Re: [rss-media] how to get "media" layout by default
- AFAIK, Media RSS doesn't specify any layout. It's just talks about
media, metadata etc.
MY! might be doing things because it might be programmed that way...
You can also detect media module and do such things...

- Thanks for responding.
Yes, I understand that MY! works the way it does
because it's programmed that way. :) What I don't
understand is how MY! makes its decision based
on content. For example, I thought maybe if the
media content were "image/jpeg" then MY! would
put it in the media layout... MY! has to be looking
at SOMETHING in the RSS file, unless it specifically
knows that, eg, Dilbert, goes in the media layout
because Dilbert is registered with MY!
- Yup! There can be some (layout) algorithm which decides the place for
different content-type and it is also possible there is a list.

I am making a client to for Media RSS feeds. I am wondering, if there is
a place where I can find all media-rss feed listed.
Currently, I am searching and opening individual sites to see if it has
MRSS module... I found couple of RSS directories but there are too many
feeds, it's hard to verify manually..
Does any of search engine just return result with media-rss module ?
I have been using Media RSS and trying to understand it more. I have
been posting my thoughts on my blog, please check it out. I would love
to see the comments/perspectives.
