YouTube has MPEG4 Support

It looks like Youtube now has MPEG4 support.

I wrote youtube2ipod transcoder that takes a .flv and builds a mp4 which works with iphones and ipods.

The problem is that it takes about an hour to convert a video.

This is a bit more handy.

Let’s see if it works with Feedburner’s automatic podcast support.

Update:

I think it has to work with this URL … maybe Feedburnder doesn’t support HTTP 303.

Update 2:

Somehow WordPress is only returning the summary RSS feed even though the setting is to use full-text. Hm.

Scratch that… turns out the new Firefox beta shows a summary view of RSS even when viewing full-text feeds. Strange.
