What is MRSS ?
MRSS is an extension of the RSS format (using XML format), which allows you to aggregate data and media information and automate your content syndication.
The Dailymotion MRSS Importer allows you to upload (and update) your videos, making them viewable and searchable on Dailymotion.com without any manual intervention.
How can I start to use this solution?
To use this feature, you must provide the following information:
- A feed structured in the Media RSS format (with or without login/password)
- Access to the repository hosting your videos (with or without login/password)
- The Dailymotion username associated with your channel
Once you have submitted your video feed to Dailymotion, we will periodically retrieve the items in the feed to identify changes and merge them into our platform (update the content already ingested and upload the new content).
You can define a processing frequency, and the imports will occur according to your desired schedule. The provided feed can contain all items for each import, or only new or updated items.
Preliminary steps for providers
Each MRSS file must contain the following items to be handled by our service:
- Title - Defines the video title displayed on Dailymotion
- Category - Defines the video category (list of categories)
- guid - A unique key set on your database to link the Dailymotion video and your video
- media:content - Direct link to the video hosted on your properties
We invite you to visit our DMRSS guide for a complete reference to Dailymotion's MRSS specifications.
