Description Murray Stokely 2008-12-03 21:20:00 UTC
We have a new YouTube Channel for BSD content. There is a rich set of YouTube gdata apis to extract the videos from this channel. The web build should download the RSS/AtomPub feed, extract videos from this channel tagged 'freebsd', and add them to the multimedia page. The YouTube channel is at : http://www.youtube.com/bsdconferences and the multimedia page I'm referring to is here : http://www.freebsd.org/multimedia/multimedia.html Information about the YouTube APIs is available here : http://code.google.com/apis/youtube/overview.html

Note that in order to do this properly, we have a couple of pre-requisites. For one thing, we need If-Modified-Since: support added to fetch(1) so that we can easily check RSS feeds in the web build without overloading web servers. This is addressed in this PR : http://www.FreeBSD.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=bin/87841 Then we need to decide on a standard way for the web build to cache content from other web servers between builds. I propose storing downloaded RSS feeds in $TMPDIR/webbuild so that the downloaded feeds persist between builds (e.g., we can't keep it in $OBJDIR or make clean will wipe it out) but not between reboots. We can then call fetch with the new -i argument added by the patch in that PR to only download the content if the remote RSS file is newer than the cached version in $TMPDIR/webbuild. The rest is just simple XSLT/Makefile glue to actually parse and include dynamic content from external RSS feeds to our website. This may make sense for Flickr, YouTube, Yahoo Upcoming, or other services. - Murray
