Rhythmbox Replacement

CentOS 4 Comments

Hey Y’all,

I though I would resurrect a long dead mail chain.

I’m looking for a good replacement for Rhythmbox. I need a pod catcher to catch podcasts and download them to my HD where I can then move them onto my mp3 player that I take to work every day.

I don’t need a new mp3 player so don’t suggest VLC. It is not able to download podcasts.

I’m in the process of provisioning my new CentOS 6.6 x86_64 machine. I
have gpodder 2.19 installed on my CentOS 6.6 32 bit machine but have managed only to fail miserably at getting gpodder installed on my 64 bit machine.

I see that I started this mail chain back in 2012. There was no solution then. Does the horizon look any different now?

  • I gather from the sound of crickets chirping that there is still no viable solution for a CentOS 6 compatible pod cast collector that is even close to being up to speed.

    I’ve got gpodded 2.19 on my 32 bit machine. I eventually got gpodder
    2.15 installed on my 64 bit machine after several hours of arm twisting. Both are hopelessly out of date, but they work for my purposes.

    Does anyone know if CentOS 7 has an alternative to Rhythmbox in the repos? Does the version of Rhythmbox that comes with CentOS 7 allow one to easily add and/or remove feeds without having to manually edit an obscure configuration file? The one that’s packaged with CentOS 6 does not.

    OK – so I use podget. It’s a bash script and it does exactly what I want.

    There’s no package as such, but google knows where it lives (on sourceforge).

  • Hey Bob,

    Thanks for the tip.

    I got podget from sourceforge. Very interesting. I’ll enjoy studying the script. I was thinking about writing something in perl to collect my podcasts. Maybe I’ll take this as encouragement to got on it.

    It’s shameful that CentOS does not have anything in the repos that’s even close to being up to speed.
