    I would like to use a few podcasts on my TreoPro. Any suggestions on programs to be used for this purpose?

    If you mean listen to them, then your best choices are BeyondPod and Kinoma Play.

    I can vouch for Kinoma Play as well. It works really well for playing podcasts.

    kinoma is great for streaming podcasts but does not provide an option to download them in case that's one of the things you're looking for. newsbreak is pretty good for that but doesn't stream

    thanks to everybody. Any of these programs can be syncronized with iTunes?
    I still need to use my iPod in the car, but would like to listen to the same songs on my Treo.
    Any idea on how I could syncro both?

    No no no. Kinoma definitely does allow you to d/l the podcast and listen at your leisure - that's how I generally do it.

    I use RSS Hub to organize and download them at specified intervals. Then I launch them and Kinoma takes over and plays them quite nicely. RSS Hub is a little more detailed and more configurable IMO but Kinoma is nice because it will keep all recent media played in its History file and will pick up with each file right where you left off the last time. Very nice! I can't post the link because I'm a newbie here but it's available over at xda if you search around a bit.

    Also, I listen to Ms. Alli from the above post in some of the podcasts and she is very fun, knowledgable and entertaining. Keep up the good work Alli! ...and please tell Edward to never stop doing that fun/funny weekly podcast. I look forward to that almost as much as my favorite must see weekly TV shows.

    Does Kimona play support subscription (Rhapsody) music like Pocket Tunes?

    You may also want to check out Juice 2.2 for the Desktop. I have it setup to download podcasts and videocasts and use WMP10 and Auto Playlists to sync new/un-listened/un-viewed content to my devices.

    OT: EDWARD is really funny. Sometimes he speaks out of turn though... it is a good thing that Alli, Mickey, Chris are very patient with him...

    He speaks out of turn a LOT!

    I wish I could bypass the activesync connection when my device is plugged in so that I could d/l my podcasts (no matter what program I use) when I'm charging while at school.
  13. #13  
    but if you bypass AS you'd need another connection for data/internet to get the podcasts?

    Well yes, I have an unlimited data plan on my phone.

    I get frustrated sometimes if I forget to d/l a podcast (with Kinoma) at home so that I can listen to it in the afternoon while grading papers, cause if I'm charging at school, all the podcasts I listen to are blocked from school, so if I'm using their data connection via active sync, I can't download diddly.
  15. #15  
    as far as i know you can set as to allow data connections so maybe you can charge via as and still connect with your unlimited data?

    No, but if you can burn/rip the music there's a workaround that also protects you from the music provider going out of business or shutting down their license servers for other reasons.

    Hello all. I downloaded free juice 2.2 for the desktop and it is very nice. I downloaded a few podcasts and can play them on the desktop. I also downloaded the free beyondpod for the handheld and it is great. It can download or stream podcasts via 3g or wifi. It organizes them very nicely and it looks great.

    My question is, how do I get Beyondpod pod to sync with Juice 2.2? I didn't see a new sync relationship setup in Active Sync. There weren't options in Juice to sync with a handheld client. The work around I used was to download with Juice. Then manually add the feed directory to Beyond pod or export the opml directory with Juice and import to Beyondpod. Then download 1 podcast with the handheld with the newly added feed so that Beyondpod would create the proper folder name for podcast storage then drag and drop podcasts from the desktop to the handheld through file explorer.

    Is this as automated as it gets with free software? If so thats OK since free is the best but I just wanted to see if there was an easier way.

    Don't know about Kinoma Play. I took Kinoma FreePlay on holiday to try it out and I got quickly pissed off with its restrictions. It seemed that everything I tried to do on it was met with 'BUY KINOMA PLAY TO PLAY MEDIA THAT USES BLA BLA BLA...' Commercial software's fine. But I hate crippleware that uses the word FREE.

    If you stick to YouTube, music (including services like SHOUTcast), audio podcasts, Orb, Flickr, and Live365 and Audible (if you have subscriptions), Kinoma FreePlay is likely to be all you ever need.

    If you're regularly seeing messages that tell you that you need Kinoma Play, then you're probably a multimedia power-user that needs Kinoma Play. It's a great bargain, and we'd appreciate your support.

    Hi Charles,

    thanks for your feedback.
    However I tend to agree with Slem, even playlists are not possible in the free version.. I would not consider that to be power user stuff..
    In the end I went back to the build in media player cause of the same reasons slem posted.. Kinoma free was just too kripled for me.. and I dont consider my self that much of a media power user..
