Cloud and Microsoft technologies enthusiast architect in Switzerland RSS 2.0
# Tuesday, August 21, 2007

Since the show number 60, it is no more possible to download directly the podcast from thepmpodcast.com, which is a podcast about Project Management. That could be surprising, but I am a little interested in PMing, without, nevertheless, wanting to be a project manager. So, Cornelius Fichtner decided to publish his podcast only by subscribing to the RSS feed.

Of course, there is still a way to play it directly in the web page using the Flash player, but it is far less convenient.

For me, it is a pity, because I do not have my aggregator every time with me (on the laptop, the tabletPC and the desktop) so when I just want to download a show, I just can't. And I think it is a feature that a podcast must have with some others like a torrent for example. Then the question is : Why limiting the possibility of downloading a podcast ? It may cause less downloads and limits the spread of this podcast, no ?

The perfect examples are podacasts coming from Pwop Production, publishing the .NET Rocks! show and the Hanselminutes one. That are the podcasts I listen to regularly, because of the content and the quality of the shows and they offer many, many ways to download them, along with some other goodies, like the transcripts.

Hello Yves,

You are correct when you write that you can no longer download the episodes directly. For the convenience of most listeners, I have decided to use a simple flash player on the website. For those who are not "most listeners" (like yourself) there is a workaround:

Sign up to the mailing list. Every time that I publish a new episode you will receive an email that contains the URL to the MP3 file. So you don't even have to go to the website... it could not be much easier than that.

Regards, Cornelius Fichtner, PMP

Hello Cornelius,

Many thanks for your comment and for the way of downloading the mp3 files. It is even written on your web site, so I'll sign up to the mailing list.

As a final word, thanks again for such show and continue bringing so useful resources and information about project management.

Regards,
Yves Peneveyre
