If an error message comes up when you click on your lecture podcast, the default program your computer uses for playing audio files from the internet may be incompatible. To download your podcast:

  1. Right-click the link (or Control+click if you are using a Mac).
  2. Choose Save target (or link) as from the menu to download the podcast to your preferred location on your computer.
  3. Double-click on the downloaded podcast to play in your computer's audio program.

You can also download free iTunes software and subscribe to the podcast for your lecture, as all University of Otago podcasts will play in iTunes.
