Go check out LifeHacker for a cool idea on discovering new audio/video content.

The gist of it goes like this:
In iTunes, subscribe to a custom feed.
Make that custom feed a RSS URI from Del.icio.us that points only to the media you want to grab. (mp3, mpg, etc, etc) more here
Add +[tag] to narrow the results.

There may be some great automation possibilities here. There are some comments on the thread referring to AppleScript, but I’m thinking Automator may fit the bill too, depending on what you wanna grab.

  1. [...] atoryCulture.org and their DTV platform. Nick had also written a piece on finding audio and video content by subscribing to a custom RSS feed in iTunes [...]

  2. How would you subscribe to, for example, all media files on a certain subject?

  3. RickL – here’s a good list of what you can do:

    some popular examples here:

    basically, you can test certain del.icio.us tags/links to see what people are actually tagging things as. For example, I try to pull all mov files of The Daily Show, with:
    del.icio.us/tag/system:filetype:mov dailyshow

    play around, you’ll find what works and what doesn’t
