Mefeedia on the PSP

Eric Rice Video Blog Post:

The experiment was posting Playstation Portable-compatible/formatted videos to a blog using Audioblog (which will post the flash video AND the enclosure (feedburner
needed)).

The weblog is formatted in a way that it will look good on the PSP's 408x272
screen.

I then made a splash page on my web server that had my ugly mug and a link to a page that had nothing more than Peter's neat video archive 'vlogwall' javascript available at
http://mefeedia.com/help/javascript/feedthumbs.php (he calls it an instant
archive).

The result is a site that looks like this on a PSP Splash page: http://www.flickr.com/photos/ericrice/38707905/

The PSP browser makes the page format pretty well, although you can play with
the stylesheets to adjust spacing.

And the bonus of this for all you iTunes fans: Quicktime is Quicktime. If you post PSP- ready videos to your videoblog, they're instantly video podcasts in iTunes as well as accessible directly via PSP over the web. The same applies to FireAnt and all the other aggregators out there that play video.

One final thing... this PSP is a bigger deal than you might think. It's not
socially awkward
to have a PSP in public, and the fact that you can connect to the web over wifi
to get audio,
pictures, video (and of course the web) is a huge step. *Huge*...

Do you want to penetrate that demographic to evangelize making media? I sure as
hell do.
