YouTube RSS Feeds

Pessimist: “It can’t get any worse!”
Optimist: “Oh yes it can!”

I use DEVONthink a lot to stay up-to-date on Journal articles and other, more entertaining sources of information (see Digital Information Infrastructure with DEVONthink and Keeping Up with Scientific Literature). However, YouTube no longer supports the

RSS feeds. But luckily, you can still get links to the videos via:

https://www.youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?user=CHANNELNAME

As usual, stackexchange (here: stackoverflow) is extremely helpful in these cases.

So, for example, if you want to subscribe to Thunderf00ts videos via RSS feeds, you can do so by using:

https://www.youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?user=Thunderf00t

Only disadvantage — now the YouTube page opens directly in DEVONthink. But you can simply click on the HTML link to open the page in your usual browser (an issue because I usually download the videos with a video downloader — no need to waste bandwidth if I want to watch them again and some videos have disappeared over time).
