Yahoo! Pipes versus Google Feedburner

Early November Google Feedburner started to have issues with feeds coming from Yahoo! Pipes:

Error getting URL: 999 – Unknown

This error message caused a lot of discussions at both Google and Yahoo! forums (e.g., here, here, and here) and others started to blog about it. Someone provided a workaround using a PHP script but this requires a Web server where this script is running.

Therefore, I discovered another workaround which is that one simply can put in between Yahoo! Pipes and Google Feedburner. That is, just take the output feed of Yahoo! Pipes, use it as input to and burn this output using Google Feedburner and your feeds are back online again ....
PS: offers also other features which look very interesting.
PPS: I'm not affiliated with just found it during my search for a workaround to the 999 error issue.
