I don't want to use iTunes - Do you offer alternative ways of watching The PM PrepCast?

Follow

Yes. The PrepCast is delivered to you as an RSS feed. So any program that can handle an RSS feed with video and audio attachments will be able to handle the PrepCast for you. Here are several options for you

Watch the videos in the Online Member Gateway

Manual Download in Firefox, Chrome or Internet Explorer

Please upgrade your browser to the latest version before trying a manual download:

  • Find the "Welcome" email that was sent to you by the PrepCast right after you signed up.
  • This email contains your personal URL.
  • Open this URL in IE7 and it will format the page nicely for you
  • Right-click onto the episode files and select "Save Target As..."
  • Save them to your hard drive
  • Play them in any way you like

Use a News Aggregator

If you have a News Aggregator account then you can go that route. Please note that some News Aggregators will make your subscription visible to the public, which means that as soon as you add The PM PrepCast to your News Aggregator other people can steal your videos. That is why we monitor all downloads and as soon as your account is accessed from more than 10 computers a day we will pause the account in order to protect you and your purchase.

  • Find the "Welcome" email that was sent to you by the PrepCast right after you signed up.
  • This email contains your personal URL.
  • Copy/paste this URL into your aggregator account.
  • You can now see all episodes in your aggregator and will be able to right click / download the episodes
  • Save them to your hard drive
  • Play them in any way you like

The good thing with the online aggregators is, that you can also use them to listen to the episodes from wherever you have access

Use Juice Receiver

Even though we recommend iTunes for it's simple user interface, some people prefer the independent Juice Receiver.

Use Other RSS Feed Capable Software

There are a number of software tools available that are capable of reading RSS feeds. For example: MS Outlook, Winamp and Real Player all have some RSS capability and you may be able to download the PM PrepCast lessons using these tools. Please refer to the help section of your software to learn how it's done and then use your personal podcast URL from The PM PrepCast as your RSS feed.
