I have a cisco Digital media Manager server here at work that I've been working on for a while now. What it does is allow me to pump out content to individual boxes called digital media players. They will be hooked up to tv's through out the company and alow me to manage what get's played where and when. It's all a form of digital signage. Anyway the players will do RSS feeds. I want to evnetually be able to have a little rss feed of our company's stock and what it's doing. Also along with that I'd like to do the same with some of our competitors. I'm having trouble finding where i can get the rss feeds though. Do you know of a place to get free RSS feeds by any chance?

Sounds like this is what you're looking for: Custom NASDAQ RSS Feeds. (Generate your own stocks feeds). There's a tab for news items about whatever stock symbols you enter, and a tab for stock quote for whatever stock symbols you enter. Assuming like most RSS reading / aggregating software, that you can add multiple RSS feeds, you could just enter your own companies' stock symbol into one stock quotes RSS feed, and maybe your own companies' symbol into a stock news feed, and then later when you decide to add competitors add their symbols to their own stock news / stock quotes feed, then mix and match which ones get pumped out through the media server however you wish.

Well maybe I don't understand how rss feeds should work. I want these to scroll along the top or bottom of the screen. I can add generate them and add them in from that site. But all that scrolls on the screen is the main Link text. I don't get all the stocks or anything. If I paste the code genrated from the site into a browser it takes me to a page that shows it all. I guess I thought it would be like a stock ticker more or less.

Re: Where can I get RSS feeds for company Stocks?

Without seeing the actual screen results and/or the software settings it's hard to tell, but I'm figuring what you're seeing and able to do is all based on the way they wrote the RSS reading software for your Media Server. It may be designed to just show the RSS Link text. RSS feeds have a link/text and a short summary of the link (generally), along with some other properties for each one, like timestamps. You can test the RSS feeds in Google Reader to see exactly what the feeds show. When you just view the RSS raw feed in a browser you'll just see the raw XML unless your browser is already set to ask which RSS reader to use.

You may not be able to do scrolling of the stocks in a usual stock ticker effect unless that particular media server's software was written to be able to do it that way. I'm guessing that they didn't create the media server specifically for stocks / companies to show stocks, so you may not be able to.

Re: Where can I get RSS feeds for company Stocks?

The powers that be also want me to be able to pump in to the VP's there freerealtime.com accounts through this media server to their offices. I can get it to go to http://www.freerealtime.com fine. Problem is getting it to auto login to their accounts. Doesn't seem that you can just do a http://username:[email protected] like you would an ftp url. Do you know of any other way to get this pulled off?

Would it be possible to write something in an xml page that would redirect to the login page and input the user information for me?

Re: Where can I get RSS feeds for company Stocks?

That's much trickier. For starters, XML can be thought of basically as a database in flat text form, so you can't do coding type redirects and form filling with it; you'd need to just have the info in the XML file (like their login credentials and the URL to go to) and then something like PHP to read from it and do the actual page retrieval, form filling, etc.

Also, since it involves their logins / passwords, having them in open text probably isn't a good idea unless they didn't care, because anyone would be able to go to the XML page and view their logins / passwords unless you encrypt the passwords before they're saved to the XML file, and then decrypt it again just before form filling, which is all more PHP work.

If you already know their login credentials the easiest way would be to hard code them into the PHP script so outsiders can't see them easily, but then you'll have to write a handler to somehow tell which VP's account to use the credentials for, and if they ever change them you'd have to manually edit the PHP script with the new credentials.

That's all working on the assumption that a redirect would work at all, but most RSS readers are "lazy", in the sense they won't follow redirects; the exact URL they are given they expect the RSS XML format to be right there for them. Also, I haven't created an account on that site so I'm not sure what you see the second you fill your login and password and hit the login button, if it's not showing raw RSS anyway, and you just get to some user profile page or something, then the RSS feed reader of your media server wouldn't show any sort of stock ticker quotes anyway, since it's just an RSS reader / aggregator.

Any chance once you login they have their custom RSS feed links already available to use? That'd be the easiest and seems like something a site like that should have available to their users.
