XML feeds for Listen Again content
BBC Radio supports multi-platforms, so we also have multi-formats to support that. How do we make sure we are providing this in a machine readable way that helps people expose our content more?
If you've been following Tom's blog, you'll have noticed that we are now happily creating feeds of data that provide availability information about all our Listen Again (Audio-On-Demand / AOD) content.
I've put together some documentation from our internal tests and subsequent wider 'beta' tests with some of the aggregators and device manufacturers.
"Every 3 hours, it contains everything that is available now (as per update). It also contains everything that will become available in the next 48 hours." excerpt from docs
I'm presenting this documentation as I think we are ready to find out how it works for others. You can feedback on aodfeed at bbc dot co dot uk (yes - this email now works for anyone who has tried it previously) or to myself - email@example.com. Or indeed, feel free to comment here and I will attempt to collate.
