Just noticed PenguinTV in the Maemo Extras repos and thought I’d download and try, becasuse when I visited the website http://penguintv.sourceforge.net/ to see what it could do, I was very very interested:-
– One-button downloading of new videos and podcasts
– Integrated media player based on GStreamer.
– Integrated search with context highlighting
– BitTorrent support
– Tagging categorization, no ugly trees
– Works well with two feeds or two hundred
– Multiple window layouts, including two-pane “Planet” style, classic, widescreen, and vertical style
– Sync media to external folders or USB devices
– Support for OPML subscription files
– Auto-tuning polling, so that PenguinTV only polls feeds as often as they update
– Powered by Mark Pilgrim’s famous feedparser
– Support for Apple iTunes podcast links
The version in the repos is v3.8 while the website is still only quoting v3.6.
I’ll need to give it a good test via wifi tonight as my 3G connection during the day can be flaky.
