How to subscribe to specific podcasts without typing in their URLs

I often want to subscribe to a podcast that's not in the official Podcasting directory. At the moment, I have to bring up the RSS feed's address on the screen, write it out by hand on a piece of paper and then type it all in again into the Podcasting application. However, there's a quicker way, involving copy and paste. In this tutorial, I show how to subscribe to podcasts in Nokia's Podcasting system without typing a single podcast URL.

Read on in the full article.

Most podcast websites do also include their URL somewhere on the page, usually an address that ends in .xml

You can find it in the "Features" menu under "video and audio". Here it is:

Also, if you're using an S60 phone and have the Podcasting app on it, you can find all of AAS's podcasts by searching for the keyword "Symbian" and then subscribing to the AAS podcast.

While on the subject of podcasts, I've noticed that some audio podcasts have a picture (cover art), while some other don't. For example, the AAS and all the NYTimes podcasts have one, while the Onion Radio News doesn't. Does anybody know if it's possible to manually assign one, or it's just something only the content provider can set?

E90 too

Mutatis mutandis, I have been using this method for almost two years with my Communicator.

The theme on my 5800 at the moment is Darkstar by PiZero 8-)

The theme going on in about 5 mins is Taieb's "Bright"

Fickle? Me?
