I was asked by the developpers of gPodder to ask this question here hoping
we could get an answer that would help fix gPodder.
Anyway, the problem is that the video podcasts show up as normal audio
podcasts on the iphone and touch, as simple as that. It's not that they
played as video. In fact, if the video files are transfered using
gtkpod, they will play fine (although they appear with a weird name, and the
icon of the podcast rss is missing), but not if they are being transfered
The developpers have little experience with the new itunesDB so they thought
that someone here would be able to help.
If you want to give it a try quickly, you can use this video podcast rss
(it's good music too!): http://www.cbcradio3.com/podcast/video/iTunes/
