First Impression of the Smart Podcast Player
Dave bought the Smart Podcast Player, and unfortunately it has a condlict with one of my other plugins. The good news is their support is all over it. I'm really impress with their team. It pulls your items in via the RSS feed (not the host). So you can use it if you're on Libsyn.com Blubrry,com, Soundcloud.com (or really anybody).
Is a better player going to get you more listens?
Dave uses the player from Blubrry.com
