Itunes uploading notes

Here is what Steve K has learned as of 7-17-2008

I uploaded the NYSP event to the Campus Life-University Circle Events Album I made. Straight from the staging folder on the youtube computer on a cart.

Facts you must know
1. Files must be 500 MB or less. Some of our longer stuff like Commencement is over.
2. Metadata (which needs to be standardized) must be added in itunes before uploading the file. You can only change the Name and Artist Fields after the fact.
3. Files are uploaded via a link that sends you to web browser.
4. Files are also modified through web browser.
5. Could not upload mp3 as the server appears to be off or down.

Future tips and notes

There is an itunes U forum at

There is a Itunes U utility and uploader some guy built for Mac OS X only called Woolamaloo

Around 9pm I kept getting this error if I clicked on the Classes section
It would open firefox and display
