After Podcasting, enter Vodcasting…
Video Search Beta
This is all about helping RSS evolve to handle all the media types we might want to attach to RSS feeds. Early last month when InternetNews.com asked me about enclosures, I said two things that are worth repeating in this context:
Enclosures are more evolutionary that revolutionary.
That’s exactly why we want to start by building on the foundation of enclosures rather than introducing a brand new format.
RSS is a reasonably flexible format for distributing content. Enclosures are to RSS what attachments are to e-mail.
In other words, enclosures aren’t just for podcasting anymore. If you want to be a video blogger, enclosures should work for that too.
