SplashCast, my favorite slideshow/web broadcast tool to date, just released a new version featuring brand new features on Monday. The foremost among them are MyPodcastNetwork, which is a podcast directory, and support for other RSS feeds that include ‘standard media enclosures” (ie., audio and images).
SplashCast already supports RSS feeds from Flickr and YouTube, but now they expanded their range. Unfortunately, because of the way Yahoo Pipes builds output feeds, I cannot take my custom Yahoo /Twitter /Flickr mashups and send them to SplashCast.
These new features have unfortunately raised some concern over how the enclosures from RSS feeds are or are not being handled on SplashCast’s servers, and whether originating sources are being credited or not. If you look at the bottom left of each frame for the “i” in a circle, click on it and you’ll see accreditation for media content, including links when available.
