    I am moving from EE 1.x to 2.x—the applications involve podcasting (audio files)and had relied on the “feed_enclosures” module.

    Is there any support for podcasts (audio or video) in EE 2.x? There does not seem to be any module or core EE support for RSS feeds with enclosures. This seems like such an obvious thing—I’ve got to believe that this is supported and that I am just missing how to do it.

    I used to do this:

    <rss version="2.0" ...
      {exp:channel:entries channel="{master_channel_name}" limit="10" rdf="off" ...
          {exp:feed_enclosures type="rss" parse_list="y"}

    Take a look at file_oracle as a replacement for feed_enclosures:

    Hi DigitalDave,

    I’ll move this thread to the CodeShare Corner so that you can discuss this further if required.

    @Simon, thanks very much for helping out.

    I did a conversion of the old feed_enclosures plugin which got things working fine in EE 2. I don’t know if there are licensing issues, but I’d be happy to share if you’re looking for a fix.

    I’d love to see the updated module, and think it ought to be more widely available. I’d be happy to make that case to the original developer.

    Thanks Dave—I guess in this case that would be Paul Burdick and Adam Nolley. If you talk to them, let them know I also have the Scripturizer plugin converted… I also had to get the “itsnew” / “it’s new” plugin converted.  I’d love to share, but notice they have the copyright on the original code. Not sure these plugins are up to EllisLab code standards either, but they work!

    @ DigitalDave—
    Did you ever get this problem resolved? File Oracle, and the like, won’t work for my situation as the podcast files do not reside on my server. These extensions seem to only work with files on the server.

    @ inoa—
    Do you still have the EE2-updated feed_enclosures plugin? I’m trying to update it myself but running into errors.

    Really shocked that this is missing from EE and it’s community… Does anyone know of a similar plugin to File Oracle that can read the size of a file from a remote location (e.g. libsyn)?
