[resolved] Embed video in podcast episode (5 posts)

    Thanks for the fantastic plugin, it's working great for our audio podcast.

    Soon we are going to start pushing out video as well, and we'd like to have the video appear just underneath the audio player.

    I tried adding the video to the post content using WP's native video shortcodes, but that caused a problem with the audio player. The video loaded and played fine, but the audio player rendered itself as a large black box with the words "Download file" inside of it. When I removed the video the post rendered the audio player correctly.

    Do you this this a bug with SSP or is it a mis-configuration with our site?

    I'm not sure why the one media player would be breaking the other. From v1.6 SSP is using the built-in media player bundled with WordPress, so if there are conflicts like this then it is more than likely an issue with how WordPress itself is generating the media players and not with SSP directly.

    Hi Hugh, thanks for your reply. I did some further testing on this here's what I found:

    I removed the MP3 audio from the SSP box and added it directly into the post content area using an audio shortcode. Then I added the MP4 video into the post content area using a video shortcode.

    The audio & video players both render correctly and play correctly.

    Then I removed all traces of the audio from the post content area, and added the MP3 back into the SSP upload box, and refreshed the post.

    The audio player is again malfunctioning when the audio is included via SSP.

    Here's a screenshot using the WP embed codes directly in the post content:

    Thanks for your help!

    Also here is a screenshot with all plugins deactivated except SSP and running the default Twenty Twelve theme (updated to the latest version)

    This is using the SSP upload box:

    This is a bug with SSP I've opened a new thread with the solution:


    I got this fixed on my site so this thread is Resolved
