Clammr Is Shutting Down



RIP ClammrMaking podcast audio sharable online is certainly a worthwhile task. When was the last time a piece of audio went viral? After all, it can be tough to easily share long-form content. Or more specifically, segments of that long-form content.

Podcast-clip sharing service Clammr had hoped to be the solution to this problem. But alas, the company has announced it will be shutting down. From an e-mail sent to registered Clammr users:

Dear Clammr Users:

It’s time for our team to move on to new adventures. We write to inform you that we will be shutting down the Clammr service at 11:59pm ET on 2 July 2017.

Thank you for all of the creativity and joy that you have shared with the world using Clammr. We’ve been inspired by the community every day and cherish having had the opportunity to get to know so many amazing and talented people.

We realize that some of you may wish to keep the Clammr clips you created. We have posted instructions with a hack on how to do that in Section XIX of the User Guide. In short, you need to take three steps (1) share the clip to twitter using the Clammr app; (2) go to twitter and copy the url of the tweet; (3) enter the url on a tweet-to-MP4 conversion site to generate an MP4 video file that you can download.

Many thanks and best wishes!

– The Clammr Team

The shutdown was also confirmed by Clammr’s Twitter account:


Clammr Support Added to PowerPress Plugin



CLammr logoSometimes billed as the “Twitter for audio,” Clammr is a social-sharing app that focuses on short audio clips. These clips can be either new recordings or they can be taken from existing audio files. Many podcasters have embraced Clammr as a way to share clips from their own shows, as well as other shows they follow. Clammr users have been able to access the service thru either a web or mobile app, where they could create or curate their audio clips to be shared on the social web. Now the Clammr service is also supported by the popular PowerPress podcasting plugin for WordPress:

Clammr Audio Sharing is embedded within the Blubrry player and allows podcasters and listeners to share a segment of their audio on social networks. Web-based users now have the same features as those that are using the Clammr mobile application. The share button posts an audio highlight that is playable natively in Facebook and/or Twitter with a link back to the full podcast.

In order to use the Clammr feature with PowerPress, users will need to be running both the current versions of PowerPress (6.2) as well as the Audio Player by Clammr (1.1.0) WordPress plugins.
