movie feed

From Lifehacker and Going along with all the video iPod hullaballoo, an easy way to grab any .mov files that come through and suck them down as a podcast. I’ve still got my lovely 20G gen3 iPod, so I don’t have the video iPod (nor am I really sure I need one….), but you can watch these movies right in your podcatcher (assuming it does video). I’m currently using iTunes right now, but others may be capable as well.

Anyways, Step 1: go to and copy the link for the orange RSS button at the bottom. Step 2: subscribe to that link as a podcast. Step 3: profit!…. or watching the best videos the internets have to offer.

This trick also works with any file type you so desire….mp3, mpg, avi or whatever you like. Just change the filetype at the end. (I’ve used it for mp3 before, and a whole heck of a lot of mp3s get linked, so I ended up with _way_ more than I could keep up with, so I had to unsubscribe after a while (and by unsubscribe I mean my computer crashed, and I didn’t re-up).

So, there you, quick way to grab nifty movies, and here are a few good ones I’ve seen so far:

Dueling heavy metal viking longships, with a Transformers/mech finale….. really, how can you go wrong with that:

These made the rounds a few weeks ago, but they really are quite good, check them out if you haven’t already. Recut movie trailers for genre-switch goodness:
The Shining as Romantic Comedy
Titanic as a Horror movie
And West Side Story as Zombie horror goodness
Subway parasite media movie from Berlin. Very cool idea, and a nice hack for the box too


Funny remix of ’70s kid show about pi… beginning is kinda corny, but once you get the chanting LARPers and the PI-bot, it gets pretty funny

So fire that up as a podcast and see what goodness you discover
