How to Upload Large Media Files to My Podbean Account: Using FTP

If your audio or video files are particularly large, you might want to upload using FTP. Here are the steps to do so.

To upload files with FTP, you’ll first need to download a FTP client. You can download the FTP client FileZilla here: https://filezilla-project.org/download.php, or choose another FTP client of your preference.

Then, follow these steps to upload your file via FTP:

1. Activate FTP uploads in your Podbean account.
Go to “Publish”->”Media Manager” in your Podbean account and click the “Ftp Upload” button.

3. Upload your files to FTP.
Go to the Local Site box, choose the file you want to upload, then right click and select “Upload” in the pop-up window. Alternatively you can just drag the file in to the Remote Site box.

4. Import the file from the FTP client to your Podbean account.
After the files are uploaded in your FTP, refresh the “Media Manager” page in your Podbean account and you’ll see all the uploaded files. Select the file and click the “Import” button to import to your Podbean account. After it shows as “Imported”, you can click the “Media Manager” tab on the left side of this page to see the imported files. You can click the “Refresh” button near the “Import” button to display more files that are uploaded in the FTP.
