Podcasting With Textpattern - A Tutorial

Introduction

This tutorial is aimed at those who wish to publish an iTunes-friendly audio podcast with Textpattern. It’s skued towards an audio broadcast, but with a few mods you can rig it for video as well. I wrote this tutorial because I felt that there was not a single comprehensive, easy-to-follow tutorial on the process of creating and publishing a podcast with Textpattern. It should be noted that there are much easier ways to publish a podcast than this (i.e. feedburner and libsyn are two services that make it easy). This tutorial is also aimed at the control freaks: Those who like to have fine-grained control over everything they publish. This document will show you how to generate a proper podcast feed, and how to set up an audio player so that visitors to your site can listen to streaming audio of your episodes.
