With WordPress, if you have Full Text set on your feed options, and your feedreader supports it, then the video will show there too… So…
Jetset also uses the blip TV player and their segments don’t play within the feed either. It is a little annoying to have to open an entire other window just to watch video from a blog/vlog that posts video on a regular basis. Their sister vlog, Rocketboom, does not use blip tv (that I know of) but share the same problem — you can’t watch their video in the feed. You have to open another window outside of your rss reader.
So I have3 Cross-Site Video Syndication Related Questions, in case one day I decide to syndicate myself all over the web:
– Can services like Maven Networks, who provide a tool to simultaneously publish on multiple sites, also provide an automatic handy service that notifies you when your video embeds are/aren’t viewable within their rss feed?
– What’s the point of subscribing to a video channel’s RSS feed if I can’t watch it within my RSS reader?
– Is Beet TV’s/Jetset’s problem incorrect markup or is it a problem for Google/Blip TV to solve?
edit: I understand that the aforementioned feeds (except for Beet TV, who still doesn’t offer a working video podcast feed ugh) are optimized for video podcast subscribers. However, if text consistently accompanies your video it’s silly not to assume that people will also subscribe through their RSS Readers, and will want to be able to view the video while they are reading your text. Within the same window. Gracias.
