RSS Remote Enclosure allows a user to attach a remote resource link (i.e. a media file on a different server) to any node (subject to user permissions). The node author enters the URL and the Link Text in the designated text fields, and the link appears in an <enclosure> tag on RSS feed (complete with correct size and MIME type). The link also appears in the link area below the body of the node.

The administrator, can restrict the use of RSS Remote Enclosure to certain roles and nodetypes. The administrator can also specify whether the link is displayed in the text of the RSS feed item.

This module is very handy if your users can't/don't want to create <a> tags themselves.
In most cases the module can replace third-party tools like Feedburner without the overhead.

This module is especially useful if you're running something like a podcast!

Use the Filter allowed protocols module to enable e.g. RMTP or RTSP urls.

Version 6.x-1.1 is completely self contained and stable.
Version 6.x-2.0 depends on CCK and features an improved user interface.

See the Media module for a Drupal 7 project. Also note the Embedded Media Field module.
