Problem parsing MRSS feeds from deviantART

Postby gekiboy » Sun Jul 05, 2009 5:58 am

One of the feed URLs I'm trying is this one:

http://backend.deviantart.com/rss.xml%3 ... ion?source\x3dignitionfork

The feed loads fine when I load it into Google Reader, and it does have images attached. When I first tried pulling it in to the server, it showed up as a feed called Popular on the PS3. Inside the feed, the thumbnails for the images loaded up and I was able to view the first image successfully full screen. After this, I tried viewing other images from the feed and none of them would load. Since then, I've tried hooking up some other feeds and I've restarted the server a couple of times and now the feed instead shows up as a number, and when I look inside it says it contains no images. Other feeds, such as Flickr, still work.

Strangely enough, although I can view the pages in my browser and it loads into Google Reader, the debug information in the Trace claims a 403 error. Here is the output of trace:

Any suggestions would be great.

Guess the user agent used by the server is not accepted by your site... the client-side networking code has to be changed, so it's not high priority
