I was looking around for a way to play the latest podcast from an rss feed on my WR703N internet radio, saw the podcast-bounce solution on here but wanted something a bit simpler, so I use this in a script to pull the latest audio from a feed

This is an example for the BBC film review podcast. Thought i'd put it here for future reference. Obviously it needs packages curl and grep

Code: Select all

mpc clear
mpc add `curl -s | grep  -o 'http://[^"]*mp3' | head -1`
mpc play
