We have had a lot of users asking how to bring their favorite youtube channels into retickr. To be honest, at first I didn’t know either, but after some googling around it is actually pretty simple to build an rss feed for any youtube channel.
Here is how you do it.
Google provides a very simple formula so that anyone can build an rss feed with their own channel name.
So, take this url and replace “CHANNELNAMEHERE” with a channel of your preference and copy/paste it into the retickr “Add Custom Feed” screen and you will then have a youtube rss feed that will allow you to stream all of your favorite videos in retickr.
