More Than Words

In yesterday's post about my most recent edition of Mużika Mod Ieħor I promised that I'd be back with an enhanced version of the podcast. I've decided to do this mostly because this week's podcast is quite a special one, since it features the music you voted as your top picks of all the releases from 2006.

The enhanced version of the podcast can only be enjoyed fully through any player that support M4A files. The most popular applications for this format are iTunes and the iPod. The audio is the same as the MP3 version. The main enhancement comes in the form of chapters, similar to the ones you get on a CD for skipping from one track to another. Each chapter has an image associated with it and links to related websites. This enables the podcast audience to enjoy the podcast as a multimedia experience rather than a simple audio file.

My plan is to start releasing an enhanced version of the podcast every week. I like the format better than ordinary MP3s because I can see something on my iPod when I'm listening to the enhanced podcast and it's quite convenient to get the related links right there in iTunes when I'm listening on my computer.

If you have access to iTunes and/or an iPod do give it a try and please let me know what you think. Your comments will make my taking the extra time to produced the enhanced version of the podcast even more worthwhile.

The RSS feed for the Mużika Mod Ieħor podcast is available here or you can simply click here to subscribe directly with iTunes. Both versions are available through the same feed for now.
