    right now, you have to use the create.bat file, since the GUI has no current functionality, sorry. but the steps you'd take are:

    1. create podcast
    2. create covers
    3. create new entry (repeat for every entry)
    4. compile into 1 XML (backup will be generated)
    5. create PKG (if you want to)

    **reminder**
    this tool is a Work in progress, so there are still bugs. it's open source though if the community wants to make their own changes or adaptations they are encouraged to do so. (written in batch and VBScript)

    I would not know how to help with the code unfortunately, but I would have some ideas for the gui. Now I know this might be too much work and maybe not possible or worth it, but just some suggestions for discussion anyway.

    Ideally you could just point this tool at a folder of mp3s and give it the prefix of the URL they are hosted at, and give it an icon, and then it would fill in the xml all in one go

    So for example, if you wanted it to generate my blindboy podcast xml, you would have a simple gui with browse button, use that to select the mp3 folder and then a you have a URL box, so you would enter "http://xmbmods.com/audio/podcasts/blindboy/", then it would fill in the rest of the links, then have a "icon" button that allows you to browse to a jpg or PNG.

    Optional: you could have extras like icon resizing and built in m4a conversion options.

    I don’t use VB but it’s not much different than c# so I could probably help you out some if you want to make a GUI. If you want to make a prettier GUI you can use WPF with VB or C#. WPF uses XML for the GUI and VB or C# for the background.

    Ideally that would work, but i don't know of any websites that can host files and stream them to the ps3 like that, other than dropbox. but the url can't just be generated like that sadly

    Yeah, there is that. But any server like mine would do it.. And Even if urls had to be filled in manually afterwards it would not be too bad if rest of xml was created.

    generating the XML isn't the hard part, it's working with user input. if possible i'd like them to be able to put podcasts up for free. so having their own server, while not out of the question for some. could be a bit more complicated for others who barely understand CFW/HEN aside from don't use multiman while signed in.
