Parsing an iTunes RSS Feed

So how do you parse an iTunes RSS Feed? It’s actually quite easy, once you know how to do it. I used Magpie RSS to parse my feed and it wasn’t as easy as the directions said. It said to upload four files and it’d work. Nope. You also need the code for your index page. Duh. And you have to figure out where to put the RSS feed URL. Yes, for people that know something about RSS feeds this may be common knowledge, but this script wasn’t documented will for beginners. I did get it to work and it works beautifully! There are so many things I want to do with parsing RSS feeds now. For now though you can go download mp3s at my iTunes starter site.
