-With the current version of Serviio (0.6.1) it sometimes happens that you come across an online feed that Serviio cannot process, with the result that you don't get any links in your mediaplayer. In other cases you do get links, but with titles that are meaningless. RSS feeds are fairly simple XML files that can be edited with a simple text editor like Notepad ​[[http://​www.buletintupperware.com/​|promo harga diskon]]. So, one solution would be to edit the RSS file and then use the edited file as a local file. The current version of Serviio will not accept a local RSS file, but it is expected that an upcoming version with playlist support will make that possible.+With the current version of Serviio (0.6.1) it sometimes happens that you come across an online feed that Serviio cannot process, with the result that you don't get any links in your mediaplayer.

 In the meantime it is possible to use your own edited RSS file if you upload it to the web. If you have your own website it is easy, but otherwise you can use public online storage. A list of free online storage sites can be found at http://​freedrive.awardspace.com/​storage.htm. You just have to make sure that the storage site will give you a direct link to each file that you upload. An easy one to use is MediaFire (http://​www.mediafire.com),​ where you can upload a file without having to register. Once uploaded you go to the download page, rightclick on the download button and copy the link. That will be the URL you should use in Serviio. In the meantime it is possible to use your own edited RSS file if you upload it to the web.

-As a first example we will use a feed that has a simple problem, which nevertheless prevents its contents from being shown in Serviio. The feed is http://​vpodcast.dr.dk/​feeds/​kontantrss.xml. It has slashes (/) in the titles which the current version of Serviio does not accept. The first thing you do is to drag  the module "Fetch Feed" into the active area [[http://​buletinnews.com/​|berita aksi]] ​and paste the feed URL into it. We now need to go through all the item titles and remove or replace the slashes. To do that we need to use the Loop module. So, we drag that in and connect it to the feed and to the Pipe Output. Inside of the Loop module we place a String Replace module which we set up to replace every / with a -. The pipe now looks like this:+As a first example we will use a feed that has a simple problem, which nevertheless prevents its contents from being shown in Serviio.

 These were some simple examples. Yahoo Pipes can do a lot more. If you click on each module you will get a description at the bottom of the side panel, with a link to an example and to "Learn more about this module"​. You can also create your own feeds from scratch by using the "RSS Item Builder"​ in the "​Sources"​ group of modules. These were some simple examples. Yahoo Pipes can do a lot more.

-At the bottom of the screen you will find a Debugger. You can select "Pipe Output"​ to see the results of your current pipe build. If you don't see any output there is a problem with your construction. If you try to modify the tags <​guid>​ or <​pubDate>​ you will see the results in the Debugger as you would expect, but when you run the [[http://​www.tabloidharga.com/​|berita harga]] ​pipe the tags will be unchanged. If you ever need to modify those tags, it takes a special trick which you can find described in this example: http://​pipes.yahoo.com/​pipes/​pipe.edit?​_id=Iq4alPIO3RGgAbcrw5tC8g.+At the bottom of the screen you will find a Debugger.
