I was trying to add a new YouTube feed into Feedly and noticed that what Feedly was seeing was not matching what my browser saw. In fact, the newest post Feedly displayed was 297 days old. The specific feed in this case was the one for Mike Zeroh’s YouTube Channel whose most recent videos have been about Star Wars and theories concerning the latest movies.
In this instance, the feed URL I was using was:
which looked like this in Feedly:
As you can see, the newest video it sees is from November 2015 even though I could see the most recent ones when previewing the feed in Firefox before adding it to Feedly.
After doing some research, I found someone with the same issue and a workaround: Problem with a Youtube feed not updating. It turns out, you just need to add an extra query parameter to the end of the URL to force Feedly to see the latest posts. So, I modified the URL to:
to the end which did the trick! This was just the first thing that came into my head LOL. 🙂
Subsequently, while writing this post, I also realized that the following feed URL also works for his channel:
Anyway, hope this helps someone who runs across something similar with Feedly! 🙂
This worked perfectly. Thank you for this tidbit! I have to say… I wonder how many people now have Feedly feeds that say “?xray=bob” in them, just because they were too lazy to think of something else lol… or possibly, as a secret homage to you, as I did. 😉 Feel free to stop by susanpitman.com and say hello, I’d love to hear from you.
Ah, this is _such_ a good trick, I hadn’t thought of using a query param as a cache buster 🙂
Thanks for the help! 🙂 This really helped me debug a couple issues with my RSS feed. -> kn8ideas.com
