Unhappy RSS Storyboard

I cannot seem to get anything into my RSS Storyboard, it has nothing to play.

Can you give an example a URL you are trying to import?

Here are a few examples:

Note that video-podcast syndication also works here, and updates itself with new episodes automatically.


Hope this helps you.
Cheers!

Default Video feeds only then

Aha! Video feeds. That explains it. I was having a similar problem. So I take it still images cannot be imported via RSS?

I don't think so. Might work for importing over the shoulder graphics, though. Try it!

Default More Rss Bugs

Will not import rss video from youtube. The new RSS storyboard is created but it does not grab the videos at all.

feed://www.youtube.com/rss/user/[user name]/videos.rss

Is what Youtube instructs to feed into readers

http://www.youtube.com/rssls

It doesn't work

Right, in that case just type the YouTube channel name in the YouTube search function in the studio.

That is not an equivalent solution to the RSS feed, which auto imports and does so each time a new video is uploaded. If I were just to search, I would need to do the search fresh daily and look for new videos.

I see your point, yes. I have also never been able to get a YouTube RSS feed to work at all in the studio, same as Vimeo, 12seconds.tv and flixwagon. Qik, and a few others update just fine.

What could be the reason? Some update, and some don't.
