Video #0016 – Cool Find: Air Video HD: stream your downloaded anime, with perfect subtitles!

In this episode, we take a look at a really cool app for iPhones, iPod touches and iPads, Air Video HD. Air Video HD lets you stream video files over your home network from your computers, media centers, network attached storage, etc. It automatically transcodes the video if needed, and supports pretty much every video […]


Cool Find: VLC Media Player for iOS (Updated: Also for Android too!)

Update: DJ City of TJX points out that VLC is available for Android too! Unfortunately it’s still labeled a “beta” but from what I’ve heard it works quite well. And hey, it too is free!

Greetings. First of all, yes we did go to Anime Expo, and we returned safely, albeit not in perfect health […]


Big news for Apple TV owners: You can now haz your Crunchyroll! (Updated)

Updated with a note clarifying that the overscan bug I mentioned is not a problem specific to the Crunchyroll app, but affects all content played through the Apple TV

Big news if you own an Apple TV, Apple’s answer to the set-top box: you can now haz your Crunchyroll on it!

Crunchyroll is, in our […]


Looking for some cheap anime? Try a thrift store! (or flea market/swap meet/garage sale/etc.)

First, apologies for the lack of content recently. Due to a variety of factors (sudden change in co-hosts, unstable work situation, etc.) I haven’t had a chance to produce much new content lately. But that is about to change, as we swing into the summer con season. In fact I have a new video episode […]


Cool Find: Crackle is yet another way to watch anime for free

Today’s anime fans are pretty damn lucky. Gone are the days when you had to wait time immemorial for (insert name of random anime distributor) to dole out the next DVD of whatever anime series you’re following, which of course you’d have to pay like $30 or more for. And if you suddenly got the […]


A First Look at Neon Alley

One of the many announcements that we heard at Anime Expo (although they actually announced it a few days earlier) outed Neon Alley, a new 24-hour anime video service from Viz Media. At the time all we knew of the service was that it would be debuting on a “major game console,” and will show […]


The Fall 2012 Anime Season is upon us!

Even though it’s still ridiculously hot here at Otaku no Podcast HQ, we must still acknowledge that, yes, fall is upon us. Which, for many, unfortunately means it’s Back to School time. (DO NOT WANT!!) But you can at least console your soul (and fill time which would otherwise be spent staring at empty space) […]


Rejoice, PlayStation3 owners: The Crunchyroll app for PS3 is here!

Crunchyroll is, in my not so humble opinion, one of the best things to happen to the anime community (and the anime fan). Gone are the days when you had to agonize over whether or not you felt like buying the (highly priced) first volume of an anime DVD series, only to find that, ehh, […]


How to Subscribe to Otaku no Podcast Directly on your iOS or Android device (Updated)

Most people, when they listen to podcasts, download them on their computer (using a program like iTunes, Winamp or similar) and sync them to their portable device when they plug it in. The main disadvantage of this is that you are tethered to your computer; if you are away from your computer you are unable […]


The Reverse Thieves announce the 2011 Anime Secret Santa project!

The Reverse Thieves have just announced their 2011 Anime Secret Santa project!

If you don’t know what in blazes I’m talking about, go back and read our post about it a couple years ago. But, for the lazy, here’s the Reader’s Digest version: basically, you e-mail your name, blog title and url, and a link […]
