RSS feeds, podcasts and audio downloads
What are RSS feeds?
Content is sometimes made available via RSS (Really Simple Syndication or Rich Site Summary) feeds. RSS allows you to be alerted when your favourite websites have been updated with new content (without having to check them manually) in one convenient place.
How do I start using feeds?
The first thing you will need is an RSS reader. This is a piece of software that automatically checks feeds, downloads any updates that it finds, and allows you to click directly through to the content that you want. Web-based RSS readers let you access feeds from any computer, whereas desktop-based readers only run from the computer on which they are installed.
Here are a few RSS readers to get you started:
(Note: You can enable website specified stylesheets for feeds in Internet Explorer: Tools > Internet Options > Content > Feeds (Settings) > Advanced: untick ‘Turn on feed reading view’).
Once you have installed or signed up to an RSS reader, you simply need to decide what content you want to subscribe to and receive.
You can subscribe to this podcast feed by copying and pasting the following URL into your RSS reader:
Subscribing with Apple iTunes
- Open iTunes.
- Click on the ‘Advanced’ menu item and select the subcategory ‘Subscribe to Podcast…’.
- A window will appear, into which you need to copy and paste in the following URL and then click on ‘OK’:
iTunes will connect to the podcast and you can begin downloading (click on the arrow to the left of the podcast title to expand the menu and show all of the podcasts).
You can always access your podcast library by using the left-hand Library menu pane in iTunes.
We will also be adding instructions and support for more media players.
Please contact us on email@example.com if you have specific questions.
