hi rejetto,  

  the problem with that is that when you access the rss feed file you end up accessing a mp3 file in the protected music folder so HFS correctly requires a password for that too, so using a PSP fails on the feed.  

One thing i have just thought of is that from my work pc i have accessed the passworded mp3s using winamp and it streamed them nicely enough.
i am wondering if a url like this  

       http://user:pass:86.123.145.56:port/music/name.mp3  

might be a viable address that can be put in the rss feed file. then if the rss link is on a passworded web page, only the owner can access it.

i can't test that today as i havnt left my pc on at home (in at work now).
ill try tommorrow if i remember.lol... and let you know what i find.

         cheers silky

just read this on a site


4.7.3 Gathering from password-protected servers
You can gather password-protected documents from HTTP and FTP servers. In both cases, you can specify a username and password as a part of the URL. The format is as follows:


         ftp://user:password@host:port/url-path
        http://user:password@host:port/url-path

With this format, the ``user:password'' part is kept as a part of the URL string all throughout Harvest. This may enable anyone who uses your Broker(s) to access password-protected documents.


sounds like it could be possible. ill try at home tonight via my wireless lan and let you know anything i find!!!!

First off I tried it doesn’t work and second its not very safe because all someone would have to do is edit the RSS.xml file and see the user: pass in plain English as well as if the went to info on the song for the RSS.xml feed.

Example of RSS.xml file
Code: [Select]
<rss version="2.0">
  <channel>
    <title>LanRSS</title>
    <description>For internal network use</description>
    <link>http://XXX:XXXXXXXX@192.168.2.2:8080</link>
    <lastBuildDate>Wed, 21 Dec 2005 12:00:01 -0500</lastBuildDate>
    <pubDate>Wed, 21 Dec 2005 11:59:13 -0500</pubDate>
    <item>
      <title>Creed - Torn.mp3</title>
      <description></description>
      <link>http://XXX:XXXXXXXX@192.168.2.2:8080/</link>
      <enclosure url="http://XXX:XXXXXXX@192.168.2.2:8080/Private/Music/My%20Music/Creed%20-%20Torn.mp3" length="" type="Audio/MP3"></enclosure>

    </item>
  </channel>
</rss>

hiya siy11.

i just tried it too, failed as before, although winamp takes the address fine so it must be the workings of the PSP.

as for the editing of the rss feed, i would of put my rss feed link on a passworded page so only myself could access the link....but nevermind hey lol.


must dash.  may have time later to try a few things..
