MRSS - update interval
« on: October 10, 2012, 01:32:13 AM »
What's the update interval on MRSS? And is there a way to disable randomness?

Hi,

The system checks for new content everytime the feed ends, no way to control the sequence on how the feed plays as this depends on how the feed was programmed.

Actually Admin, in the video tutorial for RSS/News/Podcast time at 5:30, it is mentioned that the system is smart enough to randomize the Media RSS videos order to keep the content fresh.

I'm trying to remember, but when I was running news from screenfeed, they added a skip or something like that to the URL...I'll have to look and see if I still have it...I don't...but they were helpful about doing that.

Good!

Like criley says, the MRSS is randomized, so we have no control of the sequence. Really hope you can remove or create a checkbox to turn random off, admin.
