I am configuring RSS for the first time and I am not quite sure of how to configure that even in the classic way (my laptop for instance). Now I was requested to publish some RSS in a dsiplay and I think I did but my screen stays in "Loading RSS..."
I was looking for documentation that explains the process but I did not find any. I'd appreciate if you can share your experience on that on clear steps.
Thanks in advance!
This is a known issue.
CSCte67952 - DMD: RSS will not work after upgrade to 5.2
The RSS ticker is not showing some content after upgrading to 5.2.
This is because DMD in version 5.2 uses Flash to display the RSS ticker
And the Flash 9 and 10 player has built in security to not allow content
from another domain.
This security feature is blocking the content.
There are several options available:
1: Only use RSS feeds from sites that allow cross site scripting.
2: Use a service line "Yahoo Pipes" service that acts as a proxy. This
will result in a a new URL that can be used in the DMD, bypassing
any cross-site scripting.
If you use the standard RSS feed in the Signage Design tool, it will work
with any RSS feed you have and you don't need a crossdomain policy file.
Cross Domain refers only to Adobe Flash Player and the ability to read
content from other domains. Its a security issue
As an example:
If your SWF file is hosted on www.cisco.com/flash/myflash.swf
And that SWF want to read any content (xml, rss, etc..) from rss.cisco.com/myrss/xml
That is allowed. If that same SWF file tries to access data on www.google.com/somedata.x
ml That would require a crossdomain.xml at cisco.com/crossdomain.xml that
lists google.com This allows the Flash player to access content at google.com
