Youtube feedwordpress embed customization plugin

  • Charbax


    I would like to automatically embed Youtube videos from users/tags/searchs/playlists RSS feeds that Youtube generates that is described here: http://www.youtube.com/rssls

    So I’m using this Automatic RSS Feed wordpress poster plugin called: http://projects.radgeek.com/feedwordpress

    I was also looking at AutoFeed and WP-o-Matic as possible plugins for this, although WP-o-Matic didn’t work on my WP 2.3 install.

    The typical Youtube RSS feed looks like this: http://www.youtube.com/rss/user/%5Byoutubeusername%5D/videos.rss

    Here is the website where I am testing this out with currently four different feeds:


    Youtube RSS includes just a link back to each videos on Youtube, I would prefer if the output was a customizable Youtube embed.

    This is the standard Item youtube RSS output from this example Youtube RSS output:

    I would like it to somehow output the standard Youtube embed code instead, and not output the useless stuff such as “Author:”, “Keywords:” and “Added:”.

    So I was thinking maybe this could be done using Yahoo Pipes, so I have tried to check Yahoo Pipes out, to see if that could somehow filter the info in the way that I want it and output it in a good way that looks cool in WordPress when pulled in using the feedwordpress plugin.

    If anyone could suggest how this should be done, or if anyone thinks this would be a good idea for a plugin, such as a “WordPress Youtube Channel generator plugin” or if anyone can help make this with Yahoo Pipes, then I would appreciate.

  • did you get the answer for this? i also need this and any help would be appreciated!

    I would like to see a solution for this as well.

    My idea is to take the URL from this <link>http://youtube.com/?v=WnfN-l6eSUs</link>
    and use the string WnfN-l6eSUs with the wordpress video plugin as [youtube WnfN-l6eSUs]. That will display as a video. WordPress video plugin can be found at http://www.daburna.de/blog/2006/12/13/wordpress-video-plugin/
    So someone has to figure out how to extract that key from the url and write it as a format accepted by the wordpress video plugin.

    I too have been looking at exactly this. I use FeedWordpress also (WP-O-Matic is way too glitchy). I know how it could be done, fairly easily, in a “single.php” template – but….

    For some reason, the template tags included with Feedwordpress are not working on my 2.5.1 blog. I left a comment at Rad Geek’s site, but it’s still in “pending” mode. Anyone else having this issue?

    I want to know to do that too…who can have a idea how to figure out it?
