This is a HOW-TO on creating your own RSS Feed that you can use on Kodi.


This tutorial might work with Kodi only. Some RSS Feed readers might not recognize the RSS we will make.

Please keep in mind that this is a simple and easy way of doing it. I know it might not be the right way but it works.

1 Creating the XML file

The only type of RSS Feed that Kodi reads are .xml files

Start by creating a normal text file and rename it to RSSFeed.xml


Your first three lines should look like this:

<rss version="2.0">
 <channel>
  <title></title>

Between <title></title> you're suppose to add your RSS Feed's name. Which will be in blue in Kodi.


After that you can start adding "items" which is basically what will be shown when the text starts moving.

<item>
   <title></title>
  </item>

Again between <title></title> you should put in the text that you want to be shown.

Your XML file HAS to contain three or more "items". If not Kodi will not read your RSS Feed.


Finish the code by closing it.

</channel>
</rss>

2 Example

Below is an example of what your XML file should look like.

<rss version="2.0">
 <channel>
  <title>My RSS Feed</title>
  
  <item>
   <title>Hello everyone!</title>
  </item>
  
  <item>
   <title>Updates are coming soon. Stay tuned!</title>
  </item>
  
  <item>
   <title>Enjoy your day.</title>
  </item>
  
 </channel>
</rss>

You can have many more "items" but make sure to have at lease three of them.

3 Uploading your file

The final step is to upload your .xml file to a webhost. It can be any host but make sure your file's name has the extention .xml at the end of it's name.

Copy the link of you file and insert it into Kodi.
