    HI.. First of all thank you so much for giving this plugin free. It works amazing but It is not embedding videos and I want to change the image cache path. I can change the cache folder in plugins folder. But I want to change it to other (root) folder. I searched in various forums that we can change cache path by making some code changes, Can you provide me the details on changing it.. When is your next update???

    The plugin uses "simple pie" http://simplepie.org/ to parse the feed. Simple Pie strips out iframes, thus embedded videos. This can be fixed easily, but it requires editing a plugin file.

    The solution per http://affiliatecontentmagic.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/162609-using-wp-o-matic-plugin

    Edit Required for SimplePie Library to Play Videos
    N.B. - You won't be able to edit this via the Plugin --> Editor inside of WordPress, you have to log in via FTP to your site.

    In your favorite FTP client / code editor, go to the folder:

    /wp-content/plugins/wp-o-matic/inc/simplepie

    Inside of that folder, open the file named "simplepie.class.php".

    Search for each appearance of the phrase "iframe" (there should be 3) and DELETE them from the file. (Make sure you don't leave extra commas in there!)

    This code is filtering OUT various types of code from appearing in an RSS feed. By removing "iframe" from it, you're ALLOWING iframed videos to be shown on your site.
