Show HN: HookRSSTube – It's YouTube RSS Except Video Playback Is on HookTube (hookrsstube.com)

Sadly, but it not provide correct timestamps for video uploading date.

Lets test it using VATA TV[0] channel

Here is screenshot[1] from SMTube that use Tonvid.com[2] website parsing, so all video publishing dates shown correctly.

And here is screenshot[3] from RSS Guard that use feed from HookRSSTube[4], as you can see there no correct dates for each video publishing date. So, its impossible sort videos list correctly to publishing date.

When I read feed of any project commits history on Github[5], each entry has own date according commit date created - look on "Created on" column on this screenshot[6] from RSS Guard.

Am I missing something?

Thank you for reporting this! Turns out I was using the wrong tag to indicate publication date.

I think the issue is now fixed in production, caching complexities notwithstanding.

Nice, would be useful for me in combination with "RSS Guard[0] + youtube-dl[1] + mpv[2]", as alternative to "SMTube[3] + youtube-dl + mpv".

I'd just like to thank you for building something like this! As someone who uses Youtube rss feeds and also likes Hooktube, this is something I've been needing for a while.
