where to find media feeds

Here are a couple resources to help discover media content distributed through RSS feeds. Anybody know of more resources like these? Any way that our videoblogs could ping a server to alert services like these (and those that are around the corner) know that we've just published a new video? http://www.blogdigger.com/media/index.jsp http://feedstertv.com/ Also, a nice article from O'Reilly on creating soundbytes from longer audio and podcasts... wonder if something like this would work for video? http://www.oreillynet.com/pub/a/network/2004/09/03/primetime.html ---------------------------- Joshua Kinberg jkinberg@... --------------------------- [View]

I alerted the Blogdigger guy to our feeds when they started up. unfortunately, he saus our videoblogging.info RSS doesnt work (something about the videos are hidden in metadata?).... but we just put each individual RSS feed of each videoblog....

RE: Videoblogging.info Hi Jay - I didn't see a feed in your XHTML header. If you do syndicate the site, you should provide a link to the RSS/XML file in the header, so it can be read by browsers and other internet devices: <link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="RSS 2.0" href="http://www.videoblogging.info/index.xml&quot; /> The above is an example for RSS 2.0, obviously. It supports enclosures. You should also place a manual link to the feed somewhere on the page itself, so users can copy/paste the link into a news aggregator. I see you do have an "RSS" button, but it doesn't link to the feed. It's great that videobloggers can ping this site. I think the next step would be to provide an RSS feed of the "recent videos" list -- so users can subscribe to a list of recently updated videoblogs, and other directories can incorporate your data. -Rick > > I alerted the Blogdigger guy to our feeds when they started up. > unfortunately, he saus our videoblogging.info RSS doesnt work > (something about the videos are hidden in metadata?).... > but we just put each individual RSS feed of each videoblog....

We all need to thank Andreas of http://solitude.dk for throwing up our videoblogging site. i dont if theres a reason for it being the way it is. probably just becasue he built it very fast one weekend. maybe he'll read this and see the recommendation.

The <link rel="alternate" describes an alternate version of the page you're on. The Recent Video feed is not an alternate version of the front page of videoblogging.info and thus it shouldn't have such a link-element. > You should also place a manual link to the feed somewhere on the page > itself, so users can copy/paste the link into a news aggregator. I see > you > do have an "RSS" button, but it doesn't link to the feed. The button points to <URL:http://videoblogging.info/ping/?mode=__rss&gt; and that's the URL of the feed. Is the feed not working for you or? - Andreas (the guy who slammed together videoblogging.info) -- Personal: <http://www.solitude.dk&gt; File Thingie - PHP File Manager <http://www.solitude.dk/filethingie/&gt; [View]

I was thinking more along the lines of including the link in the header of the 'Recent Videos' page (http://videoblogging.info/videos). Not a big deal, though. > The button points to <URL:http://videoblogging.info/ping/?mode=__rss&gt; and > that's the URL of the feed. Is the feed not working for you or? After Jay replied to my message, I re-checked the link. You're right, the RSS feed is there. I was misled, because my browsers (Windows: Firefox, IE6) won't actually open the feed. However, I discovered that I can download the feed and open it in a text editor. The source of the problem, I think, is how you linked to the RSS file. Most of the time, the browser can see the .xml or .rss extension, so it knows that it *can* open the feed. Again, this is not a big deal, because the link is readable by news aggregators. It's just different than what I normally see. Thanks again, -Rick [View]

I've just added it to that page. The feed shows up in Opera - I don't have a new version of Firefox to check with. >> The button points to <URL:http://videoblogging.info/ping/?mode=__rss&gt; >> and >> that's the URL of the feed.

I was misled, because my browsers (Windows: Firefox, > IE6) won't actually open the feed. It's being sent with the correct Content-Type (application/rss+xml - I double checked after your email). How your browsers handle that content-type is something you set up. I would imagine that I6 would display a download dialog and newer versions of Firefox would add the feed to a live bookmarks thing. I honestly don't know how they handle things by default though. I've done what I can. :o) > I think, is how you linked to the RSS file.
