Creating an RSS feed of your own media??

Hi

Might be a dull question - if there any way of creating an rss feed of your own media from symlinks on a webserver
Will also most likely need to be password protected RSS too

Basically I have files in various folders and just think that if you could create an RSS of the files in those folders that might be usefull for streaming to a Sony TV using the rss feed in serviio

Again sorry if a stupid question - just wondered if it can be done and how??

There are no stupid questions!
And your question is very interesting, I do not see what could prevent serviio from using a local rss.
Do you try this?

Don't think it'll work from a local rss ATM. Playlists will come at some stage though. Also you can host your RSS on a website, like google sites.

Re: Creating an RSS feed of your own media??

Streaming local files works fine as follows, but I'm not sure why I would want that since I get the same capability by just opening the PC directory in Serviio.

The rss and the files simply need to be stored within an EasyPHP www/serviio directory on your PC and the rss feed referenced as http://192.168.1.10/serviio/LocalFeeds_rssName.rss
and the rss item files referred to as
<media:content url="http://192.168.1.10/serviio/filename.ext" />

Only condition is that the filenames currently must not contain blanks. Instead any blanks in the filename must be replaced by %20
You could use a groovy to do that.

Heres where stupid comes in again :)

Parents have just bought a new Sony TV - I have installed serviio on their laptop and all is good (i have used in the past but switched to a dedicated XBMC box now)

They are pretty scared of anything PC - they can just about get on the internet if everything is easily laid out - anything else they struggle

So I was thinking would it perhaps be possible to stream the odd Movie ( home movies maybe of their grand daughter and stuff) to them from a webserver

I have been playing about tonight without really knowing what Im doing but have stumbled accross Folder-RSS

got that to create a xml and its identifying the avi file (low quality)

Not sure what is the next step - but thats enough for now ....will have another go later

Re: Creating an RSS feed of your own media??

If I remember correctly, instead of web server, it would be possible to use the linking:

file :/ / / C :/ name.rss

or

C :/ name.rss

I have installed due to another web server serviio, I find it useless ..

Well, that's okay then ...

Even so I wonder if he Serviio your web server, why not use it?
While I as a programmer web sites on your PC installed Apache + PHP I have, but even though I find it very difficult to install the server on your home computer (impractical).

Could Serviio creator, create a folder "www" in the root to target there web site that creates serviio to that location.

I think both the rss and the files can be stored on google sites and a groovy like live feeds should be able to access and play both. No need for a local server.
