XML pages

  • This occurs both on my Anfroid phone and on my desktop computer. Opera does not seem to load xml pages correctly. I like to listen to poscasts but when I go to The Rachel Maddow Show for example I just get the xml page text. In windows I can high lite the link to the audio but on the droid that's a real pain. Is there a plugin I need or a setting to change to make this work?

  • From the very page in question:

    IF YOU ARE VIEWING THIS PAGE OF XML CODE, BUT THOUGHT YOU WERE CLICKING TO SUBSCRIBE TO OUR PODCAST, then please copy the URL from the address bar window above, and then paste it into the subscription function of your podcast application

    In other words its expecting you to try and open that page with iTunes or something, not a web browser. I get the exact same thing in Chrome as I do in Opera. It kind of works in Internet Explorer but I still have to download the .mp3 file if I want to use it. You'll find that near the bottom of the page if you are using Chrome or Opera. In your example it looks like this:

    http://msnbcpod.vo.llnwd.net/l1/audio/podcast/pd_maddow_mp3-07-31-2015-221541.mp3

  • You really need an RSS reader for that, not a web browser. There may be an extension that will recognize it as such (and Opera 12 would), but otherwise ...
