    EduGeek Podcast

    I said there was exciting stuff coming up over next few weeks here is first of them the EduGeek podcast the first episode is not out yet but we want to make sure it is working ok.

    The podcast will be hosted by our very own Kevin McAleer and I am sure he will be getting you all involved.

    So all info on it can be found at the link Media/Podcas in the commuity part of the menu or by going to http://www.edugeek.net/index.php?name=zina

    The podcast feed is http://www.edugeek.net/index.php?nam...20Podcast&l=50

    Please can you subscribe and test it out make sure your clients pick it up ok etc.

    While we are waiting we uploaded the feed with sound file of Rolf Harris saying hello.

    Re: EduGeek Podcast

    By using a suitable client. iTunes is my preferred client but there are others out there ... A search on Google for podcast clients will take you to several links

    http://weblogs.about.com/od/podcastreceiversclients/
    http://www.podcastingnews.com/topics..._Software.html
    http://www.podcastlab.com/podcast_clients/

    Just for starters.

    @russ - Don't forget that it needs to end in .xml for a number of clients.

    think might be a problem with main feed in fact i know there is it is refusing to ignore the sites login system like it should so when people not looged in i.e any client etc display login screen not good..

    anyway looking into it stll subcribe as when fixed it will suddenly kick into life

    i will try and sort a third url for people who need .xml at end..

    anyway can people subscribe and make sure that rolf comes and says hello to you.

    I've given Russ the finished, polished podcast. Hopefully it will be on the site sometime soon! I'll make sure it gets published on iTunes...

    Re: EduGeek Podcast

    minor technical niggle:

    When you encode mp3's with a bitrate greater than 128kbps there's really no point in using joint stereo. Your better off using full blown dual stereo. Also, as Podcasts are mainly voice, why not stick with mono?

    Finally a request, can we have an Ogg Vorbis version of the podcast(s)? I'm prevented from using MP3 decoders/encoders on my Linux desktop due to licensing and software patent issues.
