Need Help Displaying RSS Feeds

Postby CNIDog » Tue Nov 15, 2011 5:07 am

I am an Android novice and have acquired some source code for a relatively simple application that simply displays the RSS feed from a website. I want to modify the code to display feeds from another site, but it seems no matter what feed URL I supply - except the original - the code fails running the XMLReader.parse() command. I have tried several RSS feeds that I know are well-formed, so the error would appear to be something else.

Debugging indicates that the code fails in the android.jar file. I don't have the source for it, so I have difficulty stepping through to see what's killing it. I'm baffled as to what is causing the failure. The application simply displays "An error has occurred. Please check your internet connection and retry later". The error description is null when I debug it. Perhaps I need to know the precise XML format and change my code to reflect that structure? Any help would be appreciated.

I will want to modify the code to also play a podcast (included in the feed).
