[link] mFeeds - Podcast feeds from any page with media links
I got a 30GB MP3 player for Christmas so this Podcasting thing is getting more interesting to me. I'd previously wanted a Podcast feed from the Pitchfork Media MP3 page. I'd even started building an application to build the RSS for me based on Roy Osherove's Site-To-RSS code.
But today, Ben pointed me to mfeeds, which does the trick. It scrapes a given webpage and returns an RSS feed with enclosures which point to all the media the page links to. In other words, it makes a Podcast feed from any web page.
I pointed mfeeds at the Pitchfork MP3s page and got my Pitchfork MP3's feed: RSS
47 enclosures fetched... Yippee!!!
This is not the first time that Galloway Labs has been beaten to market on a utility, and I couldn't be happier.
