Downloading RSS Feeds (XMLs) using DownloadFile()

Post by djrikki » Wed Apr 25, 2012 9:47 pm

Hi,

Yesterday I tried downloading an XML feed via Feedburner, no luck, reported HTTP Error 2000 occurred.

Today I tried a bbc feed: http://feeds.bbci.co.uk/news/world/rss.xml

And the first parameter reported 'Unsupported HTTP transfer mode!'.

Also http://feeds.reuters.com/Reuters/worldNews

Reports HTTP Error 2000 occured.

Any clue why this is happening Andreas?

The HTTP error 2000 has already been reported by somebody and it's already fixed in my current version. The other error ("Unknown transfer mode!") still occurs. I'll try to fix this one as well. So thanks for the report!

@andreas

Please can you be so kind to try out this rss xml feed in your Hollywood 5.x dev-build.

http://itunes.apple.com/gb/rss/topsongs ... 9%26url%3D

At present I just get: "Unsupported HTTP transfer mode!"

Thank you.

When can we grab the new Version of the Hollywood-Compiler?

I´m asking because my last release of Flipclock V1.1 is facing more and more Network-Problems with external WGET and the new Version is waiting for this Fix to remove the WGET-Dependence.

Can't tell a release date right now. It's just not clear at the moment when 5.1 will be ready.

Btw, the Android version of Hollywood already contains all fixes to DownloadFile(). So you can check for yourself if everything works correct now by testing the DownloadFile() command of the Android version.
