Spreaker Shortcode

Description

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).
  • hide-likes: when true the likes button is not displayed in the player (defaults to false)

Great plugin great support response

Over a year ago I began using the spreaker platform for podcasting. The service itself is great, the folks were responsive and helpful. I came to see spreaker as the WordPress of podcasting. However integrating in my existing WordPress site was cumbersome and time consuming. So I suggested plugin to Spreaker support. Now I don’t know if they were responding to my suggestion but a few month later the spreaker short plugin appeared. It works phenomenally well. The process of embedding podcasts that took multiple steps before is now just a couple steps. Now visitors to our site visit our site to listen to our podcasts driving traffic there. Listeners are presented with an attractive and highly functional player for individual podcasts as well as podcast playlists. If you are looking for a great podcast platform and an excellent plugin to share your podcasts on your site look no further than this plugin in conjunction with the spreaker service. FIVE STARS!
