Selecting Data From XML Tags in PHP

I need to grab the data from the “enclosure” tag from the following feed:

https://queryfeed.net/twitter?q=%40CabosNews&title-type=user-name-both&geocode=

In the example, you can modify the “enclosure” field to any of the fields you need help grabbing.  This is using the simplexml_load_string command.

$url = 'https://queryfeed.net/twitter?q=%40CabosNews&title-type=user-name-both&geocode=';
$xml = file_get_contents($url);
$obj = simplexml_load_string($xml);

foreach ($obj->channel->item as $item)
{
    echo PHP_EOL . (string)$item->enclosure['url'];
}

This will give you an output on your page of:
