Hello everyone. I haven't used Icecast yet but I'm hoping it can help me
with what I want to do.
I listen to podcasts a lot. Most of the time I'm at work I have something
playing in the background. The problem is once one ends I have to select
another to play. Or if they have all been played I can't use the auto next
So what I would like to do is setup a machine (most likely a Raspberry PI
or Beagle Board Black) that has a podcast catcher. It would always
download the latest podcasts I subscribe to and delete the old ones. There
are a few options for this and isn't a problem. I would then like to have
Icecast randomly play podcasts that are in a specified directory and repeat
them 24/7. Once the file goes away it won't try to play it any more.
Since I have about 30 podcasts I sub to it should give me many hours of
non repeats but with in a week I should be able to hear them a couple of
Has any one done this sort of thing?
