[The World is Heavy Metal - Podcast Player]

The World Is Heavy Metal - PodCast player is made for the radio-godmode.org metal and punk podcast directory. It strives to remain loyal to alternative music and fans and as such has few limitation regarding what a music fan is allowed to do in a self produced podcast. At the moment the application is at version 0.1.1, it plays and renders a stream of podcasts that are maintained over at radio-godmode.org. If you aren't indexed it's becaus you haven't submitted your podcast info to us and the instructions on how to get featured is found here: Submit a podcast!

To boost the presence of this garage metal podcast app the great creator 'Oskar Stridsman' has put together an open source release that should if all pans out work on Windows computers.

You can download the zip here: WiHMpodcastPlayer.zip

Unpack the archive where you want it on your disk, then click the README.txt to see further instructions.

Linux is no longer supported in any major way since they don't maintain compatibility with code or programming language/library versions! You can how ever try to make it work on your own.

This is v0.1.1 so there's not much adaptations done to the usage of the podcast app. It comes to you in a archive with the basic python script that you need to double-click or run in a console window after ensuring that the needed dependecies are installed.


You need to install python. This is done in your linux package manager or by downloading for windows/mac at http://python.org. You also need the wxpython gui libraries which can be found on most linux distributions through the package manager, or visit https://wxpython.org/.

You need mp3 support enabled for your linux and foremost for your VLC media player on linux since WiHM player uses the VLC python library for it's playback. So make sure VLC is installed and that you can play mp3 files with VLC. On my PC I had VLC 3.0 installed with development packages and codecs. It was a few month ago but the python class for playback seems to not be around in 2.x vlc..so check out https://nightlies.videolan.org/index.html for the 3.0 vlc download if it isn't around on your linux distribution!

The final thing you need is the VLC python module! This can be installed by finding it in your package manager on linux or you can download it here! Unpack it then run 'sudo python setup.py install'.

News: 2017-03-27, There's been some upgrades to the package that is now called v0.1.1! -Some podcasts has been added to the podcast directory! Also some minor updates to special characters in the RSS has been dealt with. If you want to suggest podcasts to the app make sure their rss accept all user-agents and have a functioning feed as well as a good mp3 header and no fishy image/html addons!
