Feed Formats


On this page, you create various feed formats to use with the any Arena portal. You need to setup a separate feed for each file type you would like to podcast, e.g., MP3, MP4, MOV, AVI, etc. For this example, we use MP3 for audio and MP4 for video.

Setup a Feed Format

1.          Click the Add New Feed Format link.

2.          Complete all fields.

Title – This is the title for the feed format.

Descriptor – Enter an optional description for the feed format.

MIME Type – Enter MIME Type of the file type you want this feed to handle. The above example is set to audio/mpeg which is the MIME type for mp3 audio files.

Enclosure Required - Choose whether to require Enclosure. RSS enclosures are a way of attaching multimedia content to RSS feeds by providing the URL of a file associated with an entry, such as an MP3 file to a music recommendation.

Public Format – This check box determines whether this feed format is made available for public users to subscribe to.

XSLT URL – Enter the URL for the xslt file that will setup the RSS feed. Arena comes with a basic default xslt file. In the example above, the relative path to the Arena default xslt file is shown.

3.          Click the Update button.

4.          Repeat all steps to add other feed formats.

5.          Now you are ready to setup Podcast Channels.
