6. Step 4: receiving the podcast

You will need some podcasting software (such as iTunes) in order to receive a podcast.

Having installed the podcasting software, you just have to tell it the URL of the newsfeed. It has to be an RSS 2.0 newsfeed. When using OXITEMS, this is a URL like http://rss.oucs.ox.ac.uk/running/sandbox-audio/rss20.xml where running/sandbox-audio is replaced by the name of your newsfeed.

You can then tell the software to download your podcast.

You can then listen/watch the recording on your computer. If you have an iPod, you may want to sync the file to your iPod. Otherwise, you could copy the file to an MP3 player.
