3FL RSS feeds updated to only show available content

Sometime back, I wrote a useful little PHP script that provides RSS feeds that use 3FL mirrored content for Tekzilla and Diggnation so that people in Western Australia using certain ISPs can download those content via their unmetered or WAIX quota.

Initially I was simply retrieving the original RSS feeds and updating the URLs in the original feeds to the 3FL ones, unfortunately 3FL takes quite a while to actually download the podcasts which meant often the latest podcast appears in the feed but the download link was broken.

I have since updated the scripts to only returns feed items that 3FL are already mirrored by checking if its already available on 3FL before returning the item in the xml feed.

Diggnation and Tekzilla RSS feeds WAIX mirror

Diggnation and Tekzilla RSS feeds WAIX mirror

I setup up a couple of customized RSS feeds for Diggnation and Tekzilla that replaced the revision3 URL with 3fl.net.au’s URL for the video download source URLs. 3FL is on WAIX so Western Australians connecting via ISPs with WAIX quota will be able to enjoy Veronica Belmont and Diggnation in free traffic.

The 3FL feed URLs are as follows

  1. http://feeds.feedburner.com/DiggnationOn3FL
  2. http://feeds.feedburner.com/TekzillaOn3FL

If you find that the files are not available via the feed, its because 3FL has yet to mirror the file and there’s nothing much I can do until they download the file.

Essentially, they are the same HD versions you find on 3FL’s download page.
Hope someone else finds this just as useful and many thanks to 3FL for mirroring the files and saving me lots of download quota!

P3P fix for Internet Explorer to access cross domain cookie in iframe

Technical, PHP, 197 words  

I had an issue whereby my iframe was loading a webpage from a different domain. Problem is the webpage in the iframe was required to load cookies from its own domain. This works in Firefox and most other browsers except Internet Explorer because its default setting prevents the loading of 3rd party. Google says that all you need to do to get this working is setup a P3P Cookie Privacy policy according to P3P Specifications. Most results also say that all you need is to setup the P3P policy in the header. Such as in VB


HttpContext.Current.Response.AddHeader("P3P", "CP=""CAO PSA OUR""")



<?php header('P3P: CP="CAO PSA OUR"'); ?>
