There is a simple way to install NewsGator for MCE in Meedio. The only functionality that I can not get to work is to let NewsGator remember my login and password (now fixed, see note further down), and to play media files from feeds that include these types of files. I can see that NewsGator runs a command called “doPlayMedia” in explorer when I try to play video. I have no idea if it is possible to let the video open in mediaplayer or something like that.

The problem was the URL I have used:
So, as you can see, no matter how much the password is stored in a cookie, I still actually ask for the login page…
So, I changed the URL that I launch from Meedio to:
…and I don’t have to login every time!
This is how you configure NewsGator MCE for Meedio:
1. Create a Program Module
2. Program to launch: Internet Explorer
(Most likely: “C:Program FilesInternet Exploreriexplore.exe”)

Of course you also have to make an account with NewsGator at http://www.newsgator.com (The free account is enough).
…and you are done!
