Podcast Tutorial


I would suggest the following web site: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Podcasting. Some might think this is highly technical but it isn't and all you have to do is work through a few steps to do it right. What follows are 3 ways to listen to these audio presentations.


#1 Best Way - Subscribe to TVS Podcast

a) downloading free aggregator software off the net:

     iTunes      http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/.
     Doppler     http://www.dopplerradio.net;
     Juice        http://juicereceiver.sourceforge.net/;

b) after downloading the software "Cut and Paste" this feed in the "Add Podcast or Add Feed" area:

http://www.trianglevegsociety.org/podcast/tvs.xml

c) click on "retrieve" and all podcasts I have available will automatically
be downloaded to your computer.

d) listen to them from your PC or upload them to your .mp3 players
and listen at your leisure.

----------------------------------

#2 Okay Way - Download Directly

a) go to http://www.trianglevegsociety.org

b) look for the listed podcasts

c) once you've found a podcast of interest "right click" on it.

d) choose a folder where you want it saved

e) select "Save Link Target As" and the file will be downloaded to your computer

f) listen on your PC or upload to an .mp3 player and listen to them at your leisure

----------------------------------

#3 Another Way - Listen Directly from Internet

a) go to http://www.trianglevegsociety.org

Trouble Shooting

If step #3 doesn't work it could be because you don't have your Audio software properly configured. Go back to #2 and once downloaded right click on the mp3 and pick "open with" using your particular Audio Software.

Another problem could be that you are using a dial up connection and the time to download is very very long. You'll have to be patient and try downloading the podcasts when you are leaving your computer for a little while. Let the computer download the podcast while you are away and you won't mind if it takes 20 or 30 minutes to download.
