auto podcast feed maker
Has anyone seen an auto Podcast feed maker? (or could code one up?) It’d be great to have a web service (PHP code? then lots of people could install it on their own server) that can automatically crawl a specified web page for MP3 files, creates an RSS 2.0 feed, and allow people to subscribe to it.
Here’s what I’m thinking: let’s say I go to www.djchuang.com/feedme.php, and on the page is a form for me to enter the URL to a web page, like www.liquid-acc.com/mt/archives/downloads/ . Then the feedme.php code would generate an podcast feed (RSS 2.0 feed, with enclosures) of all the MP3s on that page, which can be subscribed to by iPodder. Plus, crawl that page once a day (or when pinged) for new MP3s to add into the podcast feed. Get it? Wouldn’t that be nice?
What I did find on the web recently is www.metrofreefi.com, a robust directory of free wifi hotspots. I tried to get the wiPod directory (download a directory of wifi freespots in text format, which can be installed onto an iPod), but it wasn’t working. I emailed tech support, and they’re allegedly working on it.
[update: this remcaster php script does the job! Thanks Nick]
