OPDS and Skydrive
I've created a catalogue in Skydrive, but should I be able to type the URL for the skydrive folder in the browser and get the catalogue? Or do I have to link skydrive to a PC and access it that way?
I'm trying to link an ebook reader (Freda) on Win8 phone and I can't seem to use the catalogue I've created... And typing the URL in the browser just brings up Skydrive... Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

In my checking I found that SkyDrive seems to be incompatible with using a browser. The problem is that you need a single URL that allows all files to be addressed in an OPDS catalog, while SkyDrive wants to give each file and/or folder a unique URL.
It is always possible that there is something I have missed in SkyDrive that would allow such a catalog - if so I would like to know what it is.

When you share or login and view a file, for example, the catalog index, it will be dropboxusercontent.com/get/random/folder/linkage/root_of_shared_folder/names_of_files_and_folders allowing the catalog to work, since in that view mode, it is exactly like a folder uploaded to a server viewable AS A FOLDER!
You could also get a server host and upload to there, but probably don't want to bother... You're stuck with dropbox until/unless some other cloud solution offers the same feature.
