What is Podcasting?

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Podcasting involves the recording of internet radio or similar internet audio programs. These recordings are then made available for download to portable digital audio device. You can then listen to the podcast internet radio program while you are away from your computer or at a different time than the original program was broadcast.

The term podcasting plays upon the terms broadcasting and webcasting and is derived from the name of the iPod portable music player, the playback device of choice of many early podcast listeners (though podcasting is not directly associated with Appleā€™s iPod device or iTunes jukebox software.) Podcasting is similar to digital video recorders (DVRs) such as TiVo, which let you record and store TV programs for later viewing. Podcasting differs from DVRs in that it is mainly used for audio content (though it can be used to pull any kind of file, including software updates, pictures, and videos.)
