Can't find mp3 link for the audio file "beginner lessons".

Post by Feba » Sat 06.07.2008 9:30 am

http://www.thejapanesepage.com/podcasts/beginner_1 ; if there is an mp3 link I have somehow managed to completely miss it. Why not have a nice simple "Download mp3" graphic or line next to the browser player?


Unless you intend to keep people from downloading the mp3s, which is pretty silly :D I mean, it's easy enough to use some tools (mainly firefox plugins) to find out where the file is; I used adblock plus to find them easily and then just used wget to download them. And even if you find a way around that, there's always the good old "hold the microphone up to the speaker" tactic :wink:

I was planning on adding an 'itunes' link as soon as it was approved, but I haven't gotten an email from iTunes yet. It may be there now--I'll check.

But I'll add a link to the files too.

If you're planning on setting it up as an iTunes channel/feed, could you set up an RSS feed while you're at it? Specifically for the podcast lessons, that is. I already have the NHK one and a couple others set up to automagically download the attached files, would be nice to be able to add in this one too.

Right here:
http://www.thejapanesepage.com/audio/podcasts/rss.xml

This is my first podcasting adventure. I'm not sure if I submitted it correctly to iTunes. It has been over a week, and I haven't heard from them... I added the RSS feed to the 'submit podcast' link in iTunes. Any advice from iTunes podcasting gurus out there?

I added a download link to each page. (did the same for Yuki no Monogatari too)
