Video sitemap not finding our videos
« on: September 02, 2011, 12:52:05 AM »
I just installed and ran XML Sitemap, including video sitemap.  When I look at the video result ([external links are visible to admins only]), it's finding only YouTube videos we have embedded on our site.  It is not finding our own streaming videos in our video center - [external links are visible to admins only]

How do we get all of our videos crawled and mapped?

We're running Drupal 6 on Windows Server 2008/IIS 7

Hello,

Note that only videos from this sources can be detected by sitemap generator bot:
http://www.xml-sitemaps.com/video-sitemap.html
YouTube, Google Video, Vimeo, Dailymotion, MTV

(since they provide API that allow to get video details like play duration/thumbnail etc)

Well, that's truly disappointing.  I need a solution for videos that we stream ourselves.  Very sorry to learn you can't help me.
