I need to use an RSS Feed in a Digital Signage application (Xibo). But to scroll the feed on right or left I need it to be presented on a single line or only the first line will be displayed.

I've looked at Yahoo Pipes but don't seams to make it, does anyone know a webapp or software i can use to convert the multi-line RSS Feed into one single line?

Use goo.gl to shortner the main RSS url. It'll 301 redirect. – Simon Hayter Feb 25 '13 at 21:27

Reformat the RSS feed using a PHP XML parser such as http://magpierss.sourceforge.net/ you can either use the reformatted RSS feed, or create a string from the feed properties and send it to Xibo

RSS feeds can be styled using XSLT stylesheets. I've never seen one that will reformat one into a single line, but it should be possible to do. Here is an article that tells you how to use XSLT with RSS: http://www.paulwest.co.uk/article.php/styling-rss-news-feeds-with-xslt
