Current state: I'm parsing XML feeds into the front end and/or the back end (Admin UI), but not into the DB. Inside those feeds i place mp3- and video content, currently only as plain text (no link, no player).
Future goal: I want to change the above behavior so visitors can watch/listen to video/audio content.
What I'm searching for: builtin (wp core) function(s) that load a (wp core) player for audio and/or video files in the feed. What I'm not searching for: A regular expression/regex to replace the current text (link).
The solution should be independent from any plugins, themes or any other third party code.
I hope there's someone over here who has any sort of experience with this.
Edit: Shortly ma question, maybe you understand my problem easier
Is there a way to see \'enclosures\' from RSS feeds? I would like to use the images as thumbnails and view a player for video and audio enclosures. Here is an example feed item with enclosure...
