Downloading
« on: 16/07/2006 12:18:10 »
I subscribe to the show via iTunes, and lately, for some unknown reason, every day iTunes is automatically downloading an old show from 2005. I've heard them all so I don't need the weighty downloads every day.

I thought I might cure it by unsubscribing and resubscribing. I notice that there are two versions now -- 'The Naked Scientists' and 'Naked Scientists Enhanced'. What is the difference? I must say I don't fancy having to go through the process of deletintg all the old shows from my iTunes list, so I subscribed to the 'Enhanced' version which has only two shows.

Dear Roy

I've no idea what iTunes is up to. It should download only new content.

The enhanced podcast is a new thing we've recently introduced. It's a chapterised version of the show - it enables you to jump to different parts of the programme, and contains pictures to support the audio. You do, however, need iTunes to view / listen to it, or you can open the files with quicktime.

Best

Chris

Eeeek! I subscribed to that 'enhanced' podcast on iTunes three weeks ago and haven't received a podcast since then. I thought the team might have been on their hols, but I've just been back to iTunes and looked for the 'regular' show and found I've missed three bloody episodes!

What's the deal Doc?

I really do think it's a bit of a rum deal ending both Big Bro' and Naked Scientist at the same time. What a wrench!

Hurry back soon, Dr Chris and the gang!

Dear Roy

your prayers will be answered - we're back from this Sunday, and then every night of the BA festival next week, so a bug bonus.
