Hey Folks.

Here's the feed I'd like in the video - now how do I get it there?

I went into; AppBox/ Video / My Feeds

And when I put in there it doesn't read it?

feed://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/base/users/News1News/uploads?alt=rss&v=2&orderby=published&client=ytapi-youtube-profile

Hey Jen,

Here's what i've done.

original.
feed://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/base/users/News1News/uploads?alt=rss&v=2&orderby=published&client=ytapi-youtube-profile

new.
http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/base/users/News1News/uploads?alt=rss&v=2&orderby=published&client=ytapi-youtube-profile.xml

Here's my only beef... I'd like the images of the videos to display, but instead it's just showing the YouTube logo? Any idea as to why and how can I fix it?

You would have to write your own rss app for it. This is what youtube sends out.

Is that even possible? I mean if YouTube is sending out the RSS feed, how can I write or rewrite the RSS so that it can automatically update?

Im also using Miro and the videos all list the thumbnails here's a screenshot along with the RSS URL that I copied from miro

And when I enter the feed into Boxee, I still don't see the thumbnails :(

FIXED!

I figured it out....

To get the thumbnails for videos from YouTube here's the code

http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/users/user/uploads?alt=rss

Just change the user to whomever - that being said the only thing I can't figure out is to change the logo so that it would reflect the logo of the channel rather then "YouTube". (screenshot sample below)

Hi
If you bookmark a youtube video page URL, playlist page URL or user/channel page URL to delicious, and then view it via DeliTV, the feeds will be automgically identified for you by DeliTV.

For example, see "Watching YouTube Videos on Boxee via DeliTV" [ http://ouseful.wordpress.com/2009/09/19/watching-youtube-videos-on-boxee-via-delitv/ ]
