There are basically four ways to use the Podlove Web Player:

1 Manual WordPress Shortcode

Use a simple shortcode in your posts and pages, and the Podlove Web Player will appear, playing any media file you want to assign. Basic usage:

title=”My episode title”
subtitle=”Episode Subtitle”

Use an existing post with a media enclosure that is provided from plugins like Blubrry:


Or in case you have our Podlove Publisher installed:


2 Using WordPress Gutenberg Blocks

You can choose between different references, like Podlove Publisher, Blocks or you can add the meta data manually. Right now the latter option is limited to a limited set of attributes, this will be expanded in further releases.

3 Automatic Integration with Podcasting Engines

If you are using Podlove Publisher you should be able to select it in the Publisher Player settings.
In case you are still using Blubrry you can simply enable the automatic insertions on enclosures in the settings and choose the position.

Next episode plays automatically all the time. No way to stop it. No community, no support. If it breaks, you are alone.

The web player plugin hasn´t been updated for a while, but there are very great features developed now. Thanks for your work!

Works great, easy to use. I was worried because of the 1 star ratings. It appears those are pretty old, 4-5 years. Those ratings should age out. It works in Firefox. It is exactly what I was looking for.
