Hi,

When google explain about the mobile sitemap (http://www.google.com/support/webmasters/bin/answer.py?answer=34648) there isn't any reference to mobile video sitemaps.

Can I assume from the above page that I should just use the desktop video sitemap rules and just add this scheme at the top:
xmlns:mobile="http://www.google.com/schemas/sitemap-mobile/1.0


And the mobile tag
<mobile:mobile/>
after each
<loc>
tag?

sorry - i didn't read your question carefully enough.

i would try using something like this:

<urlset xmlns="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9"
xmlns:mobile="http://www.google.com/schemas/sitemap-mobile/1.0"
xmlns:video="http://www.google.com/schemas/sitemap-video/1.1">
<url>
<loc>http://www.example.com/videos/some_video_landing_page.html</loc>
<video:video>
<video:...>
...
</video:video>
<mobile:mobile/>
</url>
</urlset>


note that i said "would try" = i haven't actually tried this.

yeah, that was what I thought of trying - combining both schemes.

wondering though what I would like to appear under WMT "sitemap type" - Video or Mobile?

<video:video>
<video:...>
...
</video:video>
<mobile:mobile/>
</url>
</urlset>


if anyone is interested this works and shows as both Video and Mobile under the sitemap type.

Thanks for the help
