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

Privacy

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 publishing options available:

  • Private: The clip is not publicly visible or accessible.
  • Unlisted: The clip widget can be embedded. You can also download or link to the published audio MP3 or video MP4 file.
  • Public: The clip is publicly visible and can be shared with an Omny link and posted to Facebook or Twitter.

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

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 show a preview with the clip's artwork, title and description.

Desktop Facebook users will be taken to the omny.fm show page. Mobile users will be taken to a mobile optimised site to play the clip.

Twitter

On Twitter, the link will automatically show the clip’s artwork, title and description in a Twitter Card on desktop and mobile (however sometimes Twitter may not show the card until the tweet is expanded).

Desktop Twitter users can play the audio within the Twitter Card on the website or in an embedded tweet. Mobile iOS and Android users can play the video version of the clip within Twitter.
