The Podcasting Plugin for Movable Type allows users to easily link to and include MP3 at any URL in their Movable Type blog and to manage those podcasts as assets within Movable Type's asset management system.

Once a podcast is in Movable Type's asset management system one can then use Movable Type's default template tags to encode podcasts as enclosures within RSS and Atom Feeds.

## Features

* Link to any podcast on the Internet. All you need is a URL.
* Let the plugin automatically extract the content type and content length of the podcast being linked to.
* Automatically embed a streaming, flash based MP3 player into your posts to allow your readers to listen to your content easily.
* Manage podcasts as assets within Movable Type's asset management system.


Movable Type versions: 4.3
