Hi All,

Thought I'd share this with everyone since it's been such a pain for me. Many of the youtube feed generator sites have died. So I was abe to finally find this solution to pull youtube rss feeds in mythstream. Hopefully a longterm solution.

1. Download the youtube parser patch. copy/paste. Save as youtube.patch in /home/foo/.mythtv/mythstream/parsers/youtube directory. Run patch < youtube.patch


I found this rss feed "mashup" for youtube playlists on yahoo pipes.


Here is the pipe:


Basically, plugin a gdata youtube rss link to spit back a rss feed that will work in mythstream.

gdata like: http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/playlists/E45E22E8976E8F57?max-results=50

Finished link:

http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.run?_id=9bf36a7dfbf2c9cb9101d4e7e1a4b3aa&_render=rss&urlinput1=http%3A%2F%2Fgdata.youtube.com%2Ffeeds%2 Fplaylists%2F[playlisthere]%3Fmax-results%3D50

Taking this link and plugin a playlist ID here [playlisthere] will return a rss feed list in Mythstream. Just change the playlist id in the right section of the RSS link will make a somewhat easy way to create youtube rss feeds for mythstream.

Enter that link into mythstream setup, or in your streams.res file formatted like:

Youtube Rss Feed
Youtube Feed Title

This pipe will work too. Easier to use as the plalist id is right at the end of the address.
