Soapbox Video On Your Zune

Posted by David Tucker in "Zune News" @ 08:23 AM

“The MSN Video folks have updated Soapbox on MSN Video to allow users the ability to subscribe and add someone's video "stream" to Zune. You'll notice a new Zune icon next to the RSS icon on people's profiles on Soapbox for MSN Video. When you click the Zune icon, it adds the video feed to the Zune software. For example - when you go to my profile on Soapbox for MSN Video (where I host my videos I post here) and click the Zune icon - my video feed will appear in the Zune software.”

I’ve never really used MSN Video myself but I may have to start. This is a really nice tip from the Windows Vista Blog folks. I personally really enjoy the video podcast function. I have several that I watch in the morning when I get to work as I get the day started.

The only downside is that it only applies to Soapbox video, not all of MSN Video. So it has to be user content and not all content. I think that would have made this much cooler but it’s still a pretty cool feature.

IE Plugin to Convert YouTube, Google Video to Zune

"ZuneIEPlugIn allows users to install an Internet Explorer plugin that aids in saving YouTube, GoogleVideo and SoapBox videos to [their] video folders. User can view them on WMV compatible portable devices."



ZuneIEPlugIn boasts the ability to download and convert the .flv file to .wmv - ready for the Zune. The software installs a toolbar button in Internet Explorer that allows access to one-click conversion. I have to say I'm skeptical that it would be that easy. Has anyone tried it? I'll try downloading it later, but in the meantime feel free to share any results you may have.
