Someone in the 3000/3100 thread posted about podcasting software for the Z, namely KeroPlayer (Google's English translation).

This app (written in Ruby) is super. It can handle a lot of different types of feeds (including video, apparently) and save the podcasts to SD for better storage. It can download all feeds automatically or selected ones manually, and as far I can tell, play them streaming or saved. No extra hassle if you've already got Kino and dmBlogger installed.

Big problem, though. It's in Japanese. So, like dmBlogger, I've made an attempt at a rough translation by working backwards from the Ruby commands and some trial and error.

Once you've installed KeroPlayer (and changed that awful icon), download this .zip file and replace the keroplayer.rb file with mine. Bingo! English GUI!

Feedback is welcome. Enjoy!

[EDIT: New improved version! I figured out more of the settings and errors. Should be complete and 99% perfect now. Also supplied replacement icons.]

After installing all the extra IPKs that Kero Player requires and a reboot streaming Podcasts to my ears have been working great. Thanks for your hard work!
I'm not having any luck seeing any vodcast episodes show up, so I don't know if they work.
Also...
I can see the setting to save to SD but how do I save to SD instead of streaming it?

Thanks.
PS. Super icons!

Never mind.
I realize the the "Play One" button is actually a toggle button.

hi

i would like to try keroplayer but I can`t connect it to the internet. I use wlan through a proxyserver 192.168.17.3 port 3128. I tried to edit http.rb but got various syntax errors etc

can anyone help me with this ?
I guess this is a general problem I have with ruby apps connecting to the internet ...

thanks

Version 0.6 of KeroPlayer is out. (Changelog looks pretty slight, though.) Below is the translated GUI.

As always, let me know if you find anything in need of correction.

I really enjoyed this app when I was using Cacko, but now that I'm using pdaXrom I've been unable to get it going. Most lilkey due to my lack of experience. Anyone have it working under pdaXrom? Any tips?

Installing either keroplayer or the rbconv ipk trashed my Calendar software so that it would not open nor would it sync at all with my XP pc and Intellisync.
Am in the process of trying to install it without rbconv to see if it's the fault of keroplayer or the rbconv.

tombraider, did you ever figure out what the issue was here, keroplayer or rbconv? Anyone using this ap got any hints on a successful install?

Nah, I never bothered to troubleshoot to see which was trashing it. I gave up and am using Corsair instead....which is pretty darn good, actually.
