    Hi
    I might hopefully get an ipod touch very soon (if i sell my cowon D2) and was wandering if it would be possible to download video podcasts through the wifi itunes store directly from the ipod touch...so i went searching and it seem you cant download videos at all through wifi...so is there any apps that can subscribe to podcasts (i have no idea how podcasts work as i never used them nor use itunes) and automatically download new videos when in a wifi hot spot?

    thanx

    Even though it may not be possible to download video podcasts from the itunes wifi store. It is in fact possible to stream video podcasts from online sources using safari. if you check out http://digg.com/podcasts you will find a selection of video podcasts which can be streamed to the touch.

    (Hey look, search helped, too bad I'm necro-posting, oh well)

    So, I'm trying to do the same thing.
    If theres going to be a lot of problems downloading podcasts, then I guess I could use an RSS feed.

    (Thinking out loud: )

    The only problem with that is trying to keep track of which podcasts you already listened to.

    With the iTunes podcatcher it only shows the ones I haven't listened to since I delete the old ones
    That wouldn't really work with a feed unless you limited it to only showing the newest one.

    PS. I use Google's RSS reader on my iGoogle homepage
