Actually, Firefox isn't recognizing that feed as a podcast anymore. Here's a podcast feed:
How can I add Google to the drop down menu?
Kind of confused. Can you show me how I would add Google for podcasts?
I am also interested in this, and as far as I can tell it has not been resolved as yet.
We are talking about adding audio podcasts, NOT text based RSS feeds to google reader.
There is no problem adding text RSS feeds.
refers to text feeds.
In about:config there seem to be entries specific to "audiofeeds"
if you go into applications in firefox preferences and find podcast, then whatever you change there is reflected in the above entries in about:config
I have tried to play around with it manually adding in
to try and force it to use google reader, but it has no effect.
Basically I want to be able to send podcast links directly to google reader from firefox.
Am I missing something, or is this really so difficult.
I also wanted to to this. This should work:
1. Go to about:config and search for browser.contenthandlers.types
2. The handlers there are consecutively numbered. Each handler consists of three values: title, type and uri. Find the highest number and add 1 to it for entries we are going to create.
3. Create the following strings for the websevice you want to use (I'll take the number 6 and Google as an example):
browser.contentHandlers.types.6.title = Google
browser.contentHandlers.types.6.type = application/vnd.mozilla.maybe.audio.feed
browser.contentHandlers.types.6.uri = http://fusion.google.com/add?feedurl=%s
4. I guess there also has to be a value for browser.audioFeeds.handlers.webservice, the subscribe dialog looked broken without it.
browser.audioFeeds.handlers.webservice = http://fusion.google.com/add?feedurl=%s
5. Restart Firefox
I haven't found a way to add multiple content types to the same handler (adding more than one separated by a comma or semicolon doesn't work), so the best way seems to be to duplicate the handlers with a modified content type.
The procedure should be the same for video podcasts, just replace audio with video in .type and use browser.videoFeeds instead of browser.audioFeeds.
Worked for me. Thanks!
Thank you, Insomaniac -- that worked like a charm. You're a gentleman and a scholar!
Thanks for your report but you've replied to a thread that's been dead for almost a year.
Locking this due to the age of the original posts.
