Podcast Manager is a suite of extensions for Joomla! designed to allow you to manage and broadcast a podcast feed directly from your site. Features include:

  • Favourite
  • Report

  • Simple management: The administrator component is simple and descriptive, making it simple to properly input podcast metadata
  • Easy file management: Manage your podcast files from the Joomla! administrator interface via a customized version of the core Media Manager designed to specifically process the files allowed by iTunes as podcast episodes
  • Host multiple feeds: With the 1.7 release, the ability to host multiple feeds was added by popular user request, a perfect solution for producers with feeds in multiple languages
  • iTunes parsable: The RSS feed produced is a valid RSS feed and is designed around the requirements to be broadcasted in iTunes, allowing users to share their broadcast with the world
  • Play files directly from your site: Through the content plugin, playing files is as simple as adding a {podcast Title} in an article, a process made simple through the button plugin which displays all the podcasts in the component
  • Statistic tracking using popular services such as Blubrry and Podtrac.

Es macht was es soll, für eine kostenlose Erweiterung in Ordnung.
Ease of use
Nich intuitiv bedienbar, etwas mehr Info oder Hinweise in den Tool-Tips wären super.
Kein Support mehr, Author stellt seit 2016 keine Updates oder Informationen mehr ein.
I used this to: Die Erweiterung ist für eine non-Profit Organisation im Einsatz.

This is a great extension, the best in its kind. It does everything you need.

The only issue I had was more with the little knowledge about podcasting. This extension does not provides you with enough information so you need to get your skills and knowledge as is not simple to get the podcast feed out there. I ended up using Feed Burner... and there are still things I cannot figure it out, but the modules and the podcast are working perfectly in my site and iTunes has index my podcast!

recommend a good tutorial for beginners and the extension will be even better.

I've used Podcast Manager for several clients who have radio shows. It's a great tool to organize and play MP3 files on Joomla sites. Highly recommended.
The player used on this extension has some issues on IE8, but other than that the extension is pretty neat. Need more features though.
Owner's reply: Would love to know what types of issues you're having and what features you think are missing. Aside from the last few months where my day job has been very taxing on my time, I respond fairly quickly to messages sent to me via my website or GitHub. So, feel free to get in touch and let me know what's up.
Podcast Manager works! I initially had some issues getting iTunes to accept the feed but Michael worked tirelessly with the folks at iTunes to solve the problem. I am extremely pleased with the rapid response, professionalism and expertise that Michael brings to the table. He is very open to suggestions and eager to make this extension the best of class.
Podcastmanager works great as long as you dont expect anyone to access it via their browser. When I access the feed using any browser I'v tried the feed does not show the items feed discription. I see that it is missing the tags all together which iTunes egnores all together.
Owner's reply: The component is indeed geared towards supporting iTunes, and when I made the decision to remove those tags from the latest version, I did it based on the fact that when I tested locally with Google Chrome with RSS Subscription Extension (the only browser I had available to me due to being deployed with the US military), the description was still populated.

I have provided numerous methods to contact me via my website (linked from this listing) to report bugs, as well as linking to my website from the Podcast Manager Control Panel on your website, and cannot fix bugs unless I am aware of them. This review is the first I've heard of this problem, and now that I am aware of it, I will fix it.
Having just converted multiple podcasts from Wordpress to Joomla I found this extension very easy to install and straight forward to get a podcast published.

The lack of ability to add a redirect url is a little frustrating however, as I have now lost the ability to use the statistic tracking service I was using under Wordpress.

Overall though, it is a great extension with alot of potential.

Very Nice!

I am impressed with how easily everything installed and that it was so easy to set up! I am no Jooma guru and even I could figure it out!

The only thing that I don't understand (would like to change) is I would like the feed subscription page (and the others that show the various podcasts in a list) to use my template. I use j51_oxygen and all I see is an unformatted page with the files listed...

How can I get the display to be congruent with the rest of my pages?

Thank you!

Owner's reply: If you'll contact me through my website, I should be able to help you. The page should not be unformatted since it is designed to follow Joomla! template standards, so it seems something isn't happening correctly. I'm currently on the move, so I may not be able to dedicate time to support for another week or so.

Love the look and feel

Nice component/module package. Easy and intuitive to install and set up. I especially like the ability to upload from front end.

However I am unable to get my feed to validate and so cannot use it with iTunes, nor Feedburner. This is a drawback for me.
