unfortunately coincided with the Mighty Seek site going down and for the life of me I
couldn't get it running properly so gave up and followed Charles Hodgson's
recommendation for the per episode player from http://www.1pixelout.net/code/audio-
player-wordpress-plugin/ which is fine for the audio post parts of my show on the blog.

The way my show Directors Notes works is I interview a film director about a specific piece
of work, which then goes out as an mp3 file in my feed. To give the interviews context and
so listeners can see the films discussed, I then release the director's film or a clip if it's a
longer piece into my feed also as a mov, mp4.
My reason for wanting an RSS compatible player and not going down the embedded QT/
WMP route is so that it can update dynamically and be posted on my MySpace or on
listeners' sites/blogs if they feel like helping us out by promoting the show.The RSS flash
players I've tried so far can playback the mp3 interview fine but make a screeching noise
like a camel spider when they try to play the video files. I came across the SpringWidgets
RSS Reader Widget yesterday (http://www.springwidgets.com/widgets/view/23) which just
lists the video files with a link and can play the audio files, so that's a step forward, but
ideally I'll like a player that can playback both file types.
Cheers for the suggestions
