This section offers links for RSS and OAI subscriptions.


RSS

Introduction

A RSS feed is available for various feed readers. Internet Explorer has already an automatic build-in feed reader.



The RSS feed only shows public recordings unless you have first signed in on the Presentations 2Go video server.

Query parameters


The RSS feed request can be customized using query parameters. You can use the following filters:

?type=latest        Latest published recordings
?type=most        Most watched recordings
?type=top        Best rated recordings
?max=10        Limit the amount of records
?title=educational%20research        Search, use %20 as space between 2 words

Or a combination: ?type=most&max=5&title=educational%20research

OAI

Introduction

OAI is a harvesting protocol for library systems. Default only public available content will be listed. The presentations 2Go video server offers 2 types of metadata formats: IMS-LOM and Dublin Core. You need to add query arguments to the default link to communicate with the OAI service:

Dublin core: http://yourserver.com/P2G/OAIConnector.aspx?verb=ListRecords&metadataPrefix=oai_dc



IMS-LOM: http://yourserver.com/P2G/OAIConnector.aspx?verb=ListRecords&metadataPrefix=oai_lom



Query parameters


To query the OAI engine you always need to start your query with: “?verb=”. Often you need to combine queries. The second parameter definition always starts with “&”. The following parameters can be used to query the Presentations 2Go video server:

  • Identify; use this parameter to get the videoserver details.
    Example:        ?verb=Identify
  • ListMetadataFormats; use this parameter to get the list with available metadata formats
    Example:        ?verb= ListMetadataFormats
  • ListIdentifiers; use this parameter to get a records summary showing only identifier, timestamp and status. This parameter always needs to be combined with MetadataPrefix.
    Example:        ?verb= ListIdentifiers&MetadataPrefix=OAI_LOM
  • GetRecord; use this parameter to get the full metadata details of one record. This parameter always needs to be combined with MetadataPrefix and Identifier
    Example:        ?verb=GetRecord&MetadataPrefix=OAI_LOM&Identifier= 4195-44cf-929b-68ff9900989f
  • ListRecords; use this parameter to get the full metadata details of multiple records. This parameter always needs to be combined with MetadataPrefix.
    Example:        ?verb=ListRecords&metadataPrefix=OAI_LOM
  • From+Until;        A special time filter can be added to the parameters ListRecords and ListIdentifiers.
    Example:        ?verb=ListRecords&from=2012-01-01&until=2012-09-30&metadataPrefix=OAI_LOM
