Ok so I have a dumb question. I resaved the file as xml cdgvideo.xml and it renders and the RSS validator says it is OK as an RSS feed. I submitted this to yahoo video search again last week.
I notice your file is saved as htm file extension. Does this matter to Yahoo if it is .xml or .htm in the RSS media submission. I don’t have the capability to create the definitions folder for the xml so I can save as a .htm.

this is really a question - I notice that when I view the feed linked
above, I see the plain text of the feed - not displayed as I would
expect if its type was text/xml --- I notice that you output
text/plain? Is that a problem?
