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.
Powerpress is the #1 podcasting plugin for WordPress. It's reliable, easy to use and the most extensive and flexible podcasting solution.
We train all the students who take our [Advertisement moderated] how to set up and use Powerpress, so they too can experience the benefits of this fantastic plugin.
Couple this with the Clammr player plugin and you've got a complete player and sharing system for your podcast - awesonme!
Bravo Blubrry, keep up the great work!
I have used Powerpress for years for my podcasting needs and it has never disappointed. It is 100% reliable and rock solid. Highly recommended!
Fantastic plugin that bridges the gap between my RSS feed, blog post descriptions, and the itunes directory. Very easy to use. Highly recommended.
It's an outstanding plug-in and is so easy to use. We've just begun using it a couple of months and it's outstanding! The plug-in does the hard work so you simply have to type out almost everything, how can that be any easier?
unlike the other wordpress options bluberry does this really well. Makes separate editable posts for each episode, short codes, customization options, even a podcasting SEO section. Of course we have already hacked it to do ungodly things, but even strait out the box this plugin is killer.
I have been using this plugin on my client's site for several years and it has worked consistently with no problems. There are a lot of settings, so take the time to figure them out and you will be all set for years to come.
