Pioneering Podcaster Working On New Podcast Client

Feb 20th, 2008 | By | Category: General, Podcasting Software

Podcasting pioneer Dave Winer is working on a new podcast client as part of his FlickrFan project.

FlickrFan is a a platform for uploading and downloading Flickr images and viewing them on an HDTV. Even more important, though, it’s an attempt to turn your HDTV into a platform that embraces the Internet.

Yesterday, he announced a new podcatcher for FlickrFan. It lets users manage podcast download subscriptions on the platform.

Today, he added a script that copies the podcasts to a playlist in iTunes.

Winer’s platform is at an early enough stage that a lot of people don’t “get” it. But think of it as an open version of Apple TV, and it’s easier to see the potential for this category of software.
