FireANT (Aggregator for Video)

May 21, 2005

Entertainment, Technology

RSS is simple and fantastic. First it revolutionized blogging. Then Adam and Dave [either one or both of them – ask them for details, if you dare] used it to make podcasting a reality via iPodder. Now on Thursday, Amanda Congdon (of Rocketboom fame) “announced” the general availability of the FireANT (for Windows) product.

What is FireANT? It is an RSS video aggregator. It allows the user to subscribe to RSS 2.0 feeds that support video enclosures. It has a built in directory of some of the more popular videon blogs (vlogs). You can “subscribe” to the vlog and the video enclosures are downloaded for later viewing. The product also embeds a viewer (Windows Media Player) for easy viewing.

Right now, I’m catching up on back issues of Rocketboom. But I’ve also found a great feed about bicycle racing. Wow. Things are moving fast. RSS really is changing the world of content subscritpion and distribution!
