Default download video podcast or tv

Please Login to Remove!

Besides itunes, what source do you use to download TV or video podcasts?

Share TV and Life Hacker are a bit time consuming. I am willing to pay.

Any suggestions?

i use Miro - free, open source internet tv and video player sometimes but it can be a bit buggy.
I have found nothing better than iTunes for video podcasts (Revision3 stuff & AskaNinja) and movies/tvshows. Most tv shows are offered online from their networks but downloading them is not really legal without playing, but their are bittorrent ways of getting them.

If I understand correctly, how are you getting itunes videos to work on your device? I ask because I would at least take the free stuff from CNN.

I subscribe to about 10 different iTunes video podcasts. Every day, after iTunes updates my podcasts, I just plug in my 8830, start up the Media Manager, choose all the new podcasts, and click "copy down." The Media Manager asks if I want to convert for optimal playback, I click OK, and I wait 10 minutes while the pathetically inefficient Roxio software converts the videos and puts them on my media card. I then watch them all on the train ride home.

So you are taking them from the itunes module itself. Not a a third party?

Thank you
