I was thinking more than just VOD. I was thinking more of a way to
"mark" certain shows (episodes) then either store the custom playlist
(ie. my favorites) or yah right a DVR solution. I've got EyeTv along
with Titan TV and Toast (Mac) where I can pick a list of "regular"
broadcast TV shows and have them written to my Mac by a schedule I
create. Toast in this case works like a DVR.
So I'm brainstorming here on combining BOTH VOD and/or DVR capabilities
to a "Content Machine" like Red5. A DVR solution might be not a good
idea, but creating a "my favorite" list (custom personalized playlist)
so that when you revisit a site... your content of VOD is pre-selected?
