A downloadable tool for Windows

Download NowName your own price

Podcastor is a RSS stream downloader. You can download the install program of podcastor in english or in french. Run the installer and follow the instructions. After install, click on the icon of the program “podcaster” on the desktop.

Copy/Paste or type the URL of a RSS stream in the first field then click “Import” button. The application may apper unresponsive for some seconds (downloading/decoding/importing time). The content of the stream is displayed in the grid. Double-click to select some  items. Click “Download” to download them. They are stored in the application folder (where podcastor.exe remains).

The application has been done with MyVisualDatabase (a cheap and well done environment similar to Delphi). The download operations are made using an external program : wbGetFile (made with PureBasic).

In hope you find this app useful. I made it as a proof of concept (background downloading are is not provided by MyVisualDatabase)… and because I’m a big fan of the podcast “Du grain à moudre” (Hervé Gardette, France Culture).

Now, I’m begging Dmitry (MyVisualDatabase developer) to include the background download natively in MyVisualDatabase.

The sources (CC BY-NC-SA) are available on demand for paying users. You need to have MyVisualDatabase and PureBasic to compile. Or you can only modify and compile with MyVisualDatabase and use the PureBasic exe as-is. It's up to you. 

The downloaded podcasts are stored in the application folder. Right-click on the podcastor icon and select Properties, Shortcut and click the 'Open File Location' button.

Two types of install are provided: one done with Click Team Install Creator and another done with WinRAR (with 'rar' in the file name). Regarding the antivirus software one of type of installer may be detected as false positive. Sadly it's often the case of Install Creator installer (because they are less common). Choose the one is working for you. If none, you'd better think to change your antiviral solution.

Trying to find contact info as I contributed and would like a copy of the source to the Podcaster project.  Should not be this hard to reach the author.

Thanks :-)
