Using Folder and Playlist RSS Feeds

Rich Site Summary (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 when new content is published.

 

RSS feeds can be created and shared for public folders, public playlists, and 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.
