Podcasting combines the terms iPod and broadcasting to describe video and audio content delivered through the Internet that can be downloaded and played on a computer or transferred to a portable media player (like an Apple iPod, Microsoft Zune, or Sony PSP) so they can be viewed or listened to offline.
Podcasting differs from conventional downloading in that free software is used to subscribe to a podcast feed. New episodes become available as they are published.
No. You do not need an iPod or other portable media player to subscribe to or experience podcasts. You can simply watch and listen on your computer.
The latest web browsers (Firefox 2 and up, Internet Explorer 7 and up, Safari 3 and up) allow you to watch or listen online, but to subscribe you will need to use podcasting software such as iTunes or Juice.
To subscribe to the podcast, open your podcasting software and insert our feed address — http://www.pbs.org/victorygarden/rss/vodcast.xml — by following the instructions for your particular podcasting software. Once you subscribe, your computer will notify you or automatically download video or audio files every time a new podcast episode is available.
If you don't yet have podcasting software, you can get it for free using these links:
