Kodi and Video RSS feeds

I'd like to discuss the use and possibilities of Video RSS feeds with Kodi.

RSS feeds provide a simple way to browse dynamically changing video content. I use it a lot on other devices. German public media content platforms (Mediatheken) can be browsed on mediathekviewweb.de/ and every query can be converted to a stable Video RSS feed. I use it on Android (using Antennapod) to subscribe to shows and to download them for offline viewing. There is no need to install custom (no-free) media apps for all public television channels.

Similarly, there are many add-ons for in Kodi but links to shows are not stable, and they scrapers often break. Therefore, I have to SSH into Kodi and adjust configurations files to add my RSS feeds to use as favorites.
  1. Does anyone use Video RSS feeds in a similar way?
  2. Has anyone found a simpler way to add RSS feeds to Kodi?
The open source companion app to mediathekview for Android is called Zapp. From there, I can easily share video URLs to Kodi using Kore, kind of a remote control. I'd love to share the RSS feed URL instead to add them to Kodi.

I'm excited to hear your ideas!
