Project description

podcastbackup

Back up podcasts with metadata from a feed URL. Progress indicator and resuming. Hacky, only really tested against FeedBurner/libsyn feeds.

When you run it, you get a directory named after the podcast with a list of mp3 files and metadata.json files.

tree /mnt/backups/podcast/
/mnt/backups/podcast/
├── bestshowever1.mp3.metadata.json
├── bestshowever1.mp3
├── bestshowever2.mp3.metadata.json
├── bestshowever2.mp3
├── bestshowever3.mp3.metadata.json
├── bestshowever3.mp3

The metadata.json files look like:

{
    "text": "This is probably the best show yet!",
    "href": "http://bestshowever.cachefly.net/bestshowever/bestshowever42.mp3",
    "title": "Best Show Ever 42: All The Answers"
}
