Michael Smith Michael Smith

This article provides an overview on how to unlock your Rlaxx profile in Zype and generating MRSS feeds for distributing content to Rlaxx. Before proceeding, please make sure you've contacted Rlaxx about distributing content through their applications, as Rlaxx is a curated playthrough endpoint.

Unlocking your Rlaxx profile

To begin distributing content to Rlaxx from Zype, you must first unlock your Rlaxx profile.

Step 1 - Visit our Feeds page, go to the Feeds Marketplace tab, and locate the Rlaxx endpoint

Step 4 - Select the "Feed Type" 

You can select "HLS" to distribute HLS URLs, or "Original File Uploads" to upload the mezzanine files you uploaded to Zype. Rlaxx will confirm which feed type you need based on how they will be ingesting your content.

Step 3 - Select the source you'd like to generate your MRSS feed from. You can choose playlists, categories, or video sources.

Playlists will include content from any child playlists, if applicable. Once you select your content source, click on the 'Generate Feed' button to create the MRSS feed and get access to the feed's URL.

If you need episodic metadata included in your feed, your videos will need the following metadata added:

  • Episode Number
  • Season Number
  • Series ID

Step 4 (optional) - Add a "Partner ID" or "Channel ID" param

You can optionally add these params to your feed to send this data to Rlaxx via the feed url if requested.

Step 5 - Once you've generated your feed, simply copy the feed URL to clipboard and you're ready to go!

Make sure you double check the feed contents to ensure this reflects the video content you'd like to deliver to Rlaxx. Then please send the feed URL to your account contact at Rlaxx to complete QA and delivery.

Can I customize the feed once generated? 

Yes! You are able to customize the Rlaxx MRSS feeds by adding parameters to the feed URL that is generated in the Zype platform. Here are some example parameters that can be added to the MRSS feed URL along with an explanation of what they do:

 

page= Determines which page of the MRSS feed is being viewed when results have been paginated. If unspecified the default page shown is page 1 Any integer between 1 - unlimited.

 

This feed has a fixed number of 100 items per page.
