Embed RSS feed into a .XML file?

So I have a fairly complex setup that runs a .swf to display images on a website. It pulls directly from local .jpg files through a .xml file. I want it to pull from an RSS feed I created THROUGH the .xml file. (it must go through the .xml for the .swf to work). Here's the code the .xml uses to pull from the local folder:

?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?%26gt;


%26lt;!-- Place your photos here --%26gt;

%26lt;photo desc="Picture is from stock.xchng" url="_pics/1.jpg" /%26gt;

%26lt;photo desc="Picture is from stock.xchng" url="_pics/2.jpg" /%26gt;


I just want it to embed my .rss into this file so the .swf will look at the .xml and it will point to my feed.

You'll need the rss tag and it's required sub-markup tags.

%26lt;?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?%26gt;

%26lt;rss version="2.0"%26gt;


%26lt;title%26gt;Your Title of the Feed%26lt;/title%26gt;

%26lt;description%26gt;Feed Description%26lt;/description%26gt;




%26lt;title%26gt;Item 1 Name%26lt;/title%26gt;

%26lt;description%26gt;Brief item description%26lt;/description%26gt;

%26lt;pubDate%26gt;Tue, 06 Nov 2007 09:06:53 EST%26lt;/pubDate%26gt;

%26lt;guid isPermaLink="true"%26gt;a unique id%26lt;/guid%26gt;

%26lt;link%26gt;http://photo url%26lt;/link%26gt;


%26lt;item%26gt;...repeat for next picture...%26lt;/item%26gt;



You can also add yahoo media rss tags for more media options.
