Accessing Content

Why capture a podcast if no one can view what you’re working on? All published podcasts are kept in the Podcast Library. This library is viewed from the built-in web portal installed with Lion Server when you enable the web service.

Viewing Content

To access a podcast episode, open the default web portal installed in Lion Server. Then, click on the Podcasts icon.

At the Podcasts window, you will see all of the podcasts that you have access to (Figure 7-7). Each user will, by default, own podcasts they create. If the permissions for new podcasts was set to Podcast Owners, then other users will, by default, not see each others podcasts. If you uploaded podcasts but do not see any, click on the lock icon, and when prompted, authenticate with the same credentials used to create your first podcast.
