Killer CC App: The Publisher, beta version

Leveraging the Internet Archive's generous offer to host Creative Commons licensed (audio and video) files for free, we recently completed the 0.96 beta version of The Publisher, a desktop, drag-and-drop application that licenses audio and video files, and sends them to the Internet Archive for free hosting.

When you're done uploading, the application gives you a URL where others can download the file. It also is able to tag MP3 files with Creative Commons metadata and publish verification metadata to the Web. A HUGE congratulations to Nathan Yergler, who's done an amazing job with this. Also, a great thanks to Jon Aizen and the folk at the Internet Archive. You can download the Publisher from here -- give it a test run and let us know what you think.


Also note that aside from being downloadable from Internet Archive, these tagged MP3s can flow on to P2P networks, and be identified as Creative Commons licensed (see our Lookup app we recently also updated to 0.96). Morpheus is currently the only file sharing application to identify Creative Commons licensed files.

I'm definitely going to start using this. Amazing. Thanks again everyone!

Looks like a great utility, but a 59.3Mb app to display a single pane for uploading files is a bit excessive. On closer inspection the app comes with all libwx, libxml, and libxxlt libraries.

Unfortunately it seems to be available only on MacOSX :(

And windows (the .msi file). A .tar.gz for linux should be available upon 1.0 release.
