How to Upload Podcast Files to Amazon S3 with Firefox

Tue, 11/17/2009 - 16:03 -- rprice

I recently moved several gigabytes of audio podcast files off of my server into the cloud. Amazon S3 is a simple and cost-effective way to reliably and quickly distribute files like podcasts to a large audience.

This video shows how to upload audio files and set public permissions using the Amazon S3 Firefox Organizer and Amazon's Simple Storage Service. Check my channel for more how-to videos and for Drupal tutorials and podcasts.

In my day-to-day, I actually use Transmit, which is a popular FTP client for the Mac. They actually added Amazon S3 support 2 years ago, I believe. It's a paid program, and platform-specific. This is the most generic solution I know of, and I needed to show someone how to upload and manage these files, so that's why I chose this tool.
