Podcast Maker is a tool for Mac OS X that makes podcasting simple. Novices can become podcasters and professionals can podcast with much less effort and time.
ContentCreate your content the way you usually do: with GarageBand, Audio Hijack Pro, QuickTime Pro, etc. Then drag in your content into Podcast Maker. You can drag files directly in from iTunes and iPhoto. You can even import files that are already out on the web. As long as it's a podcast friendly format (mp3, m4a, mov, mp4, m4v, pdf) Podcast Maker will podcast it.
RSSPodcast Maker creates RSS 2.0 and iTunes compatible RSS XML files for your podcast so that you don't have to fuss over the details of getting it right and fully standards compliant.
Enhanced PodcastAdd chapters with images and links to your podcast. With enhanced podcasts your audience will be able to see what you are talking about and visit the websites that you are talking about with a click of the mouse. This is a great way to podcast your lecture or presentation. Podcast Maker is considered by many to be the best enhanced podcast creator. You can't even do this stuff on Windows.
PreviewSee what your podcast will look like at the iTunes Music Store. Preview your enhanced podcast so that there are no surprises once your podcast goes live.
PublishThere are a multitude of publishing options: MobileMe, FTP, SFTP, and local folder. Choose MobileMe if you already have a MobileMe account and want a pain free, zero configuration, one-click publishing. If you already have web hosting, use FTP or SFTP to transfer your podcast. Podcast Maker uploads only new and changed episodes of your podcast.
MetadataDuring the publishing process, Podcast Maker embeds your cover art image and other information into the mp3 and m4a file so that they are visible in both iPods and iTunes. Little touches like this will make your podcast shine.
