A QUICK LOOK at our 2006 Irish podcast downloads showed someting we had seen every month. Only one-fifth of our audio files are actually downloaded for use in a player. The rest are played directly on the site, using a computer with Flash or a media player. David Hillis Ingeniux agrees. "That means the term podcasting is basically interchangeable with on-demand streaming, and that’s not what it was originally intended to be".
