So like Dorek said, we do have a new podcast, this time another commentary. It's good fun, so you should totally listen to it while watching your copy of LoMN.iTunesDownload

One question:Why don't you guys also host your podcasts on Zune? Like, knowing that Swert is behind the thing, I could've sworn you guys would have done so by now, or is it more complicated than iTunes?

We tried getting it on Zune Marketplace, they never approved us.It seems that iTunes is more than willing to accept any media, but Microsoft has more processes it seems.

I suppose we could try again, but for now I believe you can still subscribe to the RSS feed through Zune. That's what Swert does.

Well, at least for now we have an exclusive announcement on an old BIONICLE mystery. You should listen now. Erebus will probably post a topic when he comes online, but for now you can listen to the show. Or even if he has made the announcement already as you're reading this, you should listen cause we're awesome, and we cover the topic pretty thoroughly.iTunesDownload

You guys should really see if you can get these on Google Play somehow, so that I could get them directly from my phone...

If I couldn't get it on Zune Marketplace, what makes you think it'd work on Google Play?

I could certainly look into Google Play though, no offense Swert but they have a larger audience than Zune.

Yeah, and I'd be more inclined to listen to these if I could easily get them on my phone without having to download the MP3 files individually and moving them to the podcast folder in my phone's root directory. The same goes for BZPowercast.

Have you tried adding the RSS to your default podcast app as a subscription? That might work to the satisfaction of all those android users, in addition to WP and BlackBerry users.

Looking at the XML, the RSS feed would still make it just as annoying to have to download each individual podcast. I mean, I guess it's a tiny bit easier, but running it that way would still require an internet connection (even though with 4G I usually always have some sort of connection, it still makes it more annoying).

 

If anybody behind BS01 Podcast is familiar with it, the Google Play Music app for Android is a nice example of something somebody on your staff team, or even a member could develop. It has all of the tracks/podcasts displayed, and when you click to play them, it caches it to the device so that you can play it at any time, even without service. I know Shadow Kurahk and I both have experience in developing Android apps, so one of us could potenntially make it. Heck you could even put it on Google Play for $0.99 or something and get yourselves some greenbacks. :P

You don't ask to guest star. Generally if you're a well known and trusted community member of BS01 you are asked. I'm not entirely sure as I've never been a guest star. But I assume if you are trusted and a big part of Wiki life you will get an invite.

Nobody on the active staff actually owns an Android device, so it is pointless to us. Half of the staff have iOS devices, I use WP (which I still sync with Zune) and getting a podcast approved on any new service is a tough challenge to begin with. Again, we never could get Zune Marketplace to approve it.We're sorry for the inconvenience when it comes to our podcast on your service, but the RSS is provided for that.

But the staff make the podcasts for the public. :P Also, I believe if you want them on Google Play, all you need to do is make a simple app, because they don't have a podcast service as a whole. Android apps are quite easy to make, and unlike iOS and WP, it's freeeeee. You should try doing that sometime. :)

"Nobody on the active staff actually owns an Android device, so it is pointless to us."

 

Please note this does not reflect the feelings of the podcast owner (your's truly). Of course we're interested in the general population, otherwise we'd only distribute the podcast among each other. I am interested in more Android compatibility (especially since when I do get a smartphone I prefer a droid). At the moment though my focus is updating the podcast site, so unfortunately it will have to wait a bit.

Ah, that's fair enough. More people will be likely to check the website in my opinion, so I understand that being a priority. Question: Why did you get a new domain instead of doing biosector01.com/podcast?

When it was first set up, it was determined we did not have the harddrive space capable of hosting mp3 files nor the bandwidth capable of sustaining downloads from a single source of that nature. Kraahlix also wished to have more direct control over release schedules, and at the time only I had the FTP passwords (I didn't trust anybody with that information). It's a bit different now with the current host, but it's still preferable to have an alternate site.

Ah, that makes sense. You could always do what I have. I have access to the FTP on any brickcraft.me subdomains, but not brickcraft.me itself.
