What are podcasts? Podcasts are audio files published as RSS feeds, using XML file format technology to deliver MP3s to computers or portable music players. Consumers use podcast software on personal computers to collect and monitor updates, called "feeds."

How do I hear podcasts? Download and install podcast software, such as Apple's iTunes or Juice(formerly iPodder), to transfer podcasts to a portable MP3 player. Since podcasts are MP3 files, they may also be downloaded to any computer with audio capability.

How do I subscribe to podcasts? Subscribe to podcasts using the same software you use to download podcasts. You can also use an RSS reader (what is RSS?) to be notified when a new podcast has been posted. To subscribe to our mp3 podcasts, paste this url into your podcast software or RSS reader: http://www.

Need podcasting software? You can download iTunes or Juice (formerly iPodder) for free.

Do I need an iPod to watch or listen to CornellCast content? While you can certainly use an iPod, MP3 player, or other device, it's not necessary. You can watch or listen on your computer.

Do I have to subscribe? No, not at all. When you find something you're interested in, just click on the title of the item. On the page that appears, streaming video or audio will load and begin playing automatically. You'll also be able to download the item from the Media Options section. In case you're wondering, though, the beauty of subscribing is that you'll know when we've added new content without ever having to check the CornellCast page. And, when something catches your eye, you'll be able to watch or listen with a single click.

Let's say I want to subscribe. What do I need? A computer with an Internet connection, for starters. Beyond that, you'll need a tool—sometimes called a reader or receiver—to bring CornellCast content to you. Some, like Google homepage or My Yahoo! are browser-based; basically, they're web pages you can customize to include content that matters to you. Others, like iTunes or Juice, are software applications that you download and install on your computer. They typically offer extra features for managing your subscription. Whatever you choose, you'll still need iTunes or a player like QuickTime to play our video and audio content. When you're ready to subscribe, copy either of the urls below and paste into the tool of your choice: For video and audio: For audio only: I'm still having trouble.
