Hi,

I'm subscribed to some interesting channels for video and audio podcasts. Currently I download them with iTunes to laptop and transfer them to LMCE Core... Since Core is running 24 hours a day, it would be much more convenient to schedule podcasts download at night.

Any convenient way to setup automatic download of subscribed podcast video and audio files under LMCE (Kubuntu) ?

Thanks in advance,

regards,

Bulek.

Not so much under LMCE, but tversity www.tversity.com works under wine so will run on your core. You can subscribe to your audio and video podcasts and have them downloaded to somewhere LMCE can see.

p.s should have checked this out further http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=10067 doesn't sound as if that's an option.

There is feature request logged for this issue, so at some moment it will be implemented :)

Like a temporary solution, you consider installing one of the podcast fetching tools, like
podget - Podcast aggregrator/downloader optimized for cron
podracer - podcast aggregator/downloader
hpodder - Tool to scan and download podcasts (podcatcher)

and setup it download your *-casts to the place where LinuxMCE can find them and add the invocation of the tool to the cron for regular execution.
