Podcast Recording Tools
Podcasts are sequential or episodic audio or video files downloaded by listeners or viewers. They can be accessed on the downloading PC or transferred to a portable device such as an iPod. Audio podcasts are generally distributed as standard MP3 files while video podcasts may use a variety of formats. They are generally published using RSS or Atom, making them a type of RSS feed, as well as through links in blogs and other Web properties. In addition to usability and cost, features to consider when selecting a podcast recording system include whether the recordings are made locally by your client or via a browser. Do you need additional effects such as musical intros and exits or editability either online or locally? What are their publication feed creation and distribution methods?
