There is more than one way to get free iPod Videos (as you will discover if you check our archives!) Did you know that there are thousands of free quality video podcasts for us to enjoy? Not just educational stuff (which its easy to think podcasts are about) - entertainment - comedy, for example. But before we go further with this, let me just address two issues that can limit how keen people are to use podcasts.
How do I get podcast off my ipod but keep them on my itunes?
I remember now that I’ve seen this question in one form or another on forums etc. So figure I’ll take the time to cover it quickly in a post - for those visitors who are keen podcast listeners and whose iPod hard disk is cramped up from the size of all their the podcasts - listen up:
Just make a playlist on the iPod and drag the podcasts you want to delete to that playlist. Tracks can be deleted from the iPod by selecting them in the playlist and then using the Alt and Delete keys (Mac or Windows).
Another question that I see often asked in the forums is
how do I get rid of podcasts from iTunes that I no longer want?
iTunes is organised so that we can tell it whether to keep podcasts in our library.
1) Browse the podcasts that you have downloaded, and you’ll see a settings button at the bottom of the jukebox window:
2) Click it, and you will see a new window open with several options to help you organize your iPod library. One of these is “episodes to keep”. The iTunes guideline tells us simply:
If you want episodes to be deleted only manually, choose “All episodes.” To keep each episode until you watch it and then automatically delete it, choose “All unplayed episodes.” To automatically delete all older episodes, choose “Most recent episode” or “Last 2-10 episodes.”
Just a couple of easy tips to help keep your iPod and iTunes podcast library well organized!
By the way, in case you missed it, our last post had links to thousands of comedy video podcasts. So clear out your iPod and get ready for some fun!
