A podcast is a downloadable radio or tv-style show in a single digital file. This file can be listened to or viewed on a computer or any device that will play an audio or video file, such as an iPod (hence the podcast).
If your iPod or media device is not capable of playing video (or you dont own one!) you can still watch the video podcasts directly using iTunes or on any media player software that is capable of playing MP4 files, such as Quicktime, which is free. We recommend using Quicktime 7.1.3 or later to watch BALTICs video podcasts.
