Better way to notify about new @eevblog videos
« on: June 07, 2020, 11:44:46 am »
It was discussed before in twitter and it seems Dave feeling negative impact from this, that many notifications about eevblog youtube videos are missing. I found way to not miss them and to subscribe to specific topics, as Dave meticulously adding videos to relevant playlists.
Solution is good&old RSS feed. Youtube have them for playlists:
https://feeder.co/knowledge-base/rss-feed-creation/youtube-rss/
So for example dumpster dive RSS feed for eevblog2 channel: https://www.youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?playlist_id=PL24OiKqd2iN_BG6NhtYFSSCoE9nYKujT3
I think if someone can help to make good guide (as my english skills are shitty as hell and for sure silly mistakes i do irritating for many) it will be great. Maybe we can find together best software for most common OS/browsers as well.
Another option is to fetch youtube feeds and provide them over eevblog website (as "semi-proxy"), it will give Dave option to gather statistics about his subscribers interests, and he will plan his new releases topics accordingly.

Whole point is about subscribing to particular topic. Maybe someone don't like debunking and eeblab, but want to see each dumpster diving.
Youtube subscriptions don't have option to do such selective subscription. With RSS feed it is possible.
