Using content from a Web Browser
To listen to content from the web, make sure you have Quicktime installed
. Then go to one of the talks given by physicians on the "main" tab. You should see a list of speeches, click on the links with loudspeaker or film icons, these will load up audio or video content that can be heard/viewed immediately, upon download of the content. To return from a talk, use your browsers "back" button.
Catching podcasts with a podcatcher
A number of podcast clients (aka "podcatchers") are available, such as iTunes, Miro and Juice. Catching podcasts involves installing one of these applications and dragging the links with the orange icon onto the "podcatching area" in the podcast program. If done correctly, the link will turn into a list of audio or video files that can be downloaded with the catcher, and consumed immediately, or at a later time, or as content becomes available. The advantage of using a podcatcher, is you can subscribe to multiple podcast feeds without having to routinely visit each site and download the audio/video files directly. The podcatcher will do that job for you. All you need to do is keep your machine online, connected to the Internet, and content can be downloaded to your machine as it becomes available.
