Blubrry PowerPress brings the essential features for podcasting to WordPress including full iTunes support, Web audio/video media players and more.
Works great! No problems what so ever. Highly recommend.
Title says it all. Blubrry plugin is intuitive, has a multitude of options including category podcasting, easily submit to iTunes and provides all the pertinent information needed to get accepted.
Whether you host through them or not, it just works.
This plugin does a lot. However, after configuring it for my specific podcast, it's on auto pilot. I produce a weekly podcast and this plugin does all the work of submitting the mp3 file to iTunes. It also gives me a player I can embed into the shownotes post in WordPress.
I wonder if at some point, it will provide an option to use the built in MP3 player WordPress now has instead of the ones provided by the plugin.
There's a lot to this plugin I don't use but since I only had to configure it once, it's not a big deal.
I started a new podcast for Blog Tyrant a few weeks ago and went with PowerPress.
There are a lot of features to get through which might be daunting for a beginner, but, to be honest, you will need to figure these out for any plugin that you go with and this one does them really well.
I initially had some problems with the plugin as it was clashing with a different plugin that I had installed. I got great support in the forums and over email by the creator which was really nice.
The player itself displays in your blog posts nicely (here's how it looks on mine: [Moderator note: Link redacted - Please don't embed links in reviews]/) and it works well on mobile devices which is really important.
I've been using PowerPress for years now. I like how it takes care of all the details of podcasting for me. Recommended!
This plugin is regularly updated and maintained so that as a podcaster you have the most current information and tools to keep your shows live.
Like everyone else I'm pleased with the plugin. I'm new to podcasting and it's nice to have a solid product to work with.
Honestly, I was skittish about using this plugin to manage my podcast, but gave it a shot anyway. It works much, much better than I had expected. It was easy to set up, easy to get connected with iTunes, and with 50+ episodes already, have not had any issues.
The part that I love best is that you really do have solid control over how things appear in iTunes. You make any changes to your posts, and they are reflected in iTunes.
I'm hosting my podcast media with Amazon S3, and it has been seamless, reliable, and easy.
Looking forward to seeing where this plugin goes from here.
Thanks. Works well with iTunes!
The Gamery Podcast [ link deleted please do not post links in reviews ] would be no where near as good or as frequent without this plugin! Amazing.
