Can someone PLEASE make a PodPress plugin alternative. That plugin is great, once you get it set up. Therein lies the problem. For those who use the plugin, you know what I mean. Every time you upgrade WordPress and/or the plugin, there are a bunch of tweaks you need to make in order to get it to work as it did before. The tweaks to get it to function are hit-and-miss and everyone does things differently to get to functionality. Then, recently, the help forums (which were providing a little help) went down, because of budget constraints. Frankly, most of the help there was just suggesting putting the same bandage over different types of wounds. It was more of a time-waster, really. Okay, now I’m complaining. The point is, I feel we need an alternative. (Competition is usually great, right?)
What we need is some way to easily (keyword, there) add MP3 files to our posts either from a local path or an external one (as is the case with my weblog) and have them appear in each post as a nice little player. PodPress goes one step further and assists in the auto podcasting of those MP3 files to popular engines. That really is a nicety, but isn’t necessary. We can do that on our own. (It’s sure easier than setting up PodPress everytime an upgrade comes out.)
