The clip tool uses timestamps to make downloadable MP3 files directly inside the Megaphone platform. These clips can be used to share a portion of a podcast on various endpoints such as social media channels or to create new RSS feeds for distribution on smart speakers.
Note: The clip tool is in its first version to gather feedback from users for future improvements.
Create a Clip
To create a clip, navigate to the podcast you'd like to clip from (you can access podcasts through the Podcast library tab on the left sidebar).
On the podcast dashboard, select the scissor icon under "Actions" next to the episode you would like to clip:
On the Create a Clip modal, use the Start and End timestamp sections to denote where you want the clip to begin and end. Timestamps should be reflected as HH:MM:SS:mm and fit within the duration of the episode. Clips can be between 30 seconds and 12 minutes in length.
Save a Clip
Once your clip is at the proper duration, include a Clip Title and hit save. All saved clips will be stored on the "Clips" tab on the podcast dashboard, next to "Episodes" and "Drafts".
Download a Clip
From the clips library, you can download the clip MP3 file to your device.
