Using Folder and Playlist RSS Feeds

RSS is a web feed format used to publish frequently updated content such as blog entries, news headlines, and podcasts. Recipients subscribe to the feed by adding the URL to an RSS aggregator and then receive updates whenever new content is added.

 

RSS feeds can be created and shared for public folders, and public or hidden playlists on Screencast.com. After enabling a folder or playlist RSS feed, you can share the URL with recipients or they can go to the folder or playlist and copy the RSS URL.
