WMP Podcast Plug–In

IE7's feed subscription engine will download enclosures if you tell it too (it's a per–feed setting). However the IE feed browser does not have a direct way to see which items have enclosures. So I decided to create a plug–in for Windows Media Player. The plug–in reads the user's "common feed list" looking for downloaded audio enclosures. These are then listed in a simple grid directly within WMP. I can then simply click a file to start playing.

I wrote the plug–in in just a few hours using VS.NET 2005 with C#2.0! There are still enhancements required, but it does work great already.

Having the MS feed engine syncing all my feeds (podcasts, news, blogs, everything!) and using different applications to view aspects of them is better than trying to have one application do everything.

I may add support for searching and browsing podcast specific content (podcast alley, etc). No need to install iTunes at all! :D
