Re: [videoblogging] vogfeed

I agree — your solution is a good idea.

I like that it gives the author more control over what they would like
to include as an enclosure in their feed. What we need is a good
plugin for popular blogging platforms (MovableType, Blogger, etc), and
widespread user adoption (not so easy). The only thing that bothers me
in that respect is that the solution relies on the user having some
knowledge of HTML and to slighlty change their normal behavior. That
is not to say that people won't adopt it…

What would really help would be something in the authoring interface
that allows users to "add enclosure" by either uploading a file or
entering a URL. Then it would write the HTML for them to copy and
paste into their blog entry.

I'd be happy to work on a MovableType plugin to look for
'rel="enclosure"' in the blog entry and add an enclosure to the RSS
feed. I think it could be done rather quickly by modifying Brandon
Fuller's MT-Enclosures plugin. Not sure how to extend the MT authoring
interface, but could figure it out I'm sure.
