- How can I download your podcast?
You can either subscribe to our podcast or you can manually download each podcast episode. Subscribing to a podcast is explained in this FAQ. If you want to download an episode, go to the E-Notes page on Alberta Equine ...Online. On the right you will see a section for the "Equinely-Inclined Podcast" with a sub-section called "Episode Quick List". Select from the list (ordered from newest to oldest) which episode you would like to download; the show notes for that episode will be loaded.
If you click on the 'Download this Episode' link, the episode may begin to stream (play) immediately; you may wish to right-click and save the file locally before playing it. Please note the following times for downloading various amounts of data (our episodes are all about 10 MB, more or less):
Connection Speed File Size 28.8k 56k T1 1 MB 7 minutes 4 minutes <1 minute 5 MB 37 minutes 22 minutes 2 minutes 10 MB 148 minutes 89 minutes 4 minutes
So, if you are on dial-up, you might want to start the file downloading and then go do your chores, have breakfast, go for a trail ride... or any number of things! It'll take awhile but you probably don't have to sit at your computer while it's happening!
Remember, you don't have to sit at your computer while the episode is playing, if you are able to burn it to a CD then listen to it on a player while you do chores ...or listen in the truck while you're driving to shows!Back to the top
