  1. Blogs that have plenty of (good) images can benefit from such function. For example MediaRSS feed can be used in wallpaper changer app.

    It can also be used in syndication for cross-promoting content. I am including my latest stumble in my footer with graphic thumbnail and it would be so much easier if feed was MediaRSS.

    Other than such specific uses my guess is rest of bloggers couldn’t care less. :)

    PS oh and I wish before this fancy stuff someone fixed rss.php in WordPress to support enclosures


  2. Interesting plugin, I’ll have to give it a shot as I’ve never used it before.


  3. Very few of my clients use or ask for this capability. Most of the people I know prefer to use the RSS feeds as a quick preview option.

    As one client put it…

    “If readers want to see video, audio, and pictures, they should come to my site. There is no need to replicate everything in an RSS feed. When readers view an RSS feed, they are missing out on the many socialization and member perks I provide on the site.”

    Another client had this to say…

    “It’s just one more thing I will never use and will clutter up my database.”

    Those comments pretty much sum up the way most of my clients feel. Like I’ve said in the past, just because you CAN doesn’t mean you SHOULD.


  4. I think, this very good and great plugin. I good examble for extended function and i think this is googd so. WordPress has now so much functions and i like a small and fast core with the importance functions.
    Maybe use this a small part of users, not so many, or? I think, the media-tag is very good examble for a extended function, a part of a plugin.
    The same diskuss is the Twitter support in core.


  5. In my opinion, the Yahoo MediaRSS namespace is a useful and lightweight extension to rss2 – It just adds some machine readable info about your media to the feed and more and more apps for it are coming up: Just have a look at cooliris and surf to my blog (or google images search results if you don’t like my photos ;-) – THAT’s nice.

    I already implemented media rss in my PhotoBlog plugin YAPB – and since i plan to build more upon core WordPress media functionality in future, i’d love to see that feature in the core.
