I have a PHP file creating an XML/RSS feed to use with my Playstation portable but does'nt work right. The PSP won't add the RSS channel, with the PHP file making the XML doc., and when I createa stand alone XML/RSS file it Says communication with the server failed when trying to stream the files.

I know this is short and dirty. but here are some links that I used to do this, and my site. (please be nice kinda new to this and my site is hosted from my computer so dont overload it).Thank you all in advance.

Do you have a router, if so can you access your website from your no-ip
address without ending up on your router login page? If you can't access
your website on the same network, use your LAN IP Address instead.

I can help you get this thing up. My MSN: msn@trustabyss.com

Yes I can no problems connecting to the server using local ip(192.xxx.xxx.xxx and my no-ip address. on both my computer and the psp.

I can see and download the files to my psp but I can't get the rss stream to work. I have written my own xml file for streaming rss from some templates I have found, but those only get me as far as being able to add the RSS feed to the directory on the PSP, once I go to RSS on the PSP and try to get a song that is listed to stream it comes up with "communication with server failed (80431064)".

Hope that clears some things up. I am at a loss only thing I can guess is that the server is not handling the xml file the right way to stream mp3 files.
Help......

I have a PSP now, and it works. Try the "Network Update" feature.

Can you tell me how you got this to work...that is if you used the same links I used to set it up. I have and did have the newest firmware for the psp at the time of this post but still had errors.

Also I have it working using a VBS script to write the xml but it is clumsy and very time consuming to do,plus you have to redo it every time you change your list of music.

Also Lately the psp has been returning a 404 error on links that were fine a week ago and I have'nt changed anything since.

I originally used this set-up that did not work. http://www.psp411.com/show/guide/44/0/Streaming_Music_From_Your_PC_To_Your_PSP.html

as you can see from the many posts about this.

Thanks for your Help

That's weird that mine works and yours doesn't. This could be a problem with
the PSP itself. They have a free tech support number you can call; if you don't
have the information you got with your PSP, I can scan mine for you.

Are these links inside the XML file from your no-ip address? Can you access
your no-ip address (not local)? If so, I don't know what else to do. I tried. :/

Yes I can access everything fine it just comes up with the error cannot add channel. I am going to call PSP support today. The thing is I am not the only one with this problem.

I redid the feed using PSP RSS Feeder PHP file and it is still doing the same error.

As far as directly accessing the files from a browser I can do that.(locally and thru the internet).

Thank you for all your insight into this I am at a loss also.

I need to learn PHP so I can write my own. lol

ok Returning this from the dead...

Trust were you using php4 for this RSS feeder to work.

I have since learned a little about things most of you know already.

I have PHP 5 installed and everything is working fine but still cant get the rss feeder to work.

It is very strange that some of the peolple that are using this it works fine and others it does'nt...but with the exact same error.

seems as though it could be the php version.

please correct me if I am wrong.

I didn't try creating the RSS code you've suggested; I only listened to the feeds
from your website. I will try creating my own RSS feeds later on, that you tried in
the tutorial suggested above. I'm only saying that it's playable.

I figured it out!

The author of the PHP script added a \ at the end of the URL, and that
causes the browser to see it as server not found. I will fix this and post
a tutorial on how to patch it. Im sorry about all this. Not my fault.

Edit index.php

Quote:

$path = dirname($_SERVER['PHP_SELF']);
to
$path = substr(dirname($_SERVER['PHP_SELF']), 1);


and change


$baseurl = substr( $baseurl,0,(strlen($baseurl)-1) );
to
$baseurl = substr( $baseurl,0,(strlen($baseurl)) );


Edit: You're right, it doesn't work. I will try and fix it. :-(

I will check it out, but at least I patched the wrong URL bug. ;-)

The person that wrote THE FIX doesn't know how to explain real well. Even
after following his lame instructions, it still doesn't work. As a programmer
in PHP, he should fix his code. I know better than to release betas.

I agree, but I sort-a followed it he did help me with the print function"about removing it completely,dont forget the other ) at the end". I did post my code that I replaced and it works.



I posted the fix on other sites I have been following and am now getting bombarded with question...I think I know how you feel now.lol

DCLVXI has fixed the php file to work with Abyss... I have a link to it on my site or go to his... http://www.dclxvi.nl/psp_rss/ and download. Be sure to let him know how much you appreciate his efforts.... He is also making a Flash version of the same Feeder to work with the PSP.
