker is really a studio where you can you know increase
the volume you can add in all the little stingers or stings you know a little
sound effects and things where as you can’t do that with pop bean is just the
built-in things and the same way with anchor you only can add the built-in
things that they have there but with Spreaker you can bring in your own sound
effects you can bring in your old background music and you can do what I’m
doing now and I mentioned it earlier but I’m gonna say it again cuz I know new
folks came in you can live stream you can live stream your show you can live
stream your show Rob Brandi he was here earlier he actually works for Spreaker
and he does the Spreaker live show every
Wednesday here e courts that show live with his co-host Alex Exim so this is a
unique scenario that you can do with Spreaker and that’s why I’m always
telling folks about them and you know pretty much they are one of my favorites
so yeah so that was the podcasting thing the other thing was this live streaming
video tool that I’m using which is the ECAM live and for folks like Michael
Daniels if you’re still here there is a PC solution not as full
featured as ECAM but it’s called stage 10 and I believe I told you about it
before but just to remind you again it’s called stage 10 and it’s a browser-based
you have to use Chrome browser based a tool that you can use to livestream
Facebook you can’t bring the comments up on screen I don’t think not yet but is
something I could see that they may end up adding but you can put your branding
and you know your locals and all that stuff there too so that you don’t have
to just live stream on YouTube because I know Michael Daniels is like YouTube
live streamer he’s been doing it for years and some of you guys you may be
watching now your live streamers and you’re doing it on YouTube but there’s
other platforms and this is what I like about both ECAM live as well as stage 10
that you can also go live on Twitch and on periscope and of course Facebook and
YouTube okay okay interesting idea to publish live stream
as podcast well yeah you’re actually live stream and then you eventually
publish it to your podcast but to live stream your podcast is a great way to
bring your audience together just like you know you do the live streaming of
videos a lot of times people do live stream video and repurpose that as a
podcast the only thing different with Spreaker says the belt is built-in you
don’t have to download and upload do all that stuff you have your Spreaker
studio there add your intro bring on your guests do your interview or your as
if it’s a co-host talk about whatever you want to talk about if you want to
have a maybe you have a clip an audio clip from another source that you want
to play depending upon what your podcast is about right you bring in that quick
audio clip of course you get permission to play the clip then you go back have
some more banter then you can have your commercials if you have an advertiser or
sponsor you can bring that if they have a pre-recorded thing Spreaker also has
the advertising platform that allows you to add pre-roll and post roll and
eventually they’ll allow you to add mid-roll and you just let them know that
insertion point which ii just put that really quickly after you’ve recorded
your podcast you know that there was a point in it where you transition from
one topic to another that would be your insertion point and that would be where
you would say yep play an ad right there you know and you of course make sure
that it matches up with your audience and that’s Spreaker that’s one of the
things they do and Vox ness which is the big parent company for them now and you
know Spreaker has all that and so even if you’re hosting your show one Lipson
or you’re hosting your show on blueberry or you’re hosting your show on podcast
you can use on pi bean there is an app called podcast but they something’s
wrong they don’t take new submissions or something like that so anyway if you’re
hosting it one another host except anchor you can still take advantage of
the advertising platform that is under the umbrella of Vox nest but it’s called
dynamo and I actually did a little bit of a demo about that hey Pat Murray my
friend is listening while driving that is the Durham skywriter anybody who’s
anywhere near North Carolina or if you got friends
family in North Carolina make sure you follow during the skywriter because she
will keep you up to date on all the happenings okay so so that was pretty
much what I wanted to cover today and if you guys have any questions always know
that there’s two ways that you can contact me okay so let’s see if I have
that already written out in one of my overlays I may or may know but I did
just get reminded to let you know that I do have a course on anchor and videos
tutorials like this or also be included in that course where we actually go
beyond what you can do with anchor okay because anchor has limitations so
Spreaker can help you expand on what you can do with anchor and so I’m going to
include that in the course as well I don’t want to just limit it to anchor so
that’s over it I mean that link a slash course that’s where you can find that
course all right so let’s get back to the ways that you can contact me so I
might as well do that right now too and put it up overlay for that and so you
just bear with me and I know that sometimes you just want to email me you
want to we better make that a little bit smaller so that we can fit it on the
make the font a little smaller how we do that there so it doesn’t interfere with
my my uber uncute hairstyle Today Tomorrow super cute Saturday today’s
uber uncute but anyway I did try it try my best to do something with it email me
at Eileen smith.com slash contact Eileen smith.com slash contact and if you’re
you know watching this you’ll see it on the screen I Ellie
ayyyy smith.com slash contact and so I’m doing and so I’ll be over right okay
okay thank you thank you so much it’s so nice to be on live stream and somebody
bring you some food some sustenance alright so I want to also let you know
if you want to leave me a voicemail and this is important too because sometimes
people may think that only way they can leave me a voicemail is over on anchor
and that’s not the case you can just go to Eileen smith.com slash voicemail and
you know if you leave me a voicemail just know that I probably will include
you in an episode of the podcast or perhaps an upcoming YouTube video so you
get a shout out and you’ll get in front of some of my peeps and of course you
know let them know what it is you specialize in and what your specialties
are and what they need to what kind of value that you can offer to them how’s
that so with that guys this food smells so good and I also got to make sure I
head over to LA Fitness today so if you’re in the area highlight your girl
okay with that I want you to have a wonderful day and I thank you so so very
much for coming and if you could just you know share this out one Twitter
Facebook reddit wherever you like to share great content so talk to you soon
and have a wonderful day peace

  3. Thanks Ileane. I think Podbean app is better. It provides lots of beautiful music, sound effects, and the audio editing tool is super cool and easy to use. Spreaker is still a good choice for live broadcasting.

  4. When I try and put background music it says it is dmr protected to all of my apple songs can anyone help?
