Podcast Generator does exactly what it promises to do, efficiently and expertly. The support (yes the free support) is some of the best we have ever experienced. We recommend this product to anyone wanting to generate their podcasts to iTunes. As a matter of fact, we cannot recommend it too highly!
Podcast generator is a powerful, very useful and fairly robust tool. There should be more great software like this in the world. I hit a small snag when I updated my server's OS but I got support quickly that fixed the problem. I'm very pleased.
Un progetto stupendo che semplifica di molto l'utilizzo dei podcast su itunes Continuate così
This is a pretty nice package once you manage to figure it out. At a few points the instructions suffer a bit in their translation to English, but this is not a problem because the meaning is clear. There is a shortcomings in the project as currently implemented that could probably be addressed without making major changes. The box in the upper right corner of feed display invites the user to "Copy the feed link and paste it into your aggregator" and then provides an icon labeled RSS/PODCAST which does not display the required aggregator link but instead dumps out the contents of the file feed.xml. Most users will not know what to do with this xml, and will be confused by it. Meanwhile, they have not been given the promised link to paste into their RSS aggregator. Most of us have been able to figure out what the required aggregator link is, but seeing the xml at this point instead only confuses and confounds newbies. There is not an obvious way to add thumbnail images to individual episodes. This is rather important in our image oriented world. The secret for doing adding thumbnails appears to be to add the image to the podcast's "long description". The long description only appears when the user clicks the "More" button, which is probably the best way to handle thumbnails.
I use PodcastGen to support enhanced learning opportunities to improve ESL students' listening skills. The system is easy to set up, and a distinct podcast feed can be set up for each teacher. Thank you!
