Mirpod is an online podcast player that can stream RSS feeds or XSPF playlist feeds. The Flash application looks like a virtual iPod and can easily be embedded in a website or blog. Users can listen to podcasts by entering a podcast feed URL or choosing a show from the Podcast Directory. The Mirpod interface displays a playlist of show episodes that can be streamed using the playback controls. It can also display photos and there’s a tag search at the site for finding pictures on the web (video in the pipeline).
You can see it in action with my open podcast station DISSCO. DJs are welcome to add their own dance music podcasts to the playlist via the DISSCO Gigadial Station.
