Yahoo! Search blog: Video Search To Go!

Yahoo RSS / Video iPod Demo

On a Yahoo Employee blog recently I found a post from Andy Volk, a Product Manager for Yahoo! Video Search. He has a nice tutorial showing you how to use the Yahoo video search to create an RSS feed and how to subscribe to it in iTunes, and eventually transfer it to your new video iPod. Here is a snippet…

“Since I wanted to fill my new gadget as quickly as possible with video files found with Yahoo! Video Search, I realized that this would be a good time to mention that you can use the Media RSS feed from our Web Services API to easily pull in Yahoo! Video Search results as a video podcast with iTunes 6, and from there you can move them to your iPod. (So you can still use this feature with iTunes 6 even if your Video iPod hasn’t arrived yet).”

Wired News: No Porn for You, Video IPod!

Although some have emerged already, according to WIRED magazine (in an interview with L.R. Clinton Fayling, president of Brickhouse Mobile) video pornography will be slow to adopt the new iPod video format. I guess that will leave it to the amateurs to make all the money offering their personal skin flicks to the masses. Here is a snippet from the WIRED article…

To avoid such scrutiny, and litigation or legislation, Fayling said the industry will likely follow three guidelines regarding porn for the iPod: Customers will be age-verified through a credit card, no content will be offered for free and the material will be copy-protected so it can’t be shared.”

If you are reading this and like great sci-fi stories, you should go check out botht the Earthcore Podcast and the Ancestor Podcast, both podcast novels written by Scott.

So it wasn’t a fluke after all. Scott Sigler is the author of EarthCore, the world’s first podcast-only novel. EarthCore generated thousands of subscribers and landed Sigler a print deal, but the groundbreaking novel may soon be overshadowed by Sigler’s newest work, “Ancestor.””
