Uploading Sermons to Church111

When uploading sermon audio files to your Church111 church website, you quickly realize that these files can take a long time to upload and can take up a lot of space on your site. File compression is the answer to this issue and for sermons, it works really well becuase the content is mostly voice rather than music. However, while churches primarily upload sermon audio files to their websites, file compression can work on any audio file without doing much damage to sound quality.

File compression helps in a couple of ways. One is to save space on your website. A second, user-friendly reason to do this is that a smaller file is easier and faster for the user to load, listen and share.

The best audio format to use is mp3. It is the standard audio format that most computers, smart phones, and other media players and devices can read. We recommend that you record your audio files in the mp3 format.

In order to compress audio files, you need an appropriate software program. We recommend iTunes, Windows Media Player or Audacity (available for Windows or Mac).

Here's how to compress mp3 audio files before uploading the file to your website.

  • Open the mp3 file in the audio application
  • Go to File > Export Audio (options vary with applications)
  • Click Options
  • Set the Quality to 32kbs and press OK
  • Press Save and then OK

Once you have created the compressed mp3 you'll need to upload it to your website admin area.

  • Go to your Pages section
  • Media Download page
  • Add new
  • Fill in information, select your mp3
  • Save

If you need assistance with this or other website issues or if you need a church website of your own, please call Church111 at 877.397.7605 or contact us for more information. We also offer live streaming of your church services so you can reach shut-ins or out of town parishoners.
