Podcastamatic v1.3 released

Podcastamatic automates the creation of a webpage and a RSS feed for your podcast, based on MP3 tags. A webpage can either be automatically generated from scratch or generated from a template you create. Podcastamatic is highly customizable.

The new Podcastamatic release (v1.3) supports iTunes tags and now reads mp4/m4a/m4p in addition to mp3 audio files. Get it here.



  • Added support for MP4 (mp4, m4a, m4p) files. Requires Perl module “MP4::Info”.
