I am not finding this listed within AntennaPod as a podcast. Am I not looking in the right place?

I believe Linux Saloon is not a podcast but instead a live streaming event. Episodes are archived on YouTube but I don’t think there is a podcast version.

It’d be cool if there was a podcast feed edited for audio only podcasting or a curated edited audio-friendly Saloon flights.

That is too bad. Hopefully they consider publishing as a podcast, which is what all of the other dln shows do.

We do not have to agree, but every group discussion of this nature has no advantage in video. Best to also offer in a podcast RSS feed with show notes. There is no need for the bandwidth, direct access or explicit video watching needed to enjoy this show.

I agree. I need to push this. I will work on getting the entire archive on a podcast platform.


I was fooling around listening to how audio-only sounds yesterday. You might want to consider doing something similar to

ffmpeg -i source.wav -filter:a “dynaudnorm” output.wav

Some of the guests are significantly quieter to others and some normalization did wonders in my experiment. Probably wouldn’t hurt for the live version either. (edit: I have no idea how this would even work)

I try to manually normalize it in Kdenlive when I edit it. I could export the audio after editing it and run it through some normalization.

I think the podcast idea is great, thumbs up from me.

Though I already have a solution for it for myself. I just download the show in audio only, youtube-dl can do that or basically playing with ffmpeg just like @PatPlusLinux suggests. It is used by youtube-dl anyway.
