    Newbie here trying to load an rss feed thru xml in Flash AS 2.0

    mentlity Level 1

      I have never looked into RSS feeds before, I now have someone that wants  Yahoo rss newsfeed  embedded in his main.fla. I have an AS 2.0 rss newsreader he sent to me, knowing nothing about RSS I started to look around and eventually got to a point where I went to a Yahoo RSS feed and copied the source page and dropped it in the xml file that came with the feedreader. When saved, published and uploaded to the server the file displays the feed from yahoo fine, but it never update the stories. I would think this has to do with the xml as it is embedded in the page so it can't change so my question is how do I get an rss feed converted to xml to update???

       

      I gotta be missing something here, I hope this isn't too dumb of a question.
