I'd like to be able to display the thumbnails contained in MRSS feeds like this one: http://video.newsday.com/global/category.asp?c=71799&clienttype=rssmedia
The problem is, the %ENCLOSUREURL% tag is trying to pull the video clip rather than the embedded thumb. So it seems like %ENCLOSUREURL% pulls from the feed's media:content tag rather than the media:thumbnail tag by default. Is there any way to change that? Ideally, I wonder if there's a way to dictate what RSS tag %ENCLOSUREURL% looks to for the thumbnail on a case-by-case basis.

Unfortunately, no :-( The support for MRSS in this case was rather "hacked in" after it became popular (Feed Digest's technology is now two years old) and we didn't have the fields for this info. The "next version" of Feed Digest supports this, but is not yet rolled out, and is a separate thing (because updating the existing system would put it at too much risk and we're serving billions of digests a year so have to remain reliable :-)). So.. it's bad news, sorry!Posted 10 years ago #
