I'm not so concerned with the *right* videos. If someone is linking to a video in their blog entry, obviously they would like me to check it out -- whether its their own creation or someone else's. Someone could send me a link in an email, someone could post it on their blog. If I trust them enough to subscribed to their RSS feed I'm interested in the content they're publishing and pointing me to. Getting it as an enclosure is just another way of accessing that content -- what difference does it make if I click a hyperlink in a web browser or suck it down with some type of aggregator? --Josh On Sat, 23 Oct 2004 13:33:52 -0400, Jay dedman <jay.dedman@...> wrote: > > > There are some logical problems with getting movies from any HTML page > > (I've talked about these too many times to recount now), and I simply > > don't believe that it can be done in a consistent and reliable manner > > unless the videobloggers change the way they link to their own video files. > > > > That script may work today, for the entry you're adding today, but I > > highly doubt that it's a solution that works for HTML documents in > > general.
