Small new feature Dave and I have just added.

Since Facebook has become hugely popular, and supports the automatic embedding of MP3s in your profile as 'Posted Items', we've put an 'Add to Facebook' link on all new Podcast news items. See here for a demonstration, which results in this being added to your profile on Facebook:

Clicking the play button automatically streams the podcast straight from your profile.

For current Facebook users, make sure you join the official Neowin.net group! And for those unfamiliar with the NeowinCAST podcasts... try them out today!

I think you should be able to import the RSS feed from the poweruser.tv site into itunes, and it should pick up the new shows that way. If that doesn't work, let us know, and we'll see if we can do anything to fix it.

I can't find any RSS import function in iTunes. It looks like iTunes uses a special form of RSS feed, with special iTunes tags and things :/

I found some info here: http://www.apple.com/itunes/store/podcaststechspecs.html

Hope that helps

I'm currently re-working the podcast system, so I'll keep iTunes compatability in mind when I come to working on the feed generator.
