I like how Boxee supports RSS news feeds and it got me to thinking how one could create an RSS based media server.

Instead of monitoring Internet based RSS news feeds I'm interested in looking into the idea of an RSS based media server on the LAN. That is, a light-weight HTTPD service that will also scan local directories for media and publish via RSS news feed using the meta data from the file. The service could publish multiple RSS feeds based on varying criteria.

I'm still just seeing how Boxee handles RSS feeds and if this provides any additional media management capabilities.

Any thoughts?
