All of the Wordpress Podcasting plugins I have seen allow you to easily insert a podcast into a post. Is there any way to automate the creation of the post (and the podcast feed) by simply uploading the podcast into a specific directory?

For example I could upload 10 podcasts into the /media/ directory and then it would automatically create a post for each of the 10 files I uploaded. Ideally it would take the information from the ID3 tags.

The key factor here is not having to do anything in wordpress after the initial setup.

Sounds like a good plugin idea :) – Paul Sheldrake Aug 24 '11 at 9:48

I've created a very basic plugin for that now.

Let me know what you think or if you have any questions.

Thanks Paul. Not sure when I'm going to have the chance to try it out but I'll let you know when I do. – matt Apr 11 '12 at 18:59
