Podlove Podcast Publisher

Açıklama

We built the Podlove Podcast Publisher because existing solutions are stuck in the past, complex and unwieldy. The Publisher helps you save time, worry less and provides a cutting edge listening experience for your audience.

Video Tutorial: Getting started with Podlove Publisher

Compatible Feeds

The Publisher makes it easy to create highly expressive, efficient and super compatible podcast feeds with fine grained control over client behavior (e.g. GUID control to replace faulty episodes and for clients to reload) supporting all important meta data.

Multi-Format Publishing

The Publisher also makes multi-format publishing – embracing all modern and legacy audio and video codecs – a snap. By adopting simple file name conventions, the plugin allows the podcaster to provide individual feeds for certain use cases or audiences without adding work for the podcaster during the publishing process.

Optimized Web Player

The Publisher also comes with integrated with the Podlove Web Player plugin (which you do not need to install separately) and fully support its advanced options including multiple audio (MP4 AAC, MP3, Vorbis, Opus) and video (MP4 H.264, WebM, Theora) format support for web browsers. This Web Player is fully HTML5 compatible (but provides Flash fallback for ancient environments) and is ready for all touch based clients too.

Chapter Support

The Publisher also makes it easy to publish chapter information in the player to make access to structured episodes even easier. Full support for linking directly to any part of your podcast on the web with instant playback included.

Flexible Templates

To round it all up, a flexible template system enables you to published Podcasts in a defined fashion and change the style at any time without having to touch your individual postings later on.

And this is just the beginning. We have a rich roadmap that will bring even more interesting features: integration with helpful services, much improved timeline metadata support (show notes) and much more.

İncelemeler

easy to use, free, no cloud dependencies

This plugin is really easy to use and works as expected. The podcast pages as well as the podcast feed look very good and contain all information. There's a good player included and it combines well with the "Podlove Subscribe Button". I tried several other plugins: "Seriously Simple Podcasting" works very similar but is more confusing, "Blubrry Podcasting" has some kind of cloud dependency i.e. requires an account on their page. "Podlove Publisher" for me is the clear winner.

Best Non-Commercial Podcast Plugin

This is by far the best non-commercial podcast plugin available for WordPress. It's not always easy to use, and you have to pay close attention to what you're doing when you're setting the settings, but once you get it the way you want it, it runs very well.

Best podcast plugin

I host my podcast on a site with a different name, so I wanted a way to customise my podcast URL so that the feed has the podcast name in it and not just the domain name. This let me do that with no hassle, and is just a really slick podcast in general. Thanks so much!

Breaks some major details

Looks pretty cool and comes with a great mp3 player. BUT had some conflicts with Yoast SEO that kept the links from showing up with the featured image and snippet in social media. I figured out how to configure things so that they worked together and thought things were great. THEN I noticed that the podcast feed was broken. It kept throwing the feed into a redirect loop or redirecting to the home page. This was despite disabling all other plugins and changing the theme to Twenty Seventeen. Couldn't ever get that ironed out so I gave up on it. UPDATE: Changing my review. I solved the YOAST SEO conflict by unchecking the Open Graphs setting in Podlove > Modules. The feed issue was caused by server-side caching, CDN and the Let's Encrypt SSL certificate. I disabled the certificate and that corrected the issue. (There is a setting in Podlove > Expert Settings that can help with this but I had to just disable the certificate). There are A LOT of little things that you can adjust with this plugin. That means you might need to take your time and review all of the setting carefully. Once you've got everything dialed in it's great but I'm not sure why Powerpress was able to create a valid feed with my server configuration but Podlove was not.

Poorly written script; Resource hog

I just installed it and was going to go back later tomorrow to set it up and try it out. However, over the course of the day, it slurped up my entire feed and crashed my site due to excessive CPU usage. I'm not sure why since I hadn't changed any settings yet. Totally useless and a bunch of angry subscribers.

Transcripts

“Transcripts” is the new module to manage transcripts, show them on your site and in the web player. You can import them from webvtt files. If you are already using the Podlove Publisher contributors, you can assign people to the voices inside the webvtt. Then you even get avatars automatically in your transcripts.

See https://forschergeist.de/podcast/fg066-klimaneutralitaet/ for an example episode with transcripts in the web player.

Transcripts: Shortcode

The shortcode [podlove-transcript] displays a pretty html version of the transcript for your website.

Transcripts: Twig Template Support

Of course there is a fully featured template API for transcripts as well. For example:

{% for group in episode.transcript %}

{{ group.contributor.image.html({width: 50}) }}

{{ group.contributor.name }}

{% for line in group.items %}
{{ line.content }}
{% endfor %}

{% endfor %}

See https://docs.podlove.org/podlove-publisher/reference/template-tags.html for all details.

Global Podcast Analytics

The following metrics are now available for the whole podcast:

  • downloads per month
  • top episodes
  • episode asset
  • podcast client
  • operating system
  • download source

Raw Analytics

I wouldn’t call this an Analytics API but since it exists to power the analytics screen, I might as well document it. The following endpoints return results in CSV format for easy processing or import to spreadsheets.

Here is an example call that returns the number of downloads in March 2019:

https://your.domain/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php?action=podlove-analytics-global-downloads-per-month&date_from=2019-03-01T00:00:00.000Z&date_to=2019-03-31T23:59:59.999Z

All requests take the same three parameters:

  • action defines what data you want
  • date_from is the start date in ISO 8601
  • date_end is the end date in ISO 8601

Available actions are:

  • podlove-analytics-global-downloads-per-month
  • podlove-analytics-global-top-episodes
  • podlove-analytics-global-assets
  • podlove-analytics-global-clients
  • podlove-analytics-global-systems
  • podlove-analytics-global-sources

You need to be logged in with admin permissions for the requests to work.

Disclaimer: Depending on the popularity of your podcast and chosen date range, the requests may take a long time to respond, or even fail if the calculation takes longer than the timeout defined in your web server.

Other

  • background jobs: add button to abort job
  • new tab style for chapter marks section
  • Podlove Web Player 4 fallback for old browsers and disabled JavaScript
