A videocast is a video broadcast, usually live on the Internet. Often considered a video podcast, several news publications or journalists release videocasts as an updated feed. Some businesses find this method to be a great form of advertisement as it is low cost and easily shared. Just about anyone can create their own videocast as it is incredibly simple to create and upload material. Downloading them is exactly the same as downloading a podcast, just with the addition of visual media.
