Subscribing to YouTube channels in Miro

Here’s a tip for using Miro (formerly Democracy Player), the kick-ass TV-on-your-computer video playing software.

If you want to subscribe to the videos of a particular user on YouTube, you can get an RSS feed of those videos by adding a channel like this to Miro:

http://www.youtube.com/rss/user/[insert username here]/videos.rss

You can also get RSS feeds for all videos with a particular tag, like:

http://www.youtube.com/rss/tag/linux.rss

Where in this case, the tag you are interested in is ‘linux’.

I discovered this when trying to figure out to subscribe to somecallmejim’s “Edit” video editing tips videos. He’s been offline for a few months now … hope his problems pass over and he comes back.

Official YouTube docs about this feature are here.

  1. Thanks! This was exactly what I was looking for. For some reason I don’t find things very easily on YouTube’s website. Their help section is non-intuitive to me.

    Anyhow, thanks again. ^_^

  2. Thanks for this, I’ve just searching for how to invent custom Youtube feeds and this is certainly the simplest so far.

    Thanks for sharing.
