Go. Now. Go now! - iTunes 4.9 with Podcasts (http://www.apple.com/itunes/) :thumb:

Although the Podcasts are listed, it doesn't look like they're all ready. Some of them are downloading. Keep in mind that Apple isn't gonna have every Podcast in the world going through the iTunes store, which is why I'm keeping iPodder (http://ipodder.sourceforge.net/index.php) installed.


ipodlounge.com (http://www.ipodlounge.com) has posted their - The Complete Guide to iTunes 4.9, with Podcasts (http://www.ipodlounge.com/index.php/articles/comments/the-complete-guide-to-itunes-49-with-podcasts/)

Freedom of choice, is what you got. :rock:

they don't have a way for you to add podcasts outside of the iTunes store? no way to manually add subscriptions? That's not good. I quit using iTunes when I couldn't get 4.8 to play right with any of the Ipodder clients. ipodder, doppler - 4.8 wouldn't let any of them update playlists. 4.7 on another machine works flawlessly.

Every day Apple becomes a little bit more like the old Microsoft.

Hmm, 4.8 and iPodder always worked for me.

In the iTunes store, you look at the Podcast show's description. You can either download shows manually or hit the Subscribe button. If you’re going with Subscribe, there’ll be a new playlist called Podcast listed in your iTunes. In that, you see the shows you’re subscribed to. There’s a “Update” button in the upper right corner.

Hell no. If he can't make a buck off of it, he's not going to do it. :lol:

BBC is doing a trial run of podcasts with some of their radio programs.

Or programmes, if you'd rather.

Not sure if it's your bag, but I've found a couple of them pretty interesting.

it is possible, I just added warren ellis' superburst mixtape to it. I was already subscribed to it in another program, and justr dragged the feed into iTunes. Still haven't figured out how to download a non-directory feed directly into itunes, though.

EDIT: OK, in the iTunes menu go to advanced/subsrcibe to podcast... and just paste the url of the feed into the window.

So what does Warren Ellis talk about in his Podcast?

Mr. E!

I wasn't critical of Stern at all, just stating a fact. He's worked hard to become successful, and I begrudge him none of it.

For those of you living under a rock.
Podcasting, is a method of publishing files to the internet, often allowing users to subscribe to a feed and receive new files automatically by subscription, usually at no cost. It first became popular in late 2004, used largely for audio files. While it is derived from the word for Apple Computer's iPod audio player, it has no connection or requirement that an iPod is ever used. At the end of June 2005 Apple began including automatic podcasting subscriptions and downloads in its iTunes application and iPod players—something that had previously required third-party software.

Podcasting is distinct from other types of audio content delivery because many people use a subscription model which uses the RSS 2.0 file format. This technique has enabled independent producers to create self-published, syndicated "radio shows", and has given broadcast radio programs a new distribution channel. Some users subscribe to podcasts using "podcatching" software (also called "aggregator" software), which periodically checks for and downloads new content. It can then sync the content to the user's portable music player. Podcasting does not require an iPod or iTunes; any digital audio player or computer with the appropriate software can play podcasts. The same technique can deliver video files, and by 2005 some aggregators could play video as well as audio.

Podcasting is similar to Yahoo!'s Media RSS, a kind of syndication of media files that Yahoo! uses, among other things, to expand the search index of their Yahoo! Video Search engine with video files posted by publishers.
