Plodcasting is a Podcasting product for Plone. This tool will allow a radio station or community audio project to publish audio files for users of iPodder to automatically download.
Podcasting is an audio-blogging tool, but with a focus on audio. Blogging technologies such as RSS are used to automatically deliver audio content. As new content is published, the RSS Feeds are automatically updated and allow people to download just the content they are interesated in. Podcasting programs like iPodder are capable of subscribing to these RSS feeds and can also automatically add the downloads to a personal music collection. In addition to a basic blog-like structure, this product includes:
  • A modified portal_url tool that generates Coral-Cache compatible URLs. This feature allows a small radio station to offload much of the bandwidth requirments onto a global network of free cache servers, and as a result achieve a potential saving in hosting costs.
  • An enhanced version of ATAudio, that extracts ID3 metadata and MPEG stream information from the uploaded files.
  • An AT References based topic system. Each show object can be associated with Producers. Each Episode can have a number of topics associated with it. Each of these related objects can be used to build its own podcast stream, allowing the audience to pick the shows, producers and topics they are most interested in.
  • Filesystem based storage of MP3 files, keeps the ZODB lightweight.
