MY podcast.com on a PSP


Here is something which we’ll be opening up soon, along with registrations to podcast.com!

When you get the chance to sign up at podcast.com, you’re effectively creating a podcast directory of your favourite podcast subscriptions. All those will be available to you on the main site using the existing interface – through http://my.podcast.com/kosso/ (for example)

BUT! You’ll also get to surf to my.podcast.com/kosso/psp on your Sony PSP to access yours and your friend’s subscriptions there. Mobile too – and more to come.

Notice the small image next to the logo – that’s my podcast.com profile image πŸ˜‰

Cool!! Now that’s what I can portable media.

Podcast.com for Sony PSP


This will be getting a bit of an update soon, but here’s how psp.podcast.com looks on its built-in web broswer. Very fast and small pages to load, opening up a plethora of audio and video podcasts for you to subscribe to.

When you navigate to a podcast page, a simple click on the RSS icon will launch the PSP’s built-in RSS reader (‘Channels’) and ask if you want to subscribe for automatic updates.

Also, you can click the download links to supported audio and video formats and the PSP will ask if you want to download and place it into your personal mobile media library! Simple!

You can also view you podcasts is a smaller layout for mobile smartphone browsers at mobile.podcast.com

Not only those, but every user who comes to podcast.com to mange and share their podcast subscriptions get the bonus of a mobile and console interface for all their own stuff! Bargain!

The outside office with N800


The N800 is perfect for those of us who just ‘have’ to stay connected to everything going on. With wifi and the Nokia N800’s easy-to-set-up Gmail client, it chimes when I get mail which I can read on the built – in web browser. All while listening to a live shoutcast stream coming from the lounge in the front of the flat.

I must say : The mobile browser here in the N800 is by far the best browser I have ever used on the portable device of this size.

IRC on a Nokia N800


Over the weekend I looked for a quick solution to an internet relay chat interface using html rather than Java.

Once I got this running, I was able to use it on the N800, which was pretty cool.

The UI is still incomplete, but hey, it worked!! πŸ™‚

Chief Twit Brings UStream Down

After I saw about 630 viewers on Leo Laporte’s U-Stream of his Tech Guy show it went down. I think the UStream server did pretty well. Apparently the local one will take 1000 concurrent viewers – so now now the ‘server is full’. I hear that there is a backup for this, using a dedicated CDN provider. If you didn’t realise it, much of Chris Pirillo’s U-Stream output from Podcast Hotel has been coming form the dedicated service.

Here’s how it went down.
(BTW: Someone asked Leo to put the keyboard on his head – so he did πŸ˜‰ )

I’m sure that Brad from U-Stream has more to worry about at this time – I hear a baby is imminent! Good luck with EVERYTHING!!! πŸ™‚

UStream on a Wii!!!


Well, once I realised that I could do the Flash required to get UStream on a Nokia N800 in the previous entry, I swiftly hacked together an interface for the Wii.

I have some very interesting ideas and plans for content on mobiles and consoles. But you’re going to have to wait until I get further down the road to a ful lbeta on podcast.com for that! πŸ˜‰

Live UStream video on the Nokia N800!


Wow. I really didn’t expect this to work, but it does!!

I was able to quickly create a Flash 7 file which connects to the live video being streaming from Chris Pirillo at the Podcast Hotel in San Francisco!

Gobsmacked! πŸ˜‰

This is just the beginning of something very, VERY cool!

Who is this ‘kosso’ anyway?

I am a 'Createc'. A creative technologist, entrepreneur/ hacker/ geek. Worked on building things on the web for over 12 years.

Used to work at BBC News interactive and created the publishing and delivery systems for video news to get distributed on huge screens in major railway stations around the country.

I left the BBC to become CTO / sole-lead architect/developer at podcast.com for three years.

I have now left them to build a start up a new system called 'Phreadz', which is a 'Social Multimedia Conversation Network', integrating everything that is 'V.I.T.A.L' to us on the web. Video, Images, Text, Audio and Links.

I built the whole thing my myself. I programmed every line of code and positioned every pixel. I'm looking forward to attracting an hiring new members of the team to help me out! :)

There are currently over 1000 happy and helpful beta testers on the system so far and one client of a white-labelled solution.
