See the Windows installer build documentation.

Panucci on Windows

Panucci is a resuming podcast and audiobook player, originally developed for Maemo and Linux, but it’s also usable on Windows.

  1. Install Python 2.6 from http://www.python.org/
  2. Install PyCairo, PyGObject and PyGTK from http://www.pygtk.org/downloads.html
  3. Install the GTK+ bundle from http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/binaries/win32/gtk+/
  4. Install GStreamer (GPL) + PyGSt from http://www.gstreamer-winbuild.ylatuya.es/doku.php?id=download
  5. Add the bin/ folders for both GTK+ and GStreamer to your PATH variable (Win+Break, Advanced, Environment variables)
  6. Grab the source code from http://nikosapi.org/git/panucci/ using Git (or use a snapshot)
  7. Grab panucci-win32.patch and apply it (e.g. using patch)
  8. Grab a Mutagen release from http://code.google.com/p/mutagen/ and extract it
  9. Copy the mutagen/ folder from the Mutagen release to src/ in your Panucci folder
  10. Open a console window and enter: python bin/panucci
  11. Have fun :)

Alternatively, do the first 5 steps from above, make sure that Python is available in your PATH and then download panucci-win32-20091114.zip.

Additional hint: If you want to have proper Windows themeing, copy share/themes/MS-Windows/gtk-2.0/gtkrc to etc/gtk-2.0/ in the folder where you installed GTK+.

MP3 Synchronization

Warning: this section has not been updated for gPodder 3.10.0 and later!

This is some hackery to get synchronization for an MP3 player to work
