You might be able to do this with Quicktime Pro in the save-as options. I don't have pro, so I'm not sure exactly. Most podcasts are not DRM'ed so it shouldn't be an issue, But I do know that iTunes store DRM will play in Quicktime.
I have an iPod Shuffle. I subscribe to several video podcasts that I'd be happier just getting the audio of (for example, stand-up comedy podcasts -- who can't envision the smoke filled club, stage and microphone?)
Is there any (simple) way to grab the audio from these downloads so I can dump them on my Shuffle?
Many thanks in advance. ~ Cyndy
