Frequently Asked Questions
1. I can't get any of the interviews to play -
what should I do?
The easiest way to listen is to simply click on the "play" button to the left of the interview date. You'll need to have Adobe Flash installed (a free program). Alternatively, you'll need to have some type of streaming media player installed on your computer to listen to the interviews. It
normally comes with Windows (Windows Media Player) or Mac OS (Quicktime), but if you don't seem to have it, you
can download either for free. We also like
a great free player called Winamp from AOL.
= play in Windows Media player
= play in RealPlayer
= play mp3 stream
= direct link to mp3 file for download
You can also download the file to
your iPod or other mp3 player following the directions in FAQ number
2. When I click on the button or the "Download mp3" text link nothing happens - or it starts playing the interview instead of downloading it. How do I download the interview?"
a) Right click on the button or "Download mp3" text link
b) Click on "Save Target As..."
c) You will then see a "Save as" box. Click "Save"
and be sure to note where it is saving to so you can retrieve the
file after it is downloaded.
Note: If you are using Firefox as your browser, follow the same steps. But instead of "Save Target As", it will say "Save Link As"
3. What is this RSS link and what is Podcasting?
For those of you who use a news aggregator or a MyYahoo personalized page, you can be notified automatically each time a new program or interview is added to Small Business Podcast. In fact, you can use a program to download each interview to your mp3 player automatically so it is there ready for you to listen to anytime you're ready.
