Jealous of the things people can do to videos with their Macs? Head over to MediaBlab to see just how much you can add to a plain old Windows Media video file.
"Apple's AAC format allows podcasters to create "enhanced podcasts" complete with embedded photos
at publisher defined points throughout the podcast. These files are only compatible with iTunes
and iPods, leaving a large universe of listeners out of the picture. Microsoft's Photo Story could
easily create something similar, with a voice track narrating beneath a series of images, but the
WMV file created in Photo Story isn't compatible with most portable music players. One alternative
that bridges the gap and maximizes compatibility is to create a script enhanced WMA file, These
WMA files with embedded scripts play just like a normal WMA anywhere scripting isn't supported."
