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 dedicated to providing the best tools and services for our podcasting community.
Step 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.
Step 2: Redirect your SoundCloud feed to your new Podbean feed.
In your SoundCloud account, input your Podbean feed in the “Subscriber Redirect” field.
Step 3: Turn on the iTunes new feed URL tag in your Podbean account.
Log in to your Podbean account and go to the ‘Settings’->’Feed/iTunes’ page. Scroll down the page, turn on the “iTunes:new-feed-url”, then click the “Update Options” button to save your changes.
Step 4: Update your feed information in iTunes.
Here is the Podcasts Connect Help article on updating your RSS (follow the steps under “to change your RSS feed URL”).
