A New Podcast Plugin for WordPress



My team at RawVoice has released our latest podcasting tool, it’s called the Blubrry PowerPress Podcast Plugin for WordPress.

The PowerPress plugin was built to support podcasters and also support our Premium Publishing Service at RawVoice. While the plugin carries the name of our flagship website it will work with anyone looking to publish a podcast on WordPress.

The Podcast Plugin has some of the following features

  • Easily add/modify/remove podcast episodes from blog posts
  • Integrated media player
  • iTunes RSS tags
  • iTunes album/cover art
  • Standard RSS Feed album/cover art
  • Ability to upload new cover art
  • Ping iTunes
  • Media size detection
  • Duration length detection (mp3 only)
  • 3rd party statistics integration

My team had a goal to make a podcast plugin that would be easy to maintain as WordPress matures. The way it was developed was to ensure that the plugin stores podcast episodes the way WordPress expects them natively.

RawVoice looks forward to community feedback and like all products we develop it will continue to evolve over time.
