Google Reader Is More Podcast-Friendly

Hello and welcome to a new exciting post from Google Operating System. Stafford from Seoul writes to tell us about a new feature in Google Reader:

"I use Google Reader primarily to catch podcasts - it provides a nice Flash MP3 player within the post. Has anyone noticed that you can click on "popout" which will open the Flash player in a small window so you can keep moving through Reader without closing a post, thus stopping the audio?"


Well, I didn't notice the small link, but it's pretty useful if you subscribe to long podcasts. In fact, Google Reader adds the "popout" link next to each embedded audio or video and you can open more than one podcast in its own window. Now if only I could find some interesting podcasts...

Until next time, have fun and enjoy this summer wherever you are!

  1. I'm pretty sure it's a new feature and seems to appear with YouTube videos as well. Not sure if it's the same for other flash stuff?

  4. Try this one, if you're into ambient music: Ansiform Ambient Podcasts.

    Another neat Google Reader podcast feature is that you can click on the "original audio source" link below the flash MP3 player to play the podcast in Winamp (or XMPlay, or whatever your default player may be) or right click and download it to keep.

  5. I'll throw in my hat. I have a daily show for anyone involved in paying for college or personal finance after college, called the Financial Aid Podcast.

    Make sure you also check out KATG's good friend, Brother Love.
