Quick Tips: Read RSS feeds in Nero 8The new Nero 8 adds an RSS reader to the main interface. CNET editor Molly Wood teaches you how to enter your feeds.
>> You know Nero the mega multi media software suite that we all know and love? Well it's on version 8 and it's got a major face lift. Now you'll notice in its new sleek look, among other features you'll see a new RSS reader. I'm Molly Wood and in this quick tip I'm gonna show you how to program your own RSS feeds into this space so you can keep up with the headlines while you're burning your CD's, backing up your data disks, and sharing your videos on You Tube. First you want to go into this file menu, now that's that round button there near the logo. Click options and then click news feed. Now if you want to subscribe to Nero's default feed keep this box checked. If you do that you'll see messages from Nero on new features and tips it's up to you. But you can get headlines from any RSS feed you want by clicking subscribe. Now at this point you're gonna have to add the feeds XML URL. Now what you just heard was add the blah blah blah blah blah, what I mean is the web address that ends in dot XML that's used to deliver headlines to any RSS reader. Now most sites indicate their headlines through RSS have a list of feeds that you can click on and then you just to have to copy the URL from your browser's address field and paste it into the subscribe field. Of course this is a little bit time intensive but when you paste it into the box back here in Nero and click OK you'll start getting all those headlines that you just have to have. You can also set the speed at which the headlines cycle. There's a one minute interval, that's the fastest or five minutes which is the longest. You click the feed to pull up the full title and click the more link to open the story in your default browser. And there you go, RSS links customized for your newshound take. [ music ]
