Blubrry PowerPress does not allocate you to include manifold media files for one feed item (blog post). This is in view of the fact that each podcatcher handles manifold enclosures in feeds differently. iTunes will download the first enclosure that it sees in the feed ignoring the rest. Other podcatchers and podcasting directories either pick of the litter up the first enclosure or the last in each post item. This inconsistency combined with the detail that Dave Winer does not recommend manifold enclosures and the FeedValidator.org sanction against it is why the Blubrry PowerPress does not support them.
As a alternative, PowerPress allows you to make additional Custom Podcast Feeds to normal any magnitude of media format and/or length in a blog post to specific custom feeds. For example, you can make one blog post associated to separate video and audio podcast feeds saving you time from entering your show notes double.
Blubrry PowerPress does not include media data built-in. This is not in view of the fact that Blubrry has its own data service, although that’s a excellent reason by itself. Maintaining and calculating data is a resource and server intensive task that would add balloon to an otherwise well-organized WordPress podcasting plugin. We recommend by your media hosting’s web data to give you basic download numbers and, if you are in quest of more grandular measurements such as client and geographical information for each episode, you’re more than welcome to use the Blubrry Data service as well.
As of Blubrry PowerPress translation 0.8, you may now access your Blubrry Data from within your WordPress dashboard.
You can insert the media player within yoru blog posts by by the WordPress shortcode feature. The shortcode for PowerPress is [powerpress] (all lowercase)
You may use the shortcode to add a player to other media files (non episode files) by specifying the media url in the shortcode: [powerpress url="http://example.com/path/to/media.mp3"]
For advanced users with manifold podcast feeds, you may insert the player for a specific feed by specifying the feed slug in the shortcode: [powerpress feed="podcast"]
If you want to specify a cover image, add an image attribute which points to the specific image url: [powerpress image="http://example.com/path/to/cover_image.jpg"] Experimental
File uploads are tough to handle in view of the fact that here are so many web hosting variations with uncommon upload size limits. We recommend by an FTP application to upload large media files. FTP is much more well-organized than web based uploads and is typically provided by nearly all web hosting providers.
In view of the fact that of the feature restrictions and branding that FlowPlayer.org seats on FlowPlayer 3.x versions, we do not plot on updating the player packaged with PowerPress. The PAID commence-source FlowPlayer is not compatible with theFREE commence source PowerPress plugin.
