What RSS feeds you should be using

While the move to WordPress has gone fairly well, I’ve see some questions on Twitter about which feed to use. On the old blog, there were a few different feeds doing a variety of things. With the latest move, I’ve cleaned things up and tried to make it easier for everyone.

Here are the only three feeds you should be using from this site:

 

General RSS Feed:
Use this one if you want a feed of everything I post on the site:

http://feeds.feedburner.com/MajorNelson

I don’t recommend you use this feed to listen to or subscribe to the podcast, as it’s not optimized for that. Instead, use the one below

 

Podcast (Optimized for most listening scenarios)
This is the best (and only feed) that you should be using to receive the podcast:

http://feeds.feedburner.com/mnitunes

This is the master feed that is piped into the Zune and iTunes. It has been designed, built and tested to work with the widest variety of web, desktop and mobile applications and devices including Google Reader.
Do not use any other feed except the one above to ensure you get all of the shows as quickly as possible.

Marketplace
This one contains just items I categorize as Marketplace

http://feeds.feedburner.com/xboxlivemarketplace

This one is helpful if you want to keep track of just high profile releases (like Demos, Game add-ons, Arcade releases etc.) This does not contain everything that is posted on the Marketplace, just things I make a blog post about.

 

Hopefully this will help and let me know in the comments if you have any questions.

Technical Note: This weeks show is being presented as an enhanced .M4A file. In addition to using a modern codec that results in better sound and smaller file size, if your media player supports it you may see chapter markers, URL’s and/or contextual artwork for some areas of the podcast.

 

Please leave a comment and let me know what you think of this new format.

 

If your player does not support M4A, you can download the regular un-enhanced MP3 file here.
