    For weeks i sat on the following problem:

    On an autoblog i use YAAB since yaab is a very good autoblogger plugin, it is the only one which can read RSS feeds with video and EMBED those to a wordpress blog.

    Now i was testing on my blog and noticed that at certain times Videos were just NOT embeded..it fetched the description from youtube but did not embed the video in the post itself.

    I found out what the reason is: TWITTER POSTER

    My chain is Hotfeed ---> Yaab ---> Blog ---> Twitter (via twitter poster)

    But since twitter poster tweets to my twitter each time it sees a new post it like "stalls" wordpress and the tweeting causes the videos not being fetched properly!!!

    I need a solution which posts to twitter, BUT NOT AT THE SAME TIME as the blog is auto-posting content!! <-- screws up the timing.

    Anyone have an idea?

    hey, maybe try with feedwordpress, its another autoblogger, and i tried it shortly and it also worked well with hotfeed.. maybe the conflict will disappear..

    i use FWP, but i dont like the fact that it only posts THUMBS. Yaab would be 1000 nicer, but it has the problem with twitter poster. Maybe i should look over the code of twitter poster, i checked "bird feeder" and it does the same thing: Vids not appearing with yaab.

    What about using twitterfeed.com? post your rss feed on twitterfeed, and it'll fetch your rss content to your twitter account, you don't need any plugin to do this...

    I'll sell you my private self designed autoblogger for 10.00, it isnt a plugin, it runs through a php file and cron, but its designed for word press and easy setup.

    I run http://www.ohzeldacostumes.com/blog with it right now among some others.

    you would be my first sale. lol
