A Chirbit user recently asked how to embed a chirbit he created onto his blogger.com site. I didn’t have an online tutorial so I emailed him details. I put this post together to answer the question for anyone else who might need help embedding an audio clip. I will start posting more of these tutorials soon.
Once you have uploaded or recorded your audio on chirbit you can hover over your post to view the action icons for your post. The icon shown below is the “embed this chirbit on your webpage” icon. This is what to click to get the embed code.
When you’ve clicked the embed code icon you will get this popup window with the code you need to copy in your blogger post.
Copy the code into the HTML editor for your post.
This is what it should look like on your site!
If you want to change the color of your embedded chirbit You can switch the style on the settings for your post. There are currently two styles you can change to, but If you have a color combination suggestion email me and i’ll see about adding it.
I am excited to present this new iOS app called Instant Audio Recorder created by Wim de Nood.
IAR has some great features for capturing audio and sharing it on Chirbit and Twitter.
Here is a sample recording
I’ll go over some of these features here as listed on the iTunes app description page:
Post audio-fragments directly to Twitter as audio-tweets
Keeps recording when you switch to another app
Auto-start recording when app is opened (can be disabled)
Pause and resume recording.
Extended playback options (pause, rewind, fast forward, etc, etc).
Rename your recorded audio fragments
This is the recording interface. If you choose to make the app auto record then as soon as you launch the app it starts recording and brings you to this interface.
You can choose to disable this function the first time you launch the app or via the settings button.
The settings button pull up this dialog box which give you the option to toggle a few features.
Once you’ve recorded your audio you can play it back in the Recorded fragments area.
You will see a list of your recordings.
To share and edit your recording click your entry from the list, this will bring you into the Audio Player.
You can also delete a recording by clicking the Edit button to enter into delete mode.
The Audio Player give you the option to share your clip via Chirbit.
If you do not have a Chirbit account your clip will first be uploaded to the iar chirbit account, then a link will be posted to your twitter account.
If you do have a chirbit account you can click the gear/settings icon to add your account login info.
In this dialog box you can add your chirbit username and password to upload your post to your account.
You can rename your recording via the Rename button.
This is a quick tutorial on how to add audio to a holiday greeting card, or any printed item.
Step 1 is to create a chirbit post, which you are able to do by uploading an existing audio clip to chirbit, or recording a new one via a webcam or microphone on the site. You can also upload or email a voice memo from any smart phone with a voice recorder and email capabilites.
Step 2 is to hover over your chirbit post to click on the “view qrcode for this chirbit” icon.
after you click on the icon, the QRCode window will pop up as illustrated here.
You should now be able to download your qrcode to print it on your card or flyer.
if you prefer you can also just send/print the shortURL to your audio clip in your card or flyer.
Here is a tutorial created by chirbit user NicheProf. It walks you through using the YouTube to chirbit function. Using this functionality you can add the audio of a YouTube video to your chirbit stream.

I’ve been playing around with this great iphone app called Voice Changer Plus and I wanted to share it with you all. I was created by the good folks at Arf Software. Voice Plus lets you record your voice and then change it to one of 42 different voices listed below. Which as you might guess would make for great chirbit creating!
The free version of the app only included 18 voices until recently. It now includes all of them. To share your recordings on chirbit you must have the full version, because you need the share via email capability. I have sent them an email about adding an upload to chirbit button. (fingers crossed) I hope they do it!
To post your audio clips on chirbit just eMail your recording to firstname.lastname@example.org and include your 4 number pin in the body of the email. Here is an example of a recording I made with it.
Here is a review of the app on YouTube.
If you get a copy of the app and record something share it in the comments below. I’d love to hear your posts.
It’s the middle of summer and things are heating up at Chirbit!
I’ve been working on some graphic clean ups, but the big updates have been in the plugin department.
Chirbit WordPress Plugin
Last month I released the WordPress Chirbit Plugin. It enables you to embed your chirbit post easily on your WordPress blog/site. To embed a chirbit post in your blog all you need is the plugin and the short URL for your chirbit.
Example: [ chirbit: http://chirb.it/ghcKkPL ]
If you use it please send feedback and feature suggestions for the next version!
To embed a chirbit in a bulletin board post all you have to do is use Rick’s plugin, your chirbit short URL and the simple BBCode. Bulletin Board Code as you may know is a way to enhance posts without using HTML.
