Nesting rss feed

I have some questions about plugins:

It seems to me that the plugin to use depends of the RSS url, instead of the item url. It's that true or i'm wrong?. If this is true, it means than you can't mix video servers in the same RSS. I'm right?

Also I wanted to know if there are any way of nesting RSS feeders. I mean, if something like this is possible:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<rss version="2.0">
      <title>RSS one</title>
      <description>Main RSS</description>

    <title>News of today</title>
    <description>All you need to know about RSS</description>
    <title>Nested rss</title>
    <link type="application/rss+xml">http://rsshost/?nestedrss=rss2</link>
    <description>Nested rss</description>


If this is possible, what is the behaviour of serviio?
The nested RSS feeders appears to the DLNA client like folders?
It trys to load all the nested RSS feeder at once,? If this is true, I think it couldn't work when the RSSs estructure is complex and has a lot of videos. So i think that the correct behaviour is load the nested RSS when a client demands it.

Thanks for the answer.

Re: Nesting rss feed

Hi, yes, plugin is selected by the feed URL. You can write a plugin that understands all different URLs for feeds. Or if it's the same structure, eg there is always link with a URL your plugin just needs to understand that.

Nested RSS doesn't work.
