I've been working on getting Gallery 2 RSS feeds to work with the Blogger Slideshow and wasn't having any luck. In comparing feeds with flickr and picasa to Gallery, I was able to determine the issue.
One issue is that in Gallery <media:thumbnail> is being set to the HTML link of the original picture instead of the thumbnail image. This was easily fixed.
$ diff modules/rss/classes/RssHelper.class.bak modules/rss/classes/RssHelper.class
Once this was fixed, I still had issues with Blogger. By removing the <media:text> portion of the feed, everything appeared to work fine.
$ diff modules/rss/classes/RssGenerator.class.bak modules/rss/classes/RssGenerator.class
I feel sure someone who knows more about proper RSS format, etc will have a look over this to determine if this is actually a bug or not. After these changes, the feed still appears to work fine in Google Reader and from within Firefox.
