Plugin for Video Comments
- for those of you using Wordpress, Davod Meade craeted a whole new
plugin for video comments:
It seems works much better than what we were using Semanal:
The plugin adds some extra fields to the comment area.
The video comment then shows up as a clickable thumbnail and lays
inline if you also have vPIP installed.
This is a good example of old fashioned team work.

Regarding semantic markup... Indeed.
That's why i made mention of XFN earlier to imply that taking the same
concepts of people relations through semantics (my profiles and
friends profiles and discovering connections), the same should be
applied to the conversations being had among these people.
If you are posting a response to another post (barring
trackback/pingback/linkback), making use of semantic markup can build
the graph that can be mapped out and presented logically. a simple
rel or rev with url to the permalink and/or media file along with
other sensible extensions is how this thing should sprout
I've thought a little on what structure can be applied. When thinking
about media pooling, such as the Semanal video pool.... its not truly
about commenting, replying and responding. its about contributing and
But a contributed video to Semanal can also be a response to another
video. So it might make sense to focus on multiple methods and means
to interconnecting media and people in ways that can be trailed via
web services and plugins to common platforms such as WP, Drupal etc.
As far as output... how it all would look and feel. that's maybe a
bit moot in the beginning stages because once the groundwork is in
place, then developers and designers can have infinite ways to present
the relationships and content. I think MIke pointed that out earleir
in this thread or somewhere. It's all challenging and definately the
look and feel discussion is important and should be happening
concurrently... with people doing mockups and prototypes. But some
level of samepageism needs to be set.
