Rocketboom was probably the first videoblog out there that I listed on my "must see" list, but since then, the list has grown, and I've found other equally great vloggers out there, and I'm starting to shoot my own video. Mission accomplished. (Well, if you can forget my blogging and podcasting...) Pete [View]

Since XSPF was mentioned, I thought it might be useful to generate XSPF output from WordPress for videoblogs (and podcasts) so that any post with an enclosure could be placed in a trackList. I've sent a msg to the wp-hackers list seeing if anyone is interested. In the meantime I've hacked something into place and asked Lucas to look at it. It's not optimal, but I'm hoping a real wordpress hacker might take an interest. Pete [View]

Not to be a picker of nits, but posts on a weblog often appear in more than one place, the appear on the home/main page of the blog, they often appear on archive pages, or category pages, etc. The permalink or 'permanent url' is the correct way to reference a post for now and in the future. You'll often hear that on the list of 'what makes a website a blog' the answer 'permalinks' is pretty high up there. (Followed by 'an rss feed') Back in 1997/1998 we had weblogs (though the name had not existed yet) and we managed to link to each other, but the permalink idea still didn't quite take hold yet. Once it did, things got a whole lot easier. Pete [View]

So, since the tools relies on the videbloggers site to occasionally be run through PlayThisPage: "To make this work, bloggers need to tell Webjay about their blog. They can do that by using PlayThisPage on their web page or RSS feed. Webjay will not automatically refresh its listing, however, so bloggers who add media from time to time need to go back to PlayThisPage. It may be easier just to insert a link to PlayThisPage on their blog, because then users will do the job of making sure that PlayThisPage checks for new items." Can I automate the process by setting up a cron job that requests this url: http://webjay.org/playthispage?url=http://tinkernet.org/ On a regular (daily?) basis?

I wouldn't enclose someone else's work in my feed without their permission, as you run the risk distributing their files/work through your feed, using their bandwidth. Let's assume I normally have about 10 downloads for my enclosures, because just a handful of people use FireANT to subscribe to my feed. Along comes an 'A List Videoblogger' who has 1000 subscribers, they enclose your video, and the feed gets read 1000 times, and the file gets downloaded 1000 times. This may not be a good thing. I'd only use rel="enclosure" when trying to distribute my own work, or if I had permission to distribute someone else's work. Now, will FireANT (or any other aggregator) download the file more than once because it sees it in multiple feeds? (I'm not sure, this question bas been debated for almost a year now...)
