JW8. Use php extension in RSS Playlist file

Hello and please sorry about my bad english.
I used JW 6 with rss playlist. The file extension are .php instead of .rss, but JW has always read the file as correct. After the switch to JW 8 it no longer read this file extension and tell me: Not a valid RSS/JSON feed.

If I rename the extension to .rss all works fine, but I have many old playlist and should be great if there is a way to force JW8 to read the file even if the extension is php. It's something I can do?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Matteo,

RSS and JSON are the two file types supported for playlist feeds. There may be a way to use your PHP playlists within the player environment, but that would be an unsupported use case, and most likely Stack Overflow or a similar developer community would be the best place to ask about this.
