UniveRSS is a “3D RSS feed reader for Windows Vista.”
I’m curious about HDNet. I don’t get it on my Comcast cable system. Is there a website where you can download the shows? A feed I can subscribe to? Any way to sample their offerings, even if it isn’t in HD, even if Comcast doesn’t get on board?
Microsoft: “If you are an enclosure publisher that wants to serve enclosures larger then 15MB to IE7 users, then you should use HTTP servers that support HTTP RANGE requests. Most popular web servers support HTTP RANGE requests.”
I don’t know whether my server supports this feature or not, and I suspect most enclosure publishers (ie people who do podcasting) don’t know either.
Yesterday I did a podcast that was more than 15MB. It’s not at all uncommon for a podcast to be bigger.
It surely seems Microsoft could handle the buffering without requiring a special feature from the server.
How much thought did they put into this?
Is it in the deployed verison of their RSS Engine?
If I were a developer I’d be very careful about using their engine, situations like this are why you should be concerned. It could be a harmless limit (we’ll find out), on the other hand, it might not be harmless.
