Subscribe to Podcast Tutorial Transcript:
Welcome to the tutorial on how to subscribe
to an RSS Feed.
Before you can subscribe to a Podcast, you
must first have an RSS Reader.
For more information on how to select an
RSS Reader, please watch the tutorial for
Selecting an RSS Reader on our website,
After you have an RSS Reader, you can then
begin to subscribe to Podcasts.
In this tutorial, I'm going to be using
the Firefox RSS Reader and my personal favorite,
Before we begin, there are many different
ways to subscribe to a Podcast. I'm going
to be showing you two of them.
To subscribe to a Podcast in a browser based
RSS Reader, you first have to find a feed.
For example, I'm going to browse to NPR's
Science Friday website.
Most websites that have an available podcast
will have a link to the podcast.
Click on the link and it should take you
to the section of the website where you
can subscribe to it.
Once you find the link to subscribe to the
podcast, left click on it.
Usually, it will take you to the podcast
directory and provide links to all of the
website's available podcasts.
Also, be sure to look for the RSS icon in
the address bar of your browser.
When you left click on that icon, you'll
see all of the feeds we have available.
In this case, the site only has one feed
available, so it immediately displays the
feed and gives us the option to subscribe
to the podcast or listen to previously published
If you click on the dropdown list, you can
select Live bookmarks to have Firefox's
feed reader subscribe to the feed or you
can select an application of your choosing.
For this part of the tutorial, select Live
Left click on Subscribe Now.
Firefox will then ask what you want to name
the bookmark and ask you which bookmark
location to save it in.
Select your preference, then left click
When you do, you can now go to your bookmark
toolbar or go to Bookmarks, Bookmarks Toolbar
and you'll see the feed you've just subscribed
Any time new content is posted to this feed,
you an find it here.
The other option is to subscribe to a feed
using an installed application.
Like I mentioned earlier, I'll be using
Snarfer as my installed application for
the purposes of this tutorial.
So, go back to your web browser, and go
to a site that has feeds.
Again, left click on the RSS icon, then
select one of the available feeds.
This time, click on the dropdown list and
select your installed RSS Reader.
In my case, I'm going to select Snarfer.
Then left click on Subscribe Now.
When you do, it should take you into your
RSS Reading program and auto-fill the Feed
Address for you.
Your Feed Reader should also give you the
option to select your preference on how
you would like the items from the feed displayed.
After subscribing to the feed, it should
then appear in your available feeds list
and show you a list of the items available
in the feed.
Each time you open your feed reader, it
will pull in all new items for the podcast.
This concludes the tutorial on how to subscribe
to a Podcast. Please visit our website,
