now the way to change the download directory:

edit the gPodderPortable.ini file within the App\AppInfo\Launcher directory and change the GPODDER_DOWNLOAD_DIR=%PAL:DataDir%\config\Downloads line to something else. But it would be reset on each upgrade.

from a thread in the PortableApps forum

seems to work.

Hopefully other entries could be added including those already listed @TPFC like Gpodder.

Is it stealth?

Is ZiepodOneClicker.dll required?

What about ZiepodUninstaller.exe?

donald on 2014-01-30 21:54

My copy does not have either.

This is a great piece of software, but with one major flaw: it can't cope with https. If the feed has an https url, it won't read it. If the feed is http, but the enclosures are https, it won't download them. If anyone knows of a workaround for this, I'd love to hear it.

Robert's Podcatcher automatically downloads podcasts audio/video files to your computer. It downloads all new podcasts in a given RSS feed, not just the top one. It also lets you load your player with songs randomly selected from your MP3 collection, filling it to capacity.

What's new? 2.1.1

(BETA) A user (and contributer) Frank found that some RSS files use tags with an extra space in them (something I was not aware of). e.g. http://www.thenakedscientists.com/naked_scientists_podcast.xml I added logic to address and overcome this. Many thanks to Frank.

2.1

Addressed error message "Run Time Error 58 File already exists" which involves trying to update the OPML file (where your subscriptions are stored) by manually adding a subscription, while the background service has it open, while it's busy downloading. Also fixed "Catch More" functionality.

links are broken

@Emka
Is it Christmas already?

BTW, links work for me.

Emka on 2012-07-07 17:38

You're right, they're working for me now too -- maybe I had a short connection problem.
(Not Christmas, but summer holidays...)
