The Developer Resources and Utilities page now offers a set of batch files that can generate Media RSS (MRSS) manifest files (.xml) from a folder containing images or videos. Once an MRSS manifest file is generated, you can upload it, along with the associated image or video files, to an accessible web folder to create your own MRSS feed.
If you don't have your own server, you can use a Dropbox account to host your new MRSS feed.
