How to subscribe to Podcasts
- In order to subscribe to a Podcast feed you will need two things, podcasting software and a url (web address) of the Podcast feed that you wish to subscribe to.
Download and install podcasting software to your computer. You can use an RSS-enabled browser such as IE7 or a dedicated podcasting application like iTunes or RSSRadio. Here is a link to a list of popular podcasting applications.
Locate the web address (url) of the Podcast feed (XML file) that you wish to subscribe - usually you can just click on the orange PODCAST or POD button.
Many podcasting applications will allow you to set the interval that the software will look for a feed update others simply update daily.
The information in the feed will be updated when the feed contains new content.
Podcasting software or RSS readers are a software application that collects and displays headlines, links to articles, and media content from sources that you have designated.
A Podcast/RSS feed is an XML document that contains the headlines, links to articles, and links to the media content that the podcasting software can then download.
