    I would like to know this as well! It always loads itunes
    which is ok, but it then starts playing a track each time it
    adds one to the library.

    I'm using 1.1

    I've figured out how to make it so that iTunes does not
    launch after every file is downloaded (and only 1 file
    downloads from a feed at a time because of this)! Ahh!!

    Here's how (in windows XP atleast)

    1)QUIT iPodder! (Don't just close it, quit it)

    2) Go to C:\documents and settings\USERNAME\Application
    Data\iPodder where USERNAME is the user account you
    installed iPodder under

    3)Open the ipodder.cfg file in notepad

    4)Change the line that says player_type = 'itunes' to read
    player_type = ''

    5)Delete history.txt and ipodder.db

    6)Restart iPodder and recheck all of your feeds and iPodder
    will download all of the videos/mp3s you've missed!

    Hooray!!

    Good luck!!

    Jelmer and others who are having the problem where iPodder
    only downloads 1 file from the feeds:

    I guess they haven't addressed this problem yet (where
    iTunes doesn't handle video feeds)... but if your only using
    iPodder for podcasts/mp3s then you won't need to make this
    tweak, its only for people who want to download video and
    have iTunes installed and are having this problem!!

    Good luck!

    My final decision was to switch to Doppler instead, much
    better podcasting software.
