Podcast Howto

16 02 2008
  • deutsch

Some guys asked me how to subscribe to the new MacGeeks Podcast. I think it’s time for a little explanation how Podcasting works.

In fact Podcasts are normal RSS feeds as the text entries in a blog. The RSS feed is provided by a XML file which lists all postings in a structured manner. The only things special on Podcasts is that the entries (called episodes in Podcasts) are not of type text but instead are audio entries. The content is not directly embedded inside the XML file (as text entries are) but is linked from the XML file to an URI.

Because of that special content you don’t subscribe to Podcasts with your normal feed reader (like NetNewsWire, Vienna or Google Reader). You MacOS X has the right software for podcasts already preinstalled: iTunes.

You can simply subscribe to Podcasts with iTunes by clicking “Advanced -> Subscribe to podcast…” in the menu bar.

iTunes-Podcast

A new Window will open to let you type in the URL of the Podcasts RSS-XML-File. For our new MacGeeks Podcast this is: http://www.mac-geeks.de/wp-content/podcasts/podcast.xml .

Podcast URL

The newly subscribed Podcast will appear in the list of available Podcasts.

iTunes-Podcast Update

iTunes will fetch the RSS-Feed-File and instantly try to load all not already fetched Episodes. It will also regularly reload the Podcast URL to look for new episodes.

MacGeeks Podcast Beta

14 02 2008
  • deutsch

I plan to add a semi regular podcast to this blog and started out with a short introduction. But for all you english native speakers this might not be suiteable as it is only available in german by now.

You can subscribe to the podcast via this url: http://www.mac-geeks.de/wp-content/podcasts/podcast.xml

But as this is still beta watch out for changes in the location or any other related updates.

Your comments about what you think on these podcasts are highly welcome. I also embrace suggestions for themes for the podcast.

QuickLook Plugins for Leopards Finder

14 02 2008

You can enhance the QuickLook feature of Leopards Finder to display a lot more file types. This is done by QuickLook plugins you simply drop into the /Library/QuickLook folder.

I installed three additional plugins to quick look inside archives (done by BetterZip), show contents of folders and color highlight the syntax of certain source files (shell scripts, html pages, perl scripts, apple scripts etc.)

This is what color code plugins result looks like on a shell script:

QuickView Plugin QLColorCode

This is what the content of a zip file looks like with the BetterZip plugin:

This is what now folders are looking like:

easily copy a files location to clipboard

11 02 2008

Some of you asked how to easily copy the location of a selected file in finder to the clipboard. This is a feature of PathFinder but can be setup very easy with Finder + Automator in Leopard (may even work on Tiger).

You simply concatenate three simple items in Automator. First you get the currently selected file from the finder. As you probably don’t want the file location in Apple HFS style (with colons) you have to convert the output. I use the a shell command with sed ( sed ‘s/:/\//g’ )on that and finally put the output to the clipboard. Simply save this workflow as Finder Plug-In in Automator and you have a new context menu entry in Finder to copy the location to your clipboard.

If you messed up your Plugins for Finder you can find them in you home directory under /Users/<username>/Library/Workflows/Applications/Finder/
Simply delete the workflows you don’t need anymore.

[Update:] here’s an archive of the automator workflow. You can unzip it and open in in Automator or copy to the location I mentioned above.
