Duplicates in the new youtube-feeds

Thanks for the cure, for a start!
After having “converted” all my
youtube-feeds using your method (deleting the old feed first, subcribing again using your method), I - maybe because of having fiddled around with user Tazio’s method at first, who knows - experience those weird duplicates in all of my feeds, just as an example have a look at this:

Interestingly it seems as if there were “two feeds in one”, i. e. “Pat Condell” and “patcondell”, but I am absolutely sure I had wiped the old feed first before subscribing to the new one. Hmm.


Don’t give me any credit, I’m just an agitator.  DMack and others did the heavy lifting!  I’m guessing that you are subscribed to two separate feeds that are returning the same items.

Argh, I knew that, but forgot about it as I wrote this. Stupid me, sorry, DMack!
Yes, Tazio, that was my first guess, too. But I  deleted every youtube-feed, logged off newsblur, logged in, subscribed again (Samuel’s version). And it looks like the two feeds (DMack-version, Samuel-version) have been mixed up in a way I don’t understand.
Maybe Samuel has an idea what’s going on.

Got a URL?


I’m seeing this same behavior in several of my YouTube feeds as well.  I had originally converted them to DMack’s solution and I’ve been slowly converting them back to the new integrated solution (save for a few people who don’t have a user name that can’t subscribe to).  By deleting the DMack feed from my account and re-adding it by direct YouTube URL.

Some of the places I’m seeing it (URL’s from my site settings not necessarily what I added it with):

Adafruit’s YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpOlOeQjj7EsVnDh3zuCgsA
EEVBlog: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC2DjFE7Xf11URZqWBigcVOQ
/Drive: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5rBpVgv83gYPZ593XwQUsA

And a few others.

So I don’t see any dupes. Here are the two EEVblog feeds: http://www.newsblur.com/site/5939784/eevblog and http://www.newsblur.com/site/1646056/eevblogs-youtube-videos

Still don’t understand why one feed can behave as if two were mixed up. Ultimately I’ve subscribed to just one feed, and there are (as you can see) - no duplicates (cause they are not identical) but two  v e r y  similar stories.

/Drive just published a new video today around 11:30 EDT, and I see it twice


The first has a user of “/DRIVE”, the second a user of “drive”.  It looks like to me one is from the old (retiring) YouTube RSS feeds and the other is from the new retrieval method.

Yes, as in my example “Pat Condell” and “patcondell”.

Maybe this helps, one feed’s two nearly identical stories with different “training-tags”:

Don’t know how and why, but it does - work! Thank you very much.
Would like to know what Samuel thinks of the how and why (-:

Here’s what I did to fix this:

In site settings, I changed the website address from http://youtube…. to https://youtube…. and then “Fetch from feed website”

This cleared up the duplicates and they didn’t reappear when I insta-fetched stories. I’m using the latest version of Chrome on OS X.

Is there a solution for YouTube feeds without a user, and just a channel? The two YouTube channels causing me fits are Alton Brown’s channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfDNi1aEljAQ17mUrfUjkvg) and Numberphile 2 (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyp1gCHZJU_fGWFf2rtMkCg

With these two channels, I’m forced to use the RSS feeds generated via http://morning-retreat-1911.herokuapp.com/
