RSS Feeds from YouTube – Navajo Word of the Day

November 25, 2011

Daybreakwarrior YouTube feed. Click to Expand.

Daybreakwarrior has been uploading a series called Navajo Word of the Day. He has been very good at explaining each word, its usage, and provides a few sample phrases. Each upload also has some detailed notes in the video description, I hope he continues with this.

Well, I want to keep up with these videos, but I don’t like clicking around YouTube. It’s dangerous to get onto YouTube, I get sucked in and end up watching 30 minutes worth of videos I didn’t originally plan on watching.  I’ve come up with a way to avoid the pull of YouTube at the same time keep up with the work that Daybreakwarrior is doing on his channel.

I’ve been keeping up with quite a few language blogs online by subscribing to their RSS feeds. If you aren’t familiar with RSS feeds, this video gives a short explanation about using Google Reader. It is really nice to go to one place and have access to the articles for each blog or website I follow. So, today I was wondering if YouTube channels have RSS feeds. I then found the video How to Create an RSS Feed From YouTube Channel that gave me just enough information to set up a feed in my Google Reader.

To put it simply, open your RSS reader of choice and subscribe to this URL:
          http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/users/daybreakwarrior/uploads

The text in red can be changed to follow other YouTube channels. This particular feed will display each of Daybreakwarrior’s video titles along with the text in the video description. The feed, unfortunately, will not display the video in the reader, but there is a nice blue link to click to go directly to the video.

Just another quick and easy tip to quickly access Navajo language content. Enjoy.
