Cannot use Media RSS Storyboard
 
I tried several times but I can't get the RSS Storyboard working!
It recognizes the name of the channel, but it always says "There are no items in the storyboard"

I was wandering if any of you was successful in using this function.

Could you provide me an example of a feed that you known is working so that I'll understand what should a good rss file look like.

Thank you :) and sorry for the bad English

misterstudent,

Please provide the RSS address you're using with the RSS storyboard feature. I've tested with a CNET video podcast URL (http://hdvideopodcasts.cnettv.com) and the feature functions properly.

Thank you, I think the key was the <enclosure> tag that I omitted.


I'm trying this model and it seems to be working:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<rss version = "2.0" xmlns:media = "http://search.yahoo.com/mrss">
<channel>
<title>Storyboard title</title>
<link>stuff</link>
<description>other stuff</description>

<item>
<guid isPermaLink="false">501391932</guid>
<title>Item 1</title>
<description>Media RSS Item 1</description>
<link>http://video_file_url.webm</link>
<media:content url = "http://video_file_url.webm" type="video/webm"></media:content>
<enclosure url="http://video_file_url.webm" length="0" type="video/webm" />
</item>

<item>
<guid isPermaLink="false">501391933</guid>
<title>Item 2</title>
<description>Media RSS Item 2</description>
<link>http://video_file_url.webm</link>
<media:content url = "http://video_file_url.webm" type="video/webm"></media:content>
<enclosure url="http://video_file_url.webm" length="0" type="video/webm" />
</item>

</channel>
</rss>

Thank you again for your help, I hope it will be useful for somebody else :) have a nice day
PS: the webm format is surprisingly working
