As we [re-discover][rss] the value of Atom/RSS feeds, most useful feed clients I
know of don't support media, specifically audio and video.

[gPodder][gpodder] does.

It is mostly know as a desktop podcatcher. But the thing about podcasts is that
the feed is provided through an RSS/Atom feed. So you can just use gPodder as
your media feed client, where you have control of what you look at.

I audio and video providers I know of offer an RSS/Atom view of their content,
so you can, say, treat any YouTube channel like a feed on its own.

gPodder will then managed your feeds, watched/unwatched, queue downloads, etc.

Being obvious now, it was a big finding for me. If it got you interested, I
recommend you giving gPodder a try.
