Again.

For example Gears Tactics quicklook and the Mario Kart house party charity stream are missing from all relevant feeds, to name a few from the latest videos. I don't know if others are missing since I just noticed it and only knew about Gears Tactics QL from Jeff's twitter.

I follow the channel on YouTube so I knew about those two streams, but Premium stuff like the latest Mass Alex missed the feed, so I had no idea that dropped. The first few weeks of the lockdown seemed to go pretty smoothly with regards to the RSS, but things are breaking again. I also noticed that the new Giant Devcast stream didn't hit that feed, but that sounds like it might be another issue with archiving it.

This appears to still be happening.

None of the podcasts (Bombcast, Beastcast, Hotspot) appear in any of the RSS feeds I use including the premium video feed (https://www.giantbomb.com/videos/feed/mobile/?api_key=REDACTED) or the Video Feed (https://www.giantbomb.com/feeds/video/).

It looks like they do appear in the Site Mashup (https://www.giantbomb.com/feeds/mashup/) but that feed barely holds even 2 days of content at this point with its 15 <item/> limit. Maybe that feed would be a reasonable alternative if it retained more items.

Many of the RSS Feeds are missing new videos. On the ones I subscribe to, I'm missing about 30% of all the content that ends up being posted to the single mashup feed.

For example, I know there haven't been too many QL's over the past few months, but the QL RSS Feed was last updated on April 11th (Freespace 2). I'm guessing it's an issue with staff not tagging videos correctly when uploaded, so the RSS feeds are failing to populate. Also, on a side note the 'Features' RSS feed is doing a lot of heavy lifting these days, where things that could easily be classed as Old Games etc are bundled in under it (under the Lockdown 2020 umbrella).
