What is XML and Pod?

XML / RSS Feed

http://churchofchriststm.org/ offers XML / RSS feeds for audio sermons. By subscribing to an XML / RSS feed you can have the latest content delivered directly to your XML enabled website or desktop.

Benefits of RSS

  • You control which RSS channel you would like to view.
  • You only view headlines and descriptions, making it easy for you to scan topics.
  • The link will take you directly to that article or broadcast.
  • You are alerted when the site is updated.
     

Help Getting Started with a News Reader

You need to install an RSS feed reader (see our list of popular RSS readers below). Once you have a reader installed, subscribe to any RSS feeds by copying the xml url into your reader. To subscribe to the channel, right-click on the XML icon on the website and choose Copy Shortcut. Switch to your reader and follow the menus to add the channel (see specific reader documentation). Once you have subscribed, your reader will automatically check the channel for updates.

Podcasting Feeds

Podcasting is much like an RSS Feed (see above), except instead of receiving new content to read, you receive new audio content to listen to with an MP3 player. A Podcasting receiver automatically downloads new MP3's as they are added to http://churchofchriststm.org/ which can then be directly added to your portable MP3 player or played on your desktop using an MP3 compatible player.

Help Getting Started with Podcasting

You need to install a Podcasting Receiver (see our list of popular Podcasting appplications below). Once you have a receiver installed, subscribe to any Podcasting feed by copying the xml url into your reader. To subscribe to the channel, right-click on the PodCast icon on the http://churchofchriststm.org/ site and choose Copy Shortcut. Switch to your receiver and follow the menus to add the channel (see specific application documentation). Once you have subscribed, your receiver will automatically check the channel for updates.

The format used is RSS 2.0 with enclosures.
