#12645 closed defect (bug) (invalid)

Enclosures not automatically generated for RSS

Enclosure custom field isn't automatically generated and populated when a video is linked to in the post. This issue appear both in 2.9 and 3.0 alfa.

I have tried with both .mp4 and .mov containers.

This results in no enclosure tag being generated for the feeds if the author isn't manually pasting the URI to the video file into the custom fields field.

In the podcasting section of Codex (http://codex.wordpress.org/Podcasting) it's clearly stated that "Wordpress automatically Includes a link to the file in your RSS/Atom feed" at point 4 in the list at top.

That Codex page is massively out of date. Oddly enough it talks of functionality in 1.5 that I don't think ever existed.

I'm going to close this as invalid due to the fact the ticket is based on misleading information from Codex. Any volunteers to clean up that Codex article?
