Facebook Share Preview


The Facebook Share Preview Plugin adds the required meta-data to an audio post so Facebook can embed your audio directly onto their site.

Please rate this plugin if you download it, or leave a message in the forums if you have any questions. I want to make this plugin better and easier to use, but I need your feedback.


Things to Note

  • This plugin assumes that an enclosure is being used to describe the audio.
  • Plugins such as, microAudio, podPress, and other podcasting plugins should do this.
