Trying to figure this RSS feed out

I've not had any luck getting the RSS feed for online resources working.

I've added the following RSS feed to the online resources, but nada.

http://www.1tv.ru/rss_item/71

Is there any guide I can use to help me troubleshoot this?

Re: Trying to figure this RSS feed out

From the Wiki:

  Code:
Each item in the rss must contain a <title>, a unique http://<link>, a <media:stream and optionally a <media:thumbnail. The <media:stream must contain the live stream url and if it is an audio stream, the stream type for that item. that the groovy will match in order to extract the <media:stream for that item. The groovy will use the unique <link> value to match the item to extract the <media:stream info for that item and pass it to Serviio with the required live attribute. Serviio will then list the valid items in the menu and display the provided <media:thumbnail icon and the item <title>. If no thumbnail is available, that entry in the item must be omitted. (To maintain unique http:// link names it is best to use simple http://link1, http://link2 etc. numbered sequentially)


The RSS feed you've provided doesn't contain a link node as child of each item node. Also, it doesn't contain a media:stream, which means you can't use this RSS feed for Serviio. You'll have to write a WebResource plugin for that.

Besides that, the links in the RSS feed points to webpages, and not to video files. The webpages contain flash movies. So you'll be needing a WebResource plugin which downloads the webpage, extracts the stream url's (if possible), and give that to Serviio.
