Having tried a few plugins, I can safely say this is the best one. With the basic settings and default options, it works great. From there, moving into all the various advanced feature and options makes it incredibly flexible and customizable. Their playlist shortcode in particular creates a beautiful player and playlist instantly. Their support staff is incredibly knowledgeable and helpful as well. I can't recommend this plugin enough.
PowerPress works super good! Special thanks for quick replies on tech issues even though the problem wasnt coming from plugin site. Step-by-step instruction helped to to fix WordPress properties — and get my podcast back to live!
The plugin is great and easy to use. I love that I can upload my audio files for my podcast from my own site and it saves the right to blubrry.com and then I can put them right into my posts.
Service wise, they have been great also. Whenever I've had a question or a problem, they have been very prompt in their replies and very clear in explaining the things I needed to do or the things that they could take care of, they did right away.
I recommend them to everybody I know that needs media hosting!
It is always comforting to know that you can count on a fast and efficient support.
Congratulation Powerpress Team.
I had never used a plug-in for a podcast before until I started using blubrry. It has completely changed how I do things. It so simple to use, extremely effective and such an intricate part of my podcasting efforts.
Anyone looking to do podcasting with a WordPress site needs to use Blubrry.
I installed Powerpress and have been using for several weeks--so far seems to work more or less perfectly, it is intuitive and easy to use, and does not get in the way of any other plugin or give problems to my custom theme. I only wish the entire world could operate half as well as this plugin!
I am not the most prolific podcaster, but I also don't want to spend a lot of time trying to make something work. PowerPress has worked consistently right out of the box, plus gave me the guidance I needed to actually get my podcasts up on iTunes.
I recently signed up with Blubrry, in part because of their hosting plan, but also because they integrate well with PowerPress.
The plugin has a simple and advanced mode, so you can get running really quickly. Later if you decide to tweak some settings, you have that option. Once you setup hosting, everything is done within WordPress. Super Easy.
The best part of all is the support. I had two issues - one with art now showing up in iTunes (that I caused myself), and one that was a issue on Blubrry's side. Both were resolved quickly. I'm actually surprised at home much attention was paid to my problem.
By the way, make sure the iTunes image is a jpg not a PNG - all other feed directories don't care, but Apple does.
We have used Blubrry since 2013 and since that time we have seen consistent updates and improvements to the plugin. We highly recommend it to churches and ministries!
I run an internet radio and podcasting platform and the PowerPress plugin for WordPress is the best plugin I have used for distributing podcasts. The plugin is very powerful and easy to use. We just upload the mp3 podcasts of our live programs, take the url and post it in the powerpress plugin for the post, verify the media and then publish. Real simple.
