Description Bernhard Scheirle 2016-08-07 06:44:48 UTC
> Media RSS (MRSS) is an RSS extension that adds several enhancements to RSS enclosures, and is used for syndicating multimedia files (audio, video, image) in RSS feeds. [1] [2]

Youtube also uses this extension in it's atom feeds:
Example feed: https://www.youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?channel_id=UCF3I1gf7GcbmAb0mR6vxkZQ

Currently media elements get simply ignored and therefore the above feed only contains empty articles.
It would be nice if the thumbnail and description were visible.

[2] Media RSS specification: http://www.rssboard.org/media-rss

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Subscribe to a feed containing mrss elements
2. View a article of this feed

Actual Results:  
Media content is not visible

Expected Results:  
Media content gets displayed
