itunes css-tricks podcast

  • # October 7, 2009 at 12:04 pm


    recently i decided to download all css-tricks podcasts from iTunes, so i started from episode 1 to 40 first.
    that was enough to burn them all on a dvd for backing them up.

    but since like this week, i cant find the next ones on iTunes, it seems like it only show from #63 up to latest one, but not older ones anymore :(
    kinda sad, i guess i can DL them directly from the website, but it was way easier to do it from iTunes.
    Is it normal ?

    Yeah for now it only goes back 15 or so. I’m creating those RSS feeds in a dynamic way now which is far more efficient for me. I haven’t yet gone back through all the older screencasts and changed the information I need to to get them to work with the new RSS feed format, so I just limited the number shown. This is fairly common practice anyway, since the size of that XML can get pretty big with 70+ screencasts in it, it’s pretty bandwidth intensive to have every single feed reader that checks it download all that data every time. You can definitely still get them just by visiting those pages and downloading them though.

    I’m looking to do the same thing for a site. Chris, are you willing to share how you automate your RSS feed? Also, do you have any tips on best format for video?

    Much appreciated.
