Has anybody tried to download news videos from sites like Foxnews? I would love to be able to use a media aggregator to get all the videos.

I've tried gpodder and Miro, but neither of them could even recognize the videos. I used the RSS feed URL for the videos. See for example:

http://feeds.foxnews.com/foxnews/video/news/World?format=xml

Thank you!

Opening up the feed in my browser (Firefox) shows a simple picture for each video and a link to a page with a flash player for the video there. To my knowledge the videos are not embedded in the stream, and therefore your aggregator should not be able to play them.
