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:
<title>NÃ¥r vandet gÃ¥r under valgkampen</title>

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.
