I'm kidding. I'm not very familar with Podcasts, but are they just like .mp3's? You could try SoundOpen() SoundPlay, etc, or even try using Bassmod.dll. Edited by SwiftBurns

Do you even know what a podcast is? Is it a RSS- or Atom-feed with a link to the location of the mp3 (or someother format). Find some way to read the feed and then InetGet() and _SoundPlay() the file and you're done :P

I believe .m4u is a playlist, how big is the file? do you see any text if you open it with SciTE or notepad?

m4a is a completely different thing, that is a sound file but _SoundPlay() will not work since it only seems to use the splitters you get with Windows. I can't say for sure how to play it but I would bet a cookie on that wmp.au3 would work, give it a try
