You can also simply click "Add Feed" under the RSS mode and enter the URL of the RSS feed.

Once a feed has been added, Song Mixer will connect to that web site, download the most recent document, and search its contents for usable media links.  Links will be added to the list.  This process may take a while depending on your internet connecton speed, as well as the speed of the web site.

You can have as many feeds on a list as you want.  The feeds list file Song Mixer saves contains references to all of the RSS feeds and URLs that have been added.

To keep loading time down, if you have a lot of feeds, you may want to organize your feeds into seperate files.  Perhaps you could have different files for different types of feeds.
