Mozilla Podcasts

Here is an interesting story that I found from Mozilla Links. Mozilla + Podcast = Good Stuff.

The Mozilla Digital Memory Bank has announced the launch of a new weekly podcast featuring snippets from the memory bank’s audio content.

Organized a few years ago by the Center for History and New Media, the MDMB “is a permanent, open, peer-produced digital archive of Mozilla history” that “collects and permanently preserves digital texts, images, audio, video, personal narratives, and oral histories related to Mozilla, its products, and its community of developers, testers, and users”.

The first one launched, an interview with Ben Goodger, I have not had the pleasure of listening to yet, but I have a feeling it should be interesting.

Stop Autoplay

I really hate when music or movies start up on a Web site when I did not ask them to. It is rude for my browser to think I want to listen to or watch this stuff without asking first. Well, I have a Firefox extension that will teach your browser some manners.

The Stop Autoplay extension for Firefox disable the autoplay of the embedded music and movie (mp3, wma, wmv, avi, mpg, and more). Are you locked out of hearing or seeing it then? No! The users can press the play button of the controller to play it. Now this is the way the Web was suppose to be.

FoxyTunes 2.0

FoxyTunes is one of those old reliable extensions that just keeps getting better with age. Version 2.0 is now out, and I have to say it is better than ever. If you have used FoxyTunes in the past and passed, I encourage you to give it a second look. Listen to your favorite tunes without leaving your browser!

Inline Google Player

Here is a neat Greasemonkey script that I ran across the other day.

The Digital Inspiration blog shows how to construct a URL that will play any MP3 file with Google’s player, which is nice, but it seems like a lot of work. So I’ve modified the auto inline MP3 player greasemonkey script to embed the Google Player in case you prefer the look and feel of Google’s player to the Musicplayer.
