Ticket #1949 (closed enhancement: fixed)
Support RSS enclosures
|Reported by:||jeroen||Owned by:||ed|
Some older podcast tools like this one export RSS feeds with just enclosures. Some JW5 publishers using these feeds ( like this one) would like to upgrade to JW6, but JW6 doesn't support the <enclosure> tag at present.
We should add support for the element in JW6. Here's an example tag:
<enclosure url="http://example.com/podcast.mp3" type="audio/mpeg" />
Publishers should be aware that using plain RSS with enclosures is not an ideal setup, because:
- RSS does not support poster images or test tracks (captions,thumbnails)
- The "enclosure" element does not support setting a label and default.
