- Podcast Subscribing/Syncing -<br><br>
This feature is possible under Linux, however there is not one app that
does it all. In order to subscribe to a podcast, you need a Podcast
catcher tool, like iPodder. The iPodder software just keeps track of
all your podcast subscriptions and downloads new episodes. <a href="http://ipodder.sourceforge.net/" target="_blank" onclick="return top.js.OpenExtLink(window,event,this)">http://ipodder.sourceforge.net</a> (PROJECT HOMEPAGE). Once you have downloaded your podcasts, all that is left to do is to sync them with gtkpod.
Amarok now supports Podcasts and Podcast syncing. If this is important to you, Amarok is worth checking out.<br></blockquote>
<br></blockquote></div><br>Someone should update that site, then. iPodder died years ago. It transformed to Juice, with a promise to update the Linux version. After over a year of promising a Linux version, Juice gave up and now points you to other software. CastPodder upgraded iPodder for years, then the developer gave up on that as well.
<br><br>I use Amarok regularly and it does a good job with podcasts, at least audio-only podcasts.<br><br>Well, it can download video podcasts, just as well, but it can't play them. But if you are syncing to your iPod, that doesn't matter.
<br><br>In fact, Amarok will sync with your iPod quite nicely as well. You may not need gtkpod at all.<br clear="all"><br>-- <br>John DeCarlo, My Views Are My Own
