    A little index of the guides:

    1) Adding iTunes videoPodcasts to OnlineVidoes (Down Here)

    2) Adding Youtube User's Video to OnlineVidoes

    3) Adding Youtube playlists to OnlineVidoes



    Adding iTunes videoPodcasts to Online Vidoes

    First of all download itunes: Apple - iTunes - Download iTunes Now

    After installing it and rebooting, launch itunes:

    0.select your song from the hd (itunes is a very goooooood player)

    1. go to iTunes Store

    [​IMG]

    2. select Video Podcast

    3. select a podcast clicking on an icon

    4. at the opening you will see something like the picture down here... click on a (u will get the last episode downloaded every time you open iTunes) or b, better, (it will download only this episode)

    [​IMG]

    5. go to Podcast

    [​IMG]

    6. select the podcast u have downloaded

    7 select "show description"

    [​IMG]

    8. u'll get a window where is the url of the podcast

    9.open mediaportal configuration and rewrite the url (u can't copy/paste) to mediaportal onlineVideos plugin (u know how to do it right?)

    NB don't use "copy podcast url" or something like this cause it doesn't work!

    REMEMBER WE NEED YOUR HELP!

    That's great features!

    Maybe i ve a different version of iTunes but actually i'm using the "copy Podcast URL" menu and paste it directly on medialportal onlineVideos
    configuration and all work great.
    As i'm adding in mediaportal lots of podcasts i'm not sure how to backup these configurations in case of a new installation or an upgrade of the onlinevideos.
    Any idea?

    Hi, i'm trying to add a feed but i get locked, the rss contains no video but links to the page with the video, i have figured out what the "link" between both is but don't know how to make this work.

    RSS = http://www.nuvideo.nl/feeds/frontpage.rss

    On this page are no videos, but there are pictures, if i could scrape the pictures on that page as thumbs and then add a argument to change the filename from "_m.jpg" to ".flv" it would work i quess

    For instance:
    "http://media.nu.nl/m/m1dzu7qa0bf9_m.jpg"
    "http://media.nu.nl/m/m1dzu7qa0bf9.flv"

    I have looked in the advance configuration of other sites but it doesnt make sence to me

    Thx for any help

    I guess you should get started with Regexes, because with those you can add them pretty well.

    Is it possible to use Podcast RSS-streams such as this:

    The Linux Action Show! Video

    If so how do I set that up? Is it the same way as the Itunes URLs?
