Description

Has anyone modified the atom feed to point to the actual files for download? It would be nice to have the feeds compatible with podcatchers. This would work best with audio and video feeds.

A quick web search turned up https://github.com/sebastiansam55/gmgpodcast. It's quite old, but could be somewhere to start?

It should be possible to add the original file reference (media.media_files.original) to the atom generator (mediagoblin/listings/views.py) to make all of the atom feeds work for podcatchers since they usually work for audio and video.

Replying to thomzane:

For sure, though you may want to use the transcoded version of the audio or video to provide a smaller download than the original file.
