10.4: Easily subscribe to non-iTMS podcasts via Safari Web Browsers
While many podcasts can be found in the Podcast Directory of the iTunes Music Store, some, for whatever reason, may not have a presence there, or there may be other versions of a podcast that you may wish to have in iTunes. iTunes has a convention to deal with this, in the form of the 'Subscribe to Podcast...' option under the Advanced menu item of iTunes. This allows the users to provide a URL for an XML file to subscribe to.

While this works, it's often tedious to find the URL of the feed, copy it, and then paste into the box. Of course, Safari has a more convenient way to do this -- the built-in RSS reader. The RSS reader, found in Safari 2 and higher, provides a small link on the right-hand side of the page under Actions called 'Subscribe in iTunes.' Click it, and the feed appears in iTunes as if you had hit the subscribe button in the iTMS.

(I originally posted this as a tip on my tech site, Senseotech, but since many of my subscribers aren't using Safari or OS X, I figured it would be more pertinent here.)

Or you can just drag a link to the podcast into the iTunes window.
