    Podcatching Software

    Advertisement



    Hello all,

    I'm looking for a program to act as a podcatcher for the week while I am out of town. I know viigo is an RSS reader, can I use that to download updated podcasts? Don't really mind if I have to go in there and manually click in the feed to download it, but I know that the berry browser sometimes has problems saving larger files. I'm talking about audio only, and about 25megs each. I've got a 2gb card in my 8130 with plenty of space.

    Viigo beta project tango is what you want. I believe they have a public beta version. The official version eight now can't do it but Viigo beta can. I don't know the link for the public version, maybe someone else here knows?

    No podcasts yet in the public beta for Viigo Tango.

    O, I'm a private tester so I didn't know. Sorry, I don't know of any other programs.

    There's an application called BerryTunes that allows you to listen to streaming internet radio and streaming audio podcasts. It comes preloaded with a variety of channels and allows you to add your own as well. There is a free trial so you can test it out and see it it's something that would be usefull to you. It can be found here in the Shop on Pinstack:

    That's a media player, xplayer is free but you have to buy the streaming radio

    I'll keep an eye out, but just for the record, it's not a reasonable option to just use opera mini/ bb browser to download 20mb audio files manually, right?
