LimeTracker is a free software tool for podcasters. It’s a BitTorrent tracker that makes RSS feeds.

Written in PHP, LimeTracker installs easily on servers and web hosts large and small. All you need is an FTP program and your web browser.

Given a popular HD video podcast, LimeTracker will significantly reduce bandwidth costs. Viewers with P2P-enabled programs like Miro can subscribe to the BitTorrent feed LimeTracker makes. Torrents are backed by traditional web downloads, so delivery is just as reliable.

LimeTracker is made by LimeCast, a part of LimeWire. It’s inspired by Broadcast Machine, a 2006 project of the Participatory Culture Foundation.
