Hi All,

I am trying to read enclousre tags content inside item elements in rss feeds. I could easly retrive stardart rss 2.0 feeds by SyndicationFeed class. But I could not get enclosure tags content.

In the code section you could see what I mean.

Here is an example rss that I try to read..
http://www.nydailynews.com/rss.xml

it have enclosure tags inside item tags and these comes from  xmlns:media="http://search.yahoo.com/mrss/" extension.

I do not want to parse these xml diretly. 0s there a way to read these rss content by using .NET Framework Class Library
SyndicationFeed Class. In the code section there is the standart code that I use to get rss feeds.



SyndicationFeed feed = FeedReader.LoadFrom("http://www.nydailynews.com/rss.xml");
 
            foreach (SyndicationItem item in feed.Items)
            {
                //...what must I do to get enclosure content like image url..
            }

I can show you how to do this quite easily in PHP.  Would that be useful? ~Ray

Quel Fromage.  Good luck with it.

If you feel that this does not get a good answer fairly soon, delete the question and repost it.  Some Experts will overlook a question once it has a few posts because they assume it is getting an answer.  Obviously that is not the case here.  I will not object to the deletion, and your points will be refunded.

Best regards, ~Ray

I found the answer..

The following code do what I need exactly



   foreach (SyndicationLink enclosure in syndicationItem.Links.Where<SyndicationLink>(x => x.RelationshipType == "enclosure"))
                        {
                            Uri url = enclosure.Uri;
                            long length = enclosure.Length;
                            string mediaType = enclosure.MediaType;
                        }
