But Kenyatta's tool *is* Bloglines with video. :o) It takes (or will take when it's done) an RSS feed and displays the contents in the browser. I don't want to use a specialized RSS program for videos though. I'd end up having to use fifteen different RSS programs (one for text, one for video, one for audio, one for photos, one for spreadsheets, one for porn and so on). And that's not cool. Eric Rice's blog is the best example for this. Eric has a great blog where he integrates the different media seamlessly. When text is the best option he posts text, when radio is the best he post an audio entry, and when video works best he posts a video entry (Eric's blog is a role model to be followed). Where would his blog fit in? Not in the vog-rss-program, not in the audio-rss-program. I'd just like a link to an enclosed file in my RSS program. Then I could click that link and my computer would do the rest. Quicktime would open if it's a video entry, and winamp would open if it's an audio entry, and Excel would open if it's a spreadsheet entry (and my girlfriend would open the door and scream at me if it's a porn-entry). > anyway, if you know PERL...kenyatta's looking for a little help. > http://www.kenyattacheese.net/braintag/2004/11/15/vogbrowser_functionality_test_number_one.php > theres still somem kinks to be worked out till the vogbrowser is ready. Yeah, I can't do a line of Perl. I can only do PHP. :o) - Andreas -- <URL:http://www.solitude.dk/> Commentary on media, communication, culture and technology.
