Migrating from FeedBurner to Spreaker

Switching an existing podcast to Spreaker consists of two steps:

1 - Hosting episodes on Spreaker by using the RSS importer. If episodes are already hosted on another podcasting platform, it is possible to move episodes via the RSS importing function. You simple need to copy and paste the RSS feed URL from your current hosting platform into the Spreaker RSS importer page.

2 - Forwarding your old RSS feed to the new Spreaker one. Once the importing is done, all of your episodes will be available to Spreaker’s community and can be distributed with the new Spreaker RSS feed. If your podcast is already available on platforms such as iTunes with your previous hosting and you don’t want to submit it again, it is possible to enable a redirection so you can keep your subscribers.

Please Note: Before moving all of your content be sure you have enough space in your Spreaker account. Spreaker comes with 5 hours of free storage and if you need more room for your episodes, please consider upgrading: see the Plans Page.

How to move your show from FeedBurner

1 - Go to www.feedburner.com, choose the RSS feed you want to import and copy its URL.
