I just read this on OLDaily ~ by Stephen Downes in my RSS reader.
apparently YouTube has decided to allow users to follow channels via RSS again,
It seems to work, I’ve aded my own channel to my RSS reader, Inoreader, and it worked fine. Tested in a WordPress sidebar widget and here using the RSS Via Shortcode for Page & Post WordPress Plugins
[rssonpage rss="https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCc0gdVM7MLneoiJHp4HUqkA" feeds="4" excerpt="summary" target="_blank"]
Gives me links to my last 4 videos.
The feeds seem to lack description, inoreader (and I’d guess other RSS readers) pick up the video from the media:content tag (I’d guess).
This could be useful for bringing content together with other feeds. Perhaps YouTube will bring back tags too…
