Finding a Podcast on PSP

Aug 14, 2008
There are many podcasts on PSP available. Some of them simply share information and distribute it to people interested in portable gaming. These podcasts serve as news organizations, sharing audio or visual files talking about and speculating about updates to the PSP, the vast majority, however, take advantage of the ability to download and play quality videos on the gaming screen. Developers of the program PSP Video 9 first created a program that could change videos from computer types like .avi and .mpeg to the format used by the portable gaming consoles.

Once that was done, it was quickly possible to create podcasts for the portable gaming arena. Podcasters began creating video files, changing them to a format readable by the portable gaming consoles, and distributing them by podcast feed. These podcast feeds are subscribed to by people interested in the feed, who download the episodes as they come out.

After the video files are transferred to the portable gaming consoles, they can be viewed whenever the end user wishes, just like the other movies and professionally done videos available for the consoles. The PlayStation Portable has thus been changed from simply being a portable gaming platform to a piece of full featured media hardware capable of playing games, storing information, and playing videos and movies, moving toward a more complex future.

Finding Free Podcast Videos

Anyone can easily find free podcast videos online. There are numerous podcast directories online that can help you find feeds to subscribe to, or you may find a feed that's available from a site you enjoy. After looking through the directories and finding a feed you want to download, subscribe to it using one of the many free podcast clients available.

The podcast client will automatically download a small file called an RSS file, which stands for Really Simple Syndication. The RSS file tells your podcast client when there is a new file, in this case a video, to download. Depending on your client, the program will notify you or maybe even download it automatically. Once the file is on your computer, you'll be free to listen to it any time it is convenient.

Soon you'll be on your way to downloading some of the free podcast videos available online. Feeds are available that publish on almost every topic, from independent news shows to experimental videos, to scientific information. Some colleges and universities even podcast their most popular lectures so that students will have a chance to watch and review from the comfort of their computer chair.

The best part is that these free podcast videos, are of course, free. All of these feeds are easy to find, and the publishers, for the most part, do it simply because they enjoy it, and are glad to give it away.
