Making the SMIL file is not a problem (my pingback client does this already). The problem is getting the right videos from peoples' entries. You can't do that with the HTML people are writing today - I've argued the use of rel attributes before (and on the audvidsyn list). My first considerations in "Making a Case for Pingbacks": <URL: http://www.solitude.dk/archives/20040907-1202/&gt; Updated thoughts in "Looking for Testers": <URL:http://www.solitude.dk/archives/20040918-2125/&gt; And the use of rel attributes to describe enclosed content: <URL:http://www.solitude.dk/archives/20041026-1300/&gt; When you have bloggers use for example correctly defined rel attributes to mark up the videos it's possible to create video playlists of for example the videoblogging.info list. Not that it's a good idea to make such a list. With a list like the videoblogging.info only the videos a visitor haven't seen are important. Making a playlist of the entire list is just a waste. :o) > the only problem i have is the dependance on qt, but if nobody else > cares i will shut up about it here (maybe i will rant about it on my > site instead). SMIL support in different players vary just enough so that you have to server them different SMIL files anyway. -- <URL:http://www.solitude.dk/&gt; Commentary on media, communication, culture and technology.
