One solution is to take Windows MediaPlayer urls, they have both Flash and WMP plugin players.

http://nobelprize.org/cgi-bin/asxgen.as ... &year=2008
mms://wm.nobelprize.org/lecture/lecture ... tro_01.wmv

Create a static myownrss.xml with the mms links, you can give a local file in web.conf should work fine.
videofeed.Web,Nobel Prize=file:///C:/test/myownrss.xml

I have done several website to ps3ms rss converter utilities, I looked at the Nobel Prize webpages and would be very simple (from wmp based pages) to parse internal mms:// links. Atm I don't have time to create nobelprize.org converter.

Source of the .asx page where I took the internal mms:// medialink.
Code: Select all
<asx version = "3.0">

Flash player uses a proprietary Adobe rtmp:// streaming urls, so its usually a no-go. But they have a direct .mp4 links available, but it uses one-time md5 hashcode. This url renders a "I agree" web page and a direct download link. Here is an example, md5 hashcode changes on each page request.

So here it is all the information someone needs to implement an automatic NobelPrizeToRSS converter :-)
