Automatic Podville!

UPDATE: We've been added to the iTunes Music Store! If you use iTunes 4.9+ and would like to subscribe to Automatic Podville, just click here and wait for iTunes to open, then click the "subscribe" button on the page it loads.

Automatic Vaudeville is proud to introduce Automatic Podville, our latest endeavour. Automatic Podville is one of those newfangled podcast thingies, which basically means it's a short radio program produced by us which you can download and listen to on your computer or portable music device, like an iPod. Each week we'll deliver movie-flavoured hilarity straight to your virtual "door"!

Here's how it works: if you use a recent version of iTunes (that'd be iTunes 4.9 and up, or any other music program that supports podcasts, or just an RSS reader), you can simply subscribe to Automatic Podville and each week iTunes will automatically download the latest episode, which you can listen to right then and there, or transfer to your magical music machine.

If you don't use a recent version of iTunes or other compatible player, you can simply download an MP3 straight from our server with the provided link, and add the file to whatever music library you happen to be using.

So why not get right down to it? Our inaguaral podcast deals with the excitement and glamour of "Awards Season," from the recent Golden Globe Awards to the upcoming Oscars.

If you use iTunes 4.9+ and/or have an iPod click-wheel or up (like an iPod nano, an iPod photo, or iPod video), you'll want to subscribe to the Enhanced Podcast, with pictures and chapter markings and stuff. Select and copy this link:

Head on over to iTunes and click on the "Podcasts" thingy on the left-hand sidebar thingy. Then go up to the "Advanced" menu at the top of the screen and click on "Subscribe to Podcast..." Now, copy the link you just copied into the window that pops up. It's that easy!

If your music player doesn't support Enhanced Podcasts but you still want to subscribe, select and copy this link:

http://www.autovaud.com/podcasts/podcastMP3.xml

Now, if you're using iTunes 4.9+, head on over there and click on the "Podcasts" thingy on the left-hand sidebar thingy. Then go up to the "Advanced" menu at the top of the screen and click on "Subscribe to Podcast..." Now, copy the link you just copied into the window that pops up. It's that easy!

If you're not using iTunes, you'll have to consult your music program's documentation. And if you're using an earlier version, see below.

And if all of this makes no sense to you whatsoever...

Right-click (or control-click if you're using a Mac) on this link and choose "Save Target As..." or "Save Link As..." or "Download Link to Disk" to download our first episode. There you go!

We hope you enjoy Automatic Podville and we'd love your feedback. Write us at autovaud at gmail dot com (sorry, we have to spell it out to avoid spam), and if you enjoy the podcast, hey, why not pass it along to your dear friends?

We'll be seeing you... in cyberspace.

Downloading the latest podcast on iTunes - ok. Downloading the first five - not so much.

Can you clarify what the problem is? Are you subscribed to the podcast or are you trying to download them straight from the music store's Automatic Podville page? If the latter, then try the former (just click the "subscribe" button).

When subscribing to: http://www.autovaud.com/podcasts/podcastAAC.xml
in iTunes podcast six can be downloaded but clicking the "get" button results in an unhappy exclaimation mark for the first five. They can be downloaded manually from your webpage URLs however.
