NAME ^

MP3::Podcast - Perl extension for podcasting directories full of MP3 files

SYNOPSIS ^

  use MP3::Podcast;
  my $dirbase = shift;
  my $urlbase = shift;
  my $dir = shift;
  my $pod = MP3::Podcast->new($dirbase,$urlbase);
  my $rss = $pod->podcast( $dir, "This is a test" );
  print $rss->as_string;

ABSTRACT ^

  Create podcast easily from directories, using MP3's own info.

DESCRIPTION ^

  Creates a podcast, basically a RSS feed for a directory full of MP3 files.
  Takes information from the MP3 files themselves; it needs MP3 files with 
  their ID tags completed.

  The bundle includes two programs in the C<examples> dir: C<gen-podcast.pl>, 
  used this way:
  bash% ./gen-podcast.pl <dirbase> <urlbase> <dir to scan>
  that generates a static RSS from a dir, and C<podcast.cgi>, to use from a
  webserver. To use it, copy podcast.cgi and podcast.conf to a cgi-serviceable
  dir; edit podcast.conf to your liking and copy it to the directory you want.
  Copy also .podcast to the directory you want served as a podcast (this is done
  mainly to avoid dir-creeping), and also drop
  edit also the path to fetch the  MP3::Podcast lib, and call it with 
  C<http://my.host.com/cgi-bin/podcast.cgi/<dirname>.rss
  The name of the directory to scan will be taken from the URI

METHODS ^

new
  Creates the object. Takes basic info as input: the address of the directory that will 
  be scanned, the base URL that will be used to podcast this URL base.
podcast
  Creates the podcast for a dir, that is, an RSS file with enclosures 
  containing the MP3s it can find in that dir. Information to fill RSS 
  fields is contained in the ID3 fields of the MP3 files. 
  Returns an XML::RSS object, which you can manipulate, if you feel  
  like doing so.
