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.

If your browser/aggregator can only open feeds with .rss or .xml extensions it's time to switch to different software. It wouldn't be able to handle the feed at my website for example: <URL:http://www.solitude.dk/rss&gt; - Andreas -- Personal: <http://www.solitude.dk&gt; File Thingie - PHP File Manager <http://www.solitude.dk/filethingie/&gt;
