I haven’t submitted the show to ITunes, I want to get the second show done. Itunes examines your shows quality and I’m worried show001 won’t cut it. Show002 will though. In the mean time you may not want to wait, or you might use a podcatcher other than ITunes. If you don’t know what I’m talking about there will be more instructions below.
If you use ITunes:
- Launch iTunes.
- In the Advanced menu, select Subscribe to Podcast.
- Type – http://feeds.feedburner.com/theoryfromthecloset into the text box
- Rock on!
If you use another podcatcher (like me- hello Penguin lovers):
- You can look over to the right under subscribe to get to the feed.
- Copy that link and paste it to the appropriate part of your podcatcher software, or save time with this one: http://feeds.feedburner.com/theoryfromthecloset
- Rock on!
So if you don’t know what I’m talking about…. Podcasts or Netcasts is a term for an audio or video file that is distributed via a standard called RSS, or another standard called Atom.
What this means is you can have audio or video content delivered to your computer without having to spend a lot of time searching for things that interest you, or spending time going to websites to see if they have updated. Those two standards will bring the files to you, but you have to subscribe to a feed. A feed is just a term for a page that uses one or more of those two standards to report to software on your computer when there is new stuff that’s been posted. This software is called a podcatcher.
If your operating system is Windows, or OS-X you may want to use iTunes. It’s a solid podcatcher that works in a way that is very easy to understand quickly. If you don’t like that solution, you could search for the term podcatcher. Install. Then follow my instructions above.
If your operating system is Linux then hit up your package manager. I’m using Ipodder. This way not be the best solution, I didn’t do any research, so if you have a solution you prefer let me know.
If you use an Ipod and have had problems with Gtkpod, you might have to mount manually. I had problems with mine until I found out my Ipod is using
/dev/sda2 like you’ll read in the online howto’s. I think I got that info via the command:
cat /proc/scsi/scsi Anyway… if anyone is actually having trouble with this and wants a guide for how I do it, leave a comment or email me. It’s easy just put the words, “theory from the closet” without the spaces or quotation marks and put them before the symbol @ and the word gmail.com
