No Podcasting In Windows Media Player 11

Paul Colligan posted today on his Profitable Podcasting Blog that the new Windows Media Player 11 does not support Podcasting.

While he is correct and here is is exact post:

Windows Media 11 is "out."
Looks like I was right - no Podcasting.
But, let's admit it, is anyone surprised?
Here's my favorite part - Microsoft's "Next Generation Music Player" doesn't do RSS.


Everyone needs to keep in mind that Windows Media Player 11 features were locked down before podcasting had any real traction in the marketplace. Everyone needs to remember that Microsoft product update cycles are very long and player 11 features have been set for 2 years now. Paul, you can rest assured that Microsoft will not sit on the sidelines of this growing market forever and I believe that we will see something from Microsoft soon that will start to address Podcasting as a type of attachment for a broader RSS support platform. It will be interesting to see how it will play out.
