Free Podcasting Software to Publish Podcasts

Podcasts are basically news feeds that have multimedia file enclosure such as an MP3 audio file, a Windows Media Video (WMV) file, a QuickTime MOV file or an MP4 video file. Originally named because one could use an iPod to listen to a podcast, you can, in reality, listen to a podcast using any computer and a news feed reader or aggregator.

Some of the podcast publishing software below allow you to record a podcast from within its interface. The software will then create the necessary RSS files and MP3 audio enclosure and publish it to your website for you. Others require that you have already created your MP3 audio file, using perhaps one of the free audio recording and editing software around.

Commercial podcasting tools like ePodcast Creator, that handle everything for you from recording to publishing, are not listed below.
