Is there a specific Mime type or URL prefix (itpc?) for podcasts? For computers that do not have iTunes installed (e.g., a Linux or Windows box without ITunes), is there an automatic way to open a Podcast from a browser, knowing just the URL of the podcast? Or must podcasts be viewed through a podcast listener (like iTunes) or a site (like Feedburner)?

In Firefox, if you view a feed (by going to its URI) any entries that are podcasts will have audio file attachments.

thanks for that, relevant and interesting. It probably responds to the declared DTD of the XML (or somethin'). – Dan Rosenstark Aug 2 '10 at 3:29
