MRSS (Media RSS) is a standard XML formatted feed developed by Yahoo! in 2004 and is used on many popular video platforms.

All videos in Studio, including those from My Videos, Top Stories, and Templates, can be pulled from the platform with an MRSS feed.

These feeds allow your team to automate processes and integrate the videos with any DAM or MAM system, or your own custom one.

The MRSS Endpoint

Access Wibbitz MRSS from the following endpoint:

https://int-api.wibbitz.com/feed?format=rss


Authentication

The feed can only be accessed using your Wibbitz username and password.

Use your credentials in a "Basic Auth" method, encoded in Base64.


Feed Structure

Pulling the videos feed will give you an XML file with the list of videos in an account and each video’s respective data.

Here is an example of a single item XML:
