------=_Part_970_13942680.1095262693509 Content-Type: text/plain; charset="ISO-8859-1" Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit Comment spam is usually done by an automated spider or robot. I use MT-Blacklist for my MovableType blog (http://www.jayallen.org/projects/mt-blacklist/). It doesn't stop the spam, but it helps you remove multiple instances of comment spam at once. But, I find myself having to manage the comment spam more often, especially as the number of entries on my blog increases. There is another plugin for MT that closes comments on entries after a certain period of time (http://mt-plugins.org/archives/entry/closecomments.php), so for instance, comments would not be enabled on posts more than 2 weeks old. This might be a decent solution for some people.

What it doesn't seem like they're thinking about is empowering those who are already doing this, such as contributing to some of the things we're doing here, or other people from indymedia and elsewhere are doing. It also doesn't seem like they're addressing some of the technical concerns (yet, I hope) that would create an emerging conversational system -- things like syndication/aggregation, comment/trackbacks, metadata for searching, creative commons licesing, etc...

Yes, their stuff is really gimmicky at this point, and I hope that will change once they get their footing. It will partly depend on the talent they recruit and how much control/constraints they exert on the content that those people produce. Regardless, I think there is room in this medium for all sorts -- independent and corporate. At this point, I'm more interested in the implementation.

To me, content is less important. Maybe that's because I'm not actually an active videoblogger at the moment (but as Adam Curry has shown, this is where "users and developers can party together" :-) I believe there are a million creative people out there who can make great videos! That will happen and people will watch if we can make it easier to publish and distribute video in this format. Video production is getting easier all the time (equipment is cheaper, etc), but, the barriers for distribution are getting higher all the time -- there are now only a handful of companies that control almost everything that goes on TV. So, a lot of us want to use video to communicate, tell stories, etc, but most of us don't have access to an outlet for distribution. However, the web is fast becoming this distribution channel that is open to all -- big companies and creative individuals alike. People have been talking about this for a long time, but its only now starting to come together. Blogging is a natural fit because it has built in tools for relatively easy publishing and distribution based on open standards (RSS, etc). Plus, the very nature of the Web makes it possible to spread ideas far and fast -- links, comments, trackbacks, searches/meta-data, pinging/notifications, etc...

A new version of Vipodder is available at http://www.vipodder.org Vipodder.002 is written in Perl and based on Dave Slusher's get_enclosures.pl. Vipodder.002 will download audio and video files from RSS 2.0 feeds with enclosures. It will make iTunes playlists for the audio files, and Cellulo playlists for the video files. Cellulo can play any format supported by Quicktime. Requires Mac OSX, Cellulo 2.0.0 Beta, and a few Perl modules as described in the INSTALL section of the script. Vipodder is licensed under GNU GPL.

Couldn't you have it look for video files in the blog entry -- not the HTML page of that entry's permalink. That's how Brandon Fuller's MT-Enclosures plugin works for MovableType, more or less. Maybe I'm misunderstanding how Pings work? But, if the blog is publishing an RSS feed with full entries (not excerpts), then you could probably scrape the <description> of each <item> and look for links to video files that you would translate into a new feed with enclosures.
