I was listening to a 'podcast' the other day, and the authors have taken to inserting 30 second adverts in it, which are incredibly annoying (I don't mind a well placed advert, but these took the biscuit). I propose a media player plugin which looks at any podcasts you have, compares them to a central (user submitted) database of edits, and trims out the ads either on the fly or by actually editing the mp3 file.

       Or add a 30-second skip button, like Tivo.   

       I would have thought an alert that a podcast has ads would be enough for everyone to shun it.

       I don't know what pods are, other than the things in the horror movies. Call me daft...( I mean I know, but I don't know much.) But anything that gets rid of ads has gotta be good.

       See under iPod. Podcasting is creating audio or video tracks designed to be played on an iPod.
