Title: Podcast Download Automation
Post by: tradcathjun on March 26, 2019, 01:44:07 PM
I want to automate and schedule a radio program's podcast on my community radio station using RadioDJ. The only problem is the program is two hours long and uses only one podcast feed for both the first hour and and second hour of the program. Is there a podcast downloader that can intelligently download the latest two podcasts and both rename them as hour 1 and hour 2 respectively so RadioDJ can add them as variable duration files and schedule them accordingly?

write a simple VBScript, and schedule it thru windows task scheduler to run weekly, grab the 2 files, rename them, save into folder, then have event in RDJ import them as variable length, etc.

don't let that stop you, either learn how using thousands of free tutorials on the web, or pay someone $5 on fiverr / oDesk / freelancer, etc... to write a script for you...
