    ITPC protocol

    I want to subscribe to a podcast but it uses an ITPC protocol and BeyondPod does not recognize this. I know this is an itunes thing but is there currently anything that will open this on a Q?

    Quick answer: change itpc:// to http://.

    Longer answer:

    There is no itpc protocol. Podcasts use the normal http protocol. iTunes Podcast (itpc) is a pseudo-protocol. The idea is that the browser thinks "I don't know this protocol, but iTunes does, so I'll tell iTunes to open the link." The link is passed to iTunes, and iTunes opens it over http.

    iTunes is not the only program to understand the itpc pseudo-protocol (Rhythmbox for Linux is another), and itpc is not the only such pseudo-protocol (another is zune).
