Google Reader just got even cooler.  Now supports video and audio tags.

I’m an addict.  I admit it.  I have Google Reader as my homepage, I have a shortcut to it on my Droid’s main screen and heck, I even have an RSS reader that checks my Google Reader RSS.  Yes, I believe in redundancy.

Google OS blog reports that Reader now supports audio and video tags under HTML5.  What’s that?  More a/v media in my Reader stream?  Where do I sign up?!

Luckily, you don’t have to sign up anywhere.  As long as you have a browser compatible with the HTML5 tags (read that as pretty much anything other than IE) you’ll be able to see the new content as it is added.  Though there is a forewarning even for Firefox and Opera users – presently neither of these browsers support the H264 video standard, so you won’t be able to view video encoded in this manner.
