OIT announces a major update to Warpwire, Duke’s audio video streaming service. Warpwire version 2.8 will improve podcast hosting for those that formerly used iTunes U to host podcasts. It also enables an audio only player and improved RSS feeds directed to Apple Podcasts.
In addition, Warpwire 2.8 includes these new features:
- Faster playback around the world, due to enhanced global hosting.
- Better recording. No more Flash and the ability to record your screen.
- Web-based editor including a clipping tool to trim AV clips.
Please note: Warpwire is expected to function normally during the update, however, users will not be able to upload files during the update from 8 p.m. January 7 until 2 a.m. January 8. For concerns or issues contact the OIT service desk at oit.duke.edu/help.

Apple announced that it is planning to decommission the private (academic) part of it’s iTunes U Service on September 1, 2015. OIT has reached out to administrators for this content to work with them to transition any content still needed to Warpwire and/or Box, the two platforms OIT currently supports for secure delivery of media.
This change represents a significant milestone as Duke was one of Apple’s original partners in launching iTunes U in 2007 (both the public and private sections). Duke’s integration with Shibboleth, including the ability to restrict access to specific Grouper groups, such as course groups, was innovative for its time.
Duke’s internationally popular public site and albums in iTunes U will be unaffected by this change.
One of the most powerful aspects of WordPress is that you can embed videos into a page or post to be able to further explain a point you are making. This video can be self generated or one that you are citing online. Using the Duke Media Embed setting within Sites@Duke, you can also easily embed videos from DukeCapture (Panopto) or Warpwire.
