Subscribe to YouTube Channel in NetNewsWire

I don’t have a Google account, which normally doesn’t bother me except when I find a really great YouTube channel I’d like to keep an eye on. Luckily, YouTube still publishes an RSS feed on the channels, but finding it is always a pain, so I cobbled together this quick Keyboard Maestro macro.

I’m sure there’s more elegant ways to do this, but this is just what I threw together with a half-seconds thought and figured it might be useful for someone else wanting to do the same thing.

Eh, also just noticed tjluoma’s thread about a shell script to do something similar: Shell Script to get YouTube RSS feed for any channel but here you go anyway.
