timecoded podcast

It would be good if we can add an extra data section after the audio portion of MP3, which would contain extra time synced media.

Specifically stuff like extra snippets of text, images (Which would take the spot of song cover), or URL links, all synchronised to a podcast/song.

Pros: Convenient way for podcast listener to follow a link that a talker is mentioning in a podcast. A gallery of images could update for a song, but doesn't take the same amount of space as a real video.

Cons: Another avenue for podcast to sneak sponsor ads.

       Linking video with audio? Naaah. No one will want to watch that.

       more like displaying urls for a audio podcast during specific parts of the talk.   

       ambient metadata essentally

       Forgive my snark. What I'm trying to say is I don't see the difference between this and the many thrice baked protocols that exist to push video, text, metadata, and arbitrary data in timed intervals with an audio stream.

       Quicktime used to have an href track. I used to use it on some of my old panoramas back in the 20th century when I used to shoot a lot of panos on slide film and stitch them using QTVR authoring studio. If I edited the href track I could make a hotspot in a panorama link with another discrete separate panorama, giving choices of where to go. This is all now no longer possible in Quicktime.
