PenguinTV on the N800

2 10 2008

Just noticed PenguinTV in the Maemo Extras repos and thought I’d download and try, becasuse when I visited the website 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.

Awesome! I knew there was a reason I brought my N810 to work today.

Noticed there was an update for PenguinTV in the Application Manager, but since installing the update, when I open a feed, I can return to the list of feeds. Which is bloody annoying. Going to totally remove and reinstall to see if it fixes it?

New update to PenguinTV tonight which fixes the return to feeds problem, YES 🙂
