If you don't know about the Miro player, you should: http://www.getmiro.com/ It has a good chance of becoming the most-popular player for video and eventually even audio. The organization behind Miro is non-profit and it's an open project.

The player supports "sites" and the only one that's standard is their own "Podcast Directory". We have an opportunity to add SpokenWord.org as an additional "site" and if we do a good job of it and provide valuable integration with the player, there's a chance we can convince the folks behind Miro to include SpokenWord.org as a second "site" with the standard release. I just spoke with Nicholas Reville, Executive DIrector of Miro's parent organization, and he's open to the idea. We have to prove ourselves first, of course.

So I put this out there to anyone who is interested. Want to take a shot at this or work with others who do? You can downloads the source for Miro for Windows, Linux or Mac. I don't have a clue what's involved. It might be nothing more than a configuration option, but obviously getting deeper integration adds even more value.

Let us know if you want to help on this. Thanks.
