Omny Studio has a number of tools that allow you to easily share your audio to social media. 

Privacy and visibility

All clips are private by default and cannot be seen or accessed by the public. Publish a clip to make it accessible by others. There are several visibility options:

  • Private: The clip is not publicly visible or accessible.
  • Unlisted: The clip can be accessed with an omny.fm link directly (but won't appear in the show listing and won't be indexed by search engines), can be embedded, and can be downloaded directly, and will appear in the RSS feed if added to a playlist.
  • Public: The clip is accessed with an omny.fm link (will appear in the show listing and will be indexed by search engines), can be embedded, can be downloaded directly, and will appear in RSS feeds if added to a playlist.

Important: For most sharing features to appear, your clip must be set to Public or Unlisted. If a clip is set to Private you won't be able to access the sharing features. 

Sharing on social media

Visualised audio

The best way to share your clips on Facebook and Twitter is to use our visualised audio feature. Videos are displayed natively in their feeds and allow users to engage with the content without opening any links.

Web audio player

The published omny.fm link can also be shared anywhere. It links to an Omny page with a web player allowing desktop and mobile users to listen to the clip. It also includes the artwork, title and description of the clip. This link can easily be accessed by clicking on the clip you want to share. 

The omny.fm web player can also be manually tweaked to enable further functionality

  • Play from: add ?t=5s  to the URL to start the player at a specified time. The time format is ##m##s  for minutes and seconds.
  • Autoplay: add ?autoplay=0  to the URL to disable autoplay on load. (Note: autoplay is enabled by default)

Facebook

Sharing the omny.fm link on Facebook will automatically show a preview with the clip's artwork, title and description.

Clicking the link will open the responsive omny.fm web player which is optimised for both desktop and mobile playback.

Twitter

Sharing the omny.fm link on Twitter will automatically show the clip’s artwork, title and description in a Twitter Card on desktop and mobile.

Note: due to Twitter's feed algorithms, some views may not show the Twitter Card until the tweet is expanded.

Twitter users on desktop can play the audio through an embedded player within the Twitter Card. Twitter users on mobile can play the audio through an embedded player that opens in Twitter's built-in web browser.
