      >- Does anyone think it's a bad idea to use RSS in this way, and that we should choose another mechanism? I admit that it's a bit of a bastardisation of the idea behind RSS, in that it's not really announcing new content, it's just a way of linking to content that always exists. Having said that, we would add new streams to this file as new stations come on the air, new formats are added, etc. (if you think we should use another mechanism, please suggest one ;-)

      I think a daily or even more frequent schedule of programs would be very useful.


      >- Do any RSS readers / podcast "catchers" support audio and video streams, either using the "media:player" element or "media:content" with the "url" attribute pointing to the stream?

      You could use metafiles as an enclosure.


      >- Client authors, do you have any suggestions for how we should do this to work with your players in the most effective way?

      ditto


      >- And now a more specififc Media RSS related question: we are offering multicast video streams right now, as a trial. We would like to inform people of this fact in the RSS feed, as not all ISPs support multicast video¬Ö but where should we say it, and how? In a way it could be called a "restriction" but we would prefer to say that multicast is a feature rather than a limitation!

      Isn't that what the description field is for?
