Trouble with Youtube feeds

I’m trying to add a feed from a Youtube channel ( and while Newsblur does correctly transform it to the Youtube RSS URL format (, it seems to think that the RSS feed is broken (reports “Broken feed (551)”).  The W3 validator does show some quirks but given that it’s Youtube, I’m thinking that Newsblur probably needs to roll with it.

I saw lots of existing problem reports about Youtube RSS feeds but nothing very recent so I’m creating a new problem report.

By the way, I found that if I add the site to Newsblur (it just shows up as “untitled” and empty), then go to site settings and move the url from the RSS box to the web site box and click “fetch feed from website”, sometimes Newsblur will load the feed successfully.  I don’t know what the difference is.
