The new podcasting feature is up and running. On the right menu bar, you can see a selection that shows the 10 most recent podcast posts.
Additionally, if you’re a user of iTunes, you can click on this link which will take you to where you can subscribe to my podcast with your iTunes client and get new episodes automatically downloaded to your PC.
New episodes will go up regularly on Mondays, and will also appear as special features if we have additional audio/video content.
Update: A reader in the comments (and an email) has pointed out that if you play the podcasts from the embedded flash player while using Internet Explorer, you get an Alvin & the Chipmunks sound effect. This has to do with the bitrate that the files are encoded at. I’m working on a bug fix, however right now the files do play correctly in Firefox, or if you select the “download” option, as well as if you subscribe to the feed via iTunes. Basically, they only don’t work if you use the embedded player in Internet Explorer. Firefox, iTunes, and direct downloads work just fine.
Short of pulling the files down and re-encoding them, there really isn’t a fix for this. However, future uploads should play correctly in both Internet Explorer and Firefox. Right now, older posts only display correctly in Firefox, or via the direct download button.
Is it just me or are the podcasts supposed to sound like they’re being done by Alvin & The Chipmunks?
No, they’re not. Are you listening to them through iTunes, or just playing them off the site?
