Hi Rick,

I tried this link:
<rss name="Top Video"><![CDATA[http://rss.music.yahoo.com/charts/rssTopVideos.xml]]></rss>
I get an answer, but it does not return anything

Let´s hope someone solve the problem

/Chris

Hi Chris,
I think it is possible, since Yahoo uses RSS as well.
Here is some info on Yahoo and shows how to get it in iTunes.
I believe it must be possible. Yahoo! Search Blog: Video Search To Go!


I tried to add a new site to my OnlineVideoSites.xml and use the search, but it does not show any output.
The ' {0} ' gives me the search field, but it does not return anything.

<site>
<name>Yahoo</name>
<id>51</id>
<user></user>
<password></password>
<confirm></confirm>
<enabled>yes</enabled>
<rss name="Search"><![CDATA[http://api.search.yahoo.com/VideoSearchService/rss/videoSearch.xml?appid=ysearchblog&adult_ok=0&results=50&format=mpeg&query={0}]]
></rss>
</site>

It would be super cool if someone could get this to work.

/Rick
change the id to 50 and it should work
Code:
<id>50</id>

There is an experimental yahoo music video parser in version 0.32.

paste the following in your OnlineVideoSites.xml to try it:
Code:
<site>
    <name>Yahoo Music</name>
    <id>30</id>
    <enabled>yes</enabled>
    <rss name="Top 20"><![CDATA[http://new.music.yahoo.com/videos/charts/]]></rss>
    </site>
It only works with the US site.

like i said it's experimental. it works for me if i have 'use mplayer for all videos' checked.

I'll try to work on it some more for the next release.

Howdy,

Thanks gregmac45. I confirm the top 20 works in my setup. I am using Mplayer for all OnlineVideo playback.
The search still does not work.
I do not understand the id tag. Why should 50 work and not 51?
Does the search in Yahoo work for anyone else?

That is a real bummer about stage6. There is a lot of content on there.

Thanks,
Rick

Each id is for a specific parser or "Site Util" as they are called in the plugin. 50 is the ID for the generic parser. There is no parser with ID 51.

The yahoo search worked for me. Here is the entry in my OnlineVideoSites.xml
Code:
<site>
      <name>Generic</name>
      <id>50</id>
      <user>
      </user>
      <password>
      </password>
      <confirm>no</confirm>
      <enabled>yes</enabled>
      <rss name="MSDN"><![CDATA[http://channel9.msdn.com/rss.aspx?ShowID=1]]></rss>
      <rss name="Revision1"><![CDATA[http://revision3.com/systm/feed/wmv-large/]]></rss>
      <rss name="Revision2"><![CDATA[http://feeds.ziffdavis.com/ziffdavis/dltvwmvvideo?format=xml]]></rss>
      <rss name="Yahoo"><![CDATA[http://api.search.yahoo.com/VideoSearchService/rss/videoSearch.xml?appid=ysearchblog&adult_ok=0&resul ts=50&format=mpeg&query={0}]]></rss>
    </site>
I searched for 'cat'.

Hi gregmac45,

ok, so i will wait to the next version.
Another questions:
1) Is it possible to sort the favorites?
2) Is it possible to play the favorites in queue (so i can start and hear/view song/video by song/video) without break and input?

greetings chris

Hi Again,
I am still trying to understand this plugin, since it can play so much online content (and there is a lot out there).

I do not understand why the following does not return anything:
<rss name="Silverscreen"><![CDATA[http://quicksilverscreen.com/rss/channel?c=44]]></rss>

I have it in 50 Generic.


Thanks,
Rick

More info (trying to understand:)
If I add the above link to: <name>Live Video</name> <id>21</id>
I get a list of the videos, but no thumbs and if I click any of them the screen goes black, but no playback.
If I add the link to: <name>VidiLife</name> <id>14</id>
I get a list, no thumbs, and it will not go anywhere when clicked.
So I would like to know where it should be and how do I tell where a site is best placed.

Thanks again,
Rick
