Future support of JW Player for video sitemap?
« on: June 09, 2011, 12:43:00 PM »
Hi,

I purchased a little bit naive the video sitemap addon and I read before http://www.xml-sitemaps.com/video-sitemap.html that it works with YouTube, Google Video, Vimeo, Dailymotion, MTV.

But I was not aware of the fact that it seems to work only with their original scripts and not, e. g. with JW Player embedding of video files or playlist.xmls.

As JW Player is very successful in the world, you may consider for a future version of Unlimited
Sitemap Generator to recognize video files and playlists integrated in JW Player JavaScript on pages.

What do you think?

Best,
Wolfgang

Hello,

the mentioned sites provide API to retrieve details about the video, including title/description, image thumbnail, play duration etc - those are details required in video sitemap. So, it's not only needed to detect embedded video, but also there must be a way to find out all this information.

Hi Oleg,

This information is mentioned in JW Player playlists.xml. So XML Sitemaps Unlimited Sitemap Generator could detect JW Player playlists in pages, read them and add those clips to video sitemap.

Would be awesome to get this feature some day. Would pay much more than US-$ 5 for it. :)

Best,
Wolfgang

That sounds like a good addition for the next version of sitemap generator. Can you please point me to an example xml playlist and link to a page that uses it?
