FeedWordPress + embedded video (9 posts)

    I use FeedWordPress to operate a blog portal that syndicates a few of the blogs from a WPMU installation and I'd like to be able to include embedded video (youtube, quicktime, etc) in the posts that are syndicated.

    I'm using Anarchy Media Player to embed media in posts, which work fine in their original context. However, syndicated feeds do not “grab” the media content. Instead, the syndicated posts have empty code tags.

    The real post would look something more like this:

    <code><div id="fo_targ_iCyv3MeoYHI129013521" class="flashmovie"></div>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    	// <![CDATA[var so_129013521 = new SWFObject("http://www.youtube.com/v/iCyv3MeoYHI","fm_iCyv3MeoYHI","425","350","6","","","","","");
    so_129013521.addParam("wmode", "transparent");
    so_129013521.write("fo_targ_iCyv3MeoYHI129013521");
    	// ]]>
    </script></code>

    I know that other people have had problems getting FeedWordPress to work with embedded media, so I'm open to suggestions that involve other syndication or embedded media plugins.

    For anyone that might have suggestions, here’s a link to my test site: http://sophia.smith.edu/betablog/

    I know exactly how to do this, the problem is... if some internet marketer scum got a hold of how to do this they'd start selling it as "Ultimate YouTube Video Site Generator"

    Anyone with helpful feedback -- or an example of a site that they've gotten working with these features?

    @eswhite - Are you sure your trouble is with FeedWordPress and not the kses.php of WPMU? See this thread : http://mu.wordpress.org/forums/topic.php?id=9270

    I have my own troubles with FeedWordPress showing content from particular feeds (Atom feeds from Google Reader and Twitter, but also RSS feeds from Wordpress.com) but with those feeds it functions with (such as other WPMU feeds) it fetches embedded stuff perfectly - if kses.php allows it to.

    This thread is 5 months old. Likely he found a solution.

    One never knows :-)

    It's so little trouble for me answering something I'm in the process myself of figuring out. I have nothing to lose to do it. I regularly stumble on posts and problems which are posted years back, but for which I can't find answers - or none has been posted. Often I only see the posting date after replying. As far as I see it, it's about directing the attention to where solutions can be found - even if @eswhite doesn't care. Someone else may.

    BTW - FeedWordPress DO work great with Google Reader if one applies the Magpie RSS files supplied by the developer, see this : http://projects.radgeek.com/2008/04/18/compatability-bugs-and-possible-quick-fixes-for-issues-with-feedwordpress-after-upgrading-to-wordpress-25/
