I was just looking through the RSS feeds produced by Video module and noticed that it did not appear to support the widely used Media RSS standard properly. It supports the <enclosure> tag but then duplicates that for a <media> tag which is not correct as far as I'm aware.

To support MRSS, we need to add the namespace for it (xmlns:media="http://search.yahoo.com/mrss") and use the tags (e.g., media:content) as specified in the specs above.

Oops, that should be xmlns:media="http://search.yahoo.com/mrss/" - I'd copied the one from YouTube but it looks like they're not following the spec. Argh, how many other big sites aren't following the specs for extending their RSS?

Patch attached:

  • Adds the xmlns for MRSS
  • Puts the correct content element into the media namespace
  • Adds other metadata as defined by MRSS from the video node if it is available - this makes it work nicely with #234832: Mapper for Video Module to share video node content between Drupal sites

The -both patch includes the fix for #234858: RSS enclosure created breaks feed
