To Add a Media RSS feed, click on the Other tab, and drag the Media RSS icon to your playlist. Then enter the Media RSS URL. This doesn't work with feeds that use HTML tags, and we currently only support images over media rss.

Updated 6/24/2011 - Framchannel has announced they are closing their service. This service will no longer be available.

You can do it with the rss feed you can get from a frame channel account. For example, this is the rss feed from my framechannel account:

http://rss.framechannel.com/user=hd2000/pin=1234

The User in the URL is your login name and the pin is found on the advanced settings page. It's possible the URL listen in the image below is no longer available.

Edit: If you have a framechannel account, you can get the URL under Settings, Advanced:

Can "Transitions" be used with "Media RSS&quo

Mon Dec 28, 2009 9:38 am

Hello Lyndon,

Thanks for the "simplified" RSS link. I broke down and have it functioning off my server now. Question, can "transitions" be used between images that are controled by the "Media RSS" feed. Currently, it only has a 'cut'.

Thanks,

Matt L.

The correct link ist:

http://rss.framechannel.com/user=hd2000/pin=1234 and not ping :D
And there is no Url in the advanced settings but it works! 01/2010

http://rss.framechannel.com/user="username"/pin="XXXX" the pin is not your login! -> it is the player pin!

Ok, great. Thanks RokuLyndon very much. I really want to know this because in some days before I tried to convert a video into RSS feed, but I can't. Thank to you, I have the answer.

I've tested both a signchannel feed and a Screenfeed MRSS feed and both seem to flicker slightly.

The Screenfeed MRSS feed contains 3 images but only plays the the first one.

Can you think of what could be causing this?

I'm using BrightAuthor 2.0 with lastest Beta Firmware at 1920x1080

Thanks

If you playback images locally, you don't see this flicker?

If you enter your feed into a web browser, do you see all three images?

hopefully this is not a thread hijack, if so can it be moved. I am trying to experiment with the same thing and am curious about the rss parameters and what a sample might look like? Is the device mainly looking for a media:content tag in the rss feed to pull an image? And how do I control timing and the speed when using an rss feed?

I am also curious about this. How to set timing and transitions?

It would be nice if you could write a small manual on how the RSS works. It´s a bit fuzzy on what tags the player looks for.

Cheers!
