Thank you! RSS Media Player

In 2005, developed the first RSS based media player optimized for download and viewing of vlogs, video blogs and video podcasts. FireAnt enjoyed a loyal following with the rise of podcasting and video podcasting, and saw more than 500,000 downloads of the software. The Fire Ants media player was instrumental in the growth of “citizen journalism” and online media. also played a role in the early growth of social media as it facilitated the interaction of people and opinion through comments left on video blogs and websites.

The original Fire Ants media player was optimized for video search using Yahoo's emerging Media RSS rules. The video search engine was optimized for RSS video feeds. The first of it's kind, Fire ant downloaded and played videos regardless of their format.

Unfortunately, FireAnt is no longer available for download. If you are looking for an RSS media player we recommend you try Miro, the free and open source media player.
