README.md

Podcast is a simple library and command line utility for creating podcast files from a directory of mp3 files.

Podcast will examine mp3s, extract metadata from ID3 tags, and build an RSS file which can then be podcast clients to download the mp3s.

To build and install ruby-podcast

You'll need to install the Ruby mp3info library installed before podcast will work:

gem install ruby-mp3info

Or you can grab ruby-mp3info here:

http://rubyforge.org/projects/ruby-mp3info/

Then download and unzip ruby-podcast:

cd ruby-podcast
gem build podcast.gemspec
gem install podcast-*.gem (this may need a sudo prefix depending on your ruby setup)

Usage

Once you've installed ruby-mp3info and podcast you should have a command line utility you can run on a directory of mp3 files:

% podcast --dir my/mp3/dir --out podcast.rss --title "Title" --description "Description" --link http://mypodcastserver/

Please note

This used to be hosted at http://podcast.rubyforge.org/ However, that version no longer works with newer versions of Ruby.

I (https://github.com/boncey) have made changes so it to works and after getting no answer from the author or via the list on rubyforge have decided to upload my version to https://github.com/boncey/ruby-podcast

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
