M4V Video Podcasting beta 18 March 2006

Ryan Prosser has provided a patch for Podcastamatic to recognize M4V files (Apple's iPod Video-- but Ryan tells me that the video is not limited to iPods or iTunes). Thanks Ryan! I haven't tested this at all, but I want to get this out there because with popularity of video podcasting, I hope this will be useful. If you have success (or problems) using this, please email me. Download Beta only includes "podcastamatic.pl", get Podcastamatic v1.3 for the docs and example config

What does Podcastamatic do?

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. An RSS feed is an XML file that is required to be listed in most popular podcast directories. Podcastamatic is highly customizable.

Operating Systems

Windows, Mac OSX, and Linux are confirmed to work. Most other Unixes should work too. See the readme file for installation instructions.

iTunes Specific Tags

Podcastamatic supports iTunes tags, including images, author, explicit, and multiple catagories. Also MP4 (mp4, m4a, m4p) files are now supported.


For examples of Podcastamatic HTML and RSS output, see Shakespeare Souffle and Homeschool Habitat.
