    Hello,

    I installed your plugin and it is working fine, generated a nice XML Video Sitemap

    However when sumbitting the data to Google I get the following Error:

    http://www.myrddin.de/wow/error_video-sitemap.gif

    Line: 14
    Invalid date
    An invalid date was found. Please fix the date or formatting before resubmitting.
    Parent tag: video
    Tag: publication_date
    Value: 2010-08-24T03:50:44+0000
    Problem detected on: Aug 24, 2010

    line 14 looks as follows:

    <video:publication_date>2010-08-24T03:50:44+0000</video:publication_date>

    thanks for looking into it,

    Michael

    The Syntax seems to be perfectly right.

    I removed the publication_date line from the file - it is optional - and google webmasters shows no more errors.

    I redownloaded the plugin, reinstalled, deleted the old xml, let it parse again Video Site Map

    Webmasters instantly shows the same errors again as above.

    I haven't found further infromation to this, as stated above teh syntax looks correct, you can take a look yourself here.

    Webmaster Tools say:

    Line 15: Invalid date - An invalid date was found. Please fix the date or formatting before resubmitting.

    Parent tag: video
    Tag: publication_date
    Value: 2010-08-24T03:50:44+0000
    Problem detected on: Aug 25, 2010

    and on further date lines furhter below.

    Noone has an idea if that is an error caused by the plugin or a display parsing error at google webmasters tools?

    Thanks

    Today Webmaster tools stopped showing errors, even though I did not change anything the past days.
    this resolves the ticket and answer the question from the last post, too. Just a bit sad that even though the Author responded to other threads during the past weeks, he ignored this one.
