Xibo CMS 1.8.7 Custom - RSS Ticker Problem


#1

Hello,

The tickers
http://www.tagesschau.de/xml/tagesschau-meldungen/
and
http://www.tagesschau.de/xml/rss2

will not work in version 1.8.7 anymore. Everything was OK in version 1.8.5.

In 1.8.6, we started to check the Ticker URLs were sane types, as users started putting MPEG video streams and audio stream URLs in there, and the CMS would happily download those over and over and never complete.

It looks like one of your feeds send a mime type of text/html rather than text/xml or similar as we would expect.

If you have control over the source server, you could correct that, or you can adjust the CMS code to accept text/html as a valid type for tickers. You’d need to do that in two places:

and

The other feed parsing error will need to be looked at in more detail as the feed looks OK generally.


#3

As Alex has mentioned the first feed fails due to the content type.
We have decided to add support for text/html feeds - https://github.com/xibosignage/xibo/issues/1452
it will be added to the next release.

As for the second feed, it’s application/xml and it did work without any problems for me.

Could you please let us know if the issue with that second feed persists for you?
If so, could you export your layout with that feed, so I can look at the same thing as you?
(send it over private message please)

We are having exactly the same problem with feed #2 (http://www.tagesschau.de/xml/rss2) here in our company after migrating from Xibo 1.8.2 to 1.8.7. It’s very annoying, please help!

Regards,
Matthias

Same Problem here, in 1.8.9 - parsing error on RSS Feed
http://www.ynet.co.il/Integration/StoryRss3254.xml

used to work in 1.8.3 and 1.8.1.

This one seems to work for me in 1.8.9, it’s application/xml I believe I’d expect it to work in earlier versions as well, but upgrade to 1.8.9 could be a good idea.

That is also reporting application/xml, it should work in 1.8.9.

That being said I did get Unable to get feed: XML parsing error on this feed, however after I saved it to my local /userscripts folder, renamed it and put the local url in my ticker it was able to parse it.

I also removed the line from it <?xml version="1.0" encoding="WINDOWS-1255"?> ( I mean the encoding)

As such I’d say that it is either that line I mentioned or more likely something in the server that hosts the feed that makes it unavailable for Xibo.


#7

The very same. Link rss (ynetnews) works find on 1. 8.3 and 1.8.1 testing env i have…
The recent changes seems to break something…


#8

Getting back again, this time on another RSS feed on CMS 1.8.9, still getting XML Parsing error
the feed type is ok -
Content-Type →text/xml; charset=Windows-1251

https://www.securitylab.ru/_services/export/rss/news/

does any RSS with Encoding attributes will fail to parse ?
