cosmopod is a safari plugin that adds a lil icon on top of the browser window that highlights when detects a flash video on the page. You can then click to convert to itunes.
I emailed the cocoamug guys some ideas to make it even leaner.
Hi, first of all I’m a happy cosmopod customer… Thanks for the good work.
Below, some suggestions… The idea is to use cosmopod as a click-now/watch-later kind of thing, so I can watch what my friends are talking but keep my focus at work.
- automate the settings: convert all files as tv show, "cosmopod". That way I can subscribe to the tv show on my iphone, and have always the latest ones after I sync. Movie files - the current default - have to be transferred manually, no good.
- recognize embedded youtube videos, also. nowadays I need to click the embedded file, then pause the original youtube video, click the cosmopod button, then close the window.
- can you recognize youtube videos on google reader too? plz?
- add the original youtube URL to the comments, in case I want to retrace my steps.
I take cosmopod as a video version of instapaper… as instapaper collects texts to read later, my goal is to use cosmopod to watch all collected videos in a row, commuting back from work. Any automated step to help me create this workflow, the better.
