1) Script Title: RSS Display Boxes

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex18/rssdisplaybox/index.htm

3) Describe problem: I would like for any videos I've posted on my blog on Tumblr, which I am displaying on this page (http://www.motherloader.net/home3-1.html) via the above script, to show up the same on the page they are being displayed on. Right now the videos are not even coming up, let alone displaying incorrectly. I need the same thing to happen with any mp3s I post that are played via flash objects. What adjustments would I need to make to the dynamic script to make my blog show up exactly the same as it does on tumblr?

Hi I think you need to digg into the simplepie documentation. Probably you have to use native_embed() or embed() to get the mediafiles showing up. Here is a link to the native embed doc (http://simplepie.org/wiki/reference/simplepie_enclosure/native_embed?s[]=video). I know this is not going to solve the problem easily, but it could be a start. I have had the video embed working on a site using this newsblock (http://simplepie.org/wiki/tutorial/how_to_replicate_popurls) which also uses simplepie. Maybe taking a look at the code could help you. Finally you can take a look or ask at the simplepie support forum (http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/simplepie-support/). That's unless somebody else here has an easy fix for the problem
