TunesViewer is a small, easy to use program to access itunes-university media and podcasts in Linux.
Features:

* Direct searching, browsing, and downloading.
* Supports itunes-University login, to download students-and-staff-only media.
* Reveals the standard rss-podcast-feed of the itunes-podcasts, for use in any podcast software.
* Includes the option to set itself as default protocol handler, to go directly from the "loading itunes-U.." page to viewing with TunesViewer.

Non-Features:

* Automatic podcast updates, auto-downloads and transfers -- This program isn't a general-purpose podcast manager, for that you can use gpodder or similar. (You can add podcasts to gpodder or other programs by running edit-Copy normal podcast, then pasting into the podcast software)
* iTunes Store -- This will not let you connect to iTunes store accounts or buy anything.

    Stumbled upon this as I was googling podcast manager for Ubuntu. What a pleasant surprise. I downloaded TunesViewer, and it’s great — even though this post is 2 years old.
