YouTube Feed

I’m trying to bring in a YouTube playlist that is updated once a week. The RSS feed works and creates the post, but the video isn’t embedded in.

I can use the standard embed code
<iframe width=”560″ height=”315″ src=”” frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen></iframe>
But I need to replace XXXXXXX with the uniqiue video ID. This date comes in via [original-url] but is in the format

Is there a way in the post settings I can get the video string from the URL and copy it over to the embed string?


Tag Issue: latest versions of plugin are not correctly tagged

The latest versions of your plugin are not correctly tagged with their version number within SVN.

I rely on these version tags in order to update my platform.

I can see the correct tag for version 1.0.33 but since that release, I am no longer seeing the correct version tags.

Please can you fix this so we can update the plugin?
