gPodder - podcast client

Thanks to popey's blog, I checked out gPodder today. Its basically a podcast client, much like Miro.

The interface is user friendly and fairly simple. You should have absolutely no difficulty in figuring out the functions etc. the most interesting bit is that gPodder allows you to sync your feeds to your account which you can create on the and sync feeds to any other device as well. The list of available podcast streams/feeds is fairly exhaustive. However I would be lying if I said the feeds work perfectly. I couldnt get the Ubuntu UK Podcast feed to work although the same worked perfectly on Miro.

Here's a screenshot of gPodder:

I am pretty impressed with this piece of software. But if there's a choice between Miro and gPodder, I would obviously choose the former.

How to install gPodder :

Its available in the Ubuntu repos and you can install it from the Ubuntu Software Center.

Alternatively you can add the repository for gPodder by typing the following in the Terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:thp/gpodder

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install gpodder

To launch gPodder go to Sound and Video > gPodder Podcast Client.
