    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 used it for my first podcast application, really easy to set up and use. Sadly, it requires all files to be on the same host, and hosted diskspace is expensive. I had to find another solution that let's me link to files remotely (Amazon S3 in my case). I would come back to Podcastgen if they add this feature, hence the not quite five stars.
