Spreaker Shortcode


The Spreaker shortcode plugin is an easy way to embed Spreaker audio player into your WordPress blog. It works for any Spreaker episode, show, or user. Once you install this plugin, it will work on all of your blog posts.

A simple example:

[spreaker type=player resource="episode_id=3331356"]

More Options

Spreaker shortcode requires the resource play. It can be only of the following:

  • resource="episode_id=X": id of the episode to embed.
  • resource="show_id=X": id of the show, whose latest episode should be displayed.
  • resource="user_id=X": id of the user, whose latest episode should be displayed.

The plugin also supports the following optional parameters:

  • width: player’s width – can be in % or px (ie. 100% or 400px).
  • height: player’s height – can be in % or px (ie. 100% or 400px).
  • theme: player’s UI theme. Supported themes are: light (default) and dark.
  • cover: HTTPS url of an image to display as player’s background.
  • playlist: configures how the playlist should be built. It can be playlist="false" to disable the playlist, playlist="user" to display all user’s episodes in the playlist or playlist="show" to display all show’s episodes in the playlist. The default behavious depends on resource.
  • playlist-continuous: enables or disables the playlist continuous playback. When true it continuously plays all episodes in the playlist until the end.
  • playlist-loop: enables or disables loop playlist playback when continuous playback is enabled. When true and playlist continuous playback is enabled as well, it will loop the playlist continuously (defaults to false).
  • playlist-autoupdate: enables or disables the playlist autoupdate, when a new episode is published. This feature is enabled by default.
  • autoplay: enables or disables the autoplay. When true it automatically starts playing when the player loads. Autoplay doesn’t work on most mobile browsers. Defaults to false.
  • live-autoplay: when true and a new LIVE is onair, the player will start playing automatically, no matter if autoplay is disabled or the player is already playing another episode (defaults to false).
  • chapters-image: enables or disables the display of chapters images in the player (defaults to true).
