Using MRSS feeds
MRSS is short for Media RSS, an extension of the RSS format used for syndicating multimedia files (audio, video, image) in RSS feeds. When you create a playlist in the BIMvid Manager Application, a MRSS feed is automatically created. It follows a simple URL pattern pattern and uses the following elements:
- Player Source URL - http://player.bimvid.com/v1/feed
- User Identification - This will be the identification given to your publishing account and will be the same for all videos and playlists. This should match your BIMvid account name. This data can come from a root-level field that can be manually entered. For broadcast clients, it is usually your call letters. It is not case-sensitive.
- Key - This is unique for each playlist.
BIMvid MRSS feeds support RSS version 2.0. Full specifications can be found here: http://video.search.yahoo.com/mrss. MRSS video feeds are a good way for you to syndicate your video to other providers if needed.
