Okay, I’m done researching, and now I need to turn to begging.
For the last week I’ve been looking for something that, I felt, should be fairly simple to find: A Podcast Player for Facebook pages. Here’s how I saw it:
You port in a feed of your podcast, it pops up on your Fan Page’s feed, complete with player, just as if you were porting over your audio RSS feed into Friendfeed. (It looks like this):
How simple would that be?
Apparently, not very. I’ve looked at available podcasting apps on Facebook, and none of them will allow you to post to your fan page – only your profile.
Then I tried Yahoo! Pipes to build my own solution. Yahoo! Pipes is a brilliant tool that allows you to take a feed and manipulate, mashup and mix it alone or with several other feeds, then gives you a whole new feed when you’re done. Unfortunately, that was a no-go as well.
So I’m giving up, and throwing down the gauntlet: Does anyone know how to make such a thing work? If you do, let me know and I’ll post all about it. I would do it myself, but I find the world of RSS and feeds has bested me.
