While some video feeds can be found by visiting the

site that hosts them, many more are easier found by

visiting a directory of podcast videos. These podcast

video directories maintain listings of podcasts that have

been submitted to them. They may sort the list

according to region, category, and popularity, helping

visitors find exactly the type of feed they are looking

episodes about technology news. Some video feeds are

experimental podcasts, created by designers interested

A directory of podcast videos can help anyone find new

and interesting podcasts to subscribe to, and it can also

help podcasters advertise their feeds. Rather than

relying on word of mouth advertising and people

stumbling onto the feed, a directory makes it easier for

listeners to find the feed. Directories play the role that

early search engines did, maintaining a list of a

relatively small group of net addresses that otherwise

would not be found.

After looking through a directory of podcast videos and

finding a feed that is appealing, it can be subscribed to

by using a podcast client. A podcast client is a computer

program that checks the RSS file that stores the

information about the feed and downloads the video

files that the video podcast links to. The file can then be

watched by the user on their computer whenever and as

many times as they wish.
