iTunes 4.9 & Podcasts

Filed under: OS X,Software — Erwin @ 1:04 pm

It would appear that the iTunes podcast subscription list is kept elsewhere. At least I did not find it when grep-ing through my home-directory. So there are two options:

  1. Apple is 100% dictating what podcasts you are or are not allowed to subscribe to, by forcing you to go through their podcast directory and storing your subscription lists on their server, associated to your iTunes account.
  2. I missed something because the data is stored in something other than plain text.

I’m leaning towards option 2 because I was never prompted for my iTunes account password, but then where is it hiding?

No doubt others will do similar checks, so I’ll keep an eye out for that and update this post when I see something useful. You’re also welcome to comment with additional info if you have it. 🙂
