SimplePie can be easily installed to work with mediawiki, see Mediawiki SimplePie usage and Mediawiki SimplePie example, as well as About this wiki.

Why this is interesting for media delivery? SimplePie parses media:rss in the same way as it can parse normal rss. Thus we can use the SimplePie mediawiki plugin to deliver multi-format video and audio into a mediawiki. I.e. we can transcode and manage media outside the mediawiki, and simply include the results in the mediawiki.
