Personal Life Media Debuts Podcast Widget

Aug 14th, 2008 | By | Category: Podcast Distribution, Podcasting

Lifestyle podcast and blog network Personal Life Media today unveiled a new audio player widget for distributing multiple podcast RSS feeds. The customizable widget, in turn, can be added to a user’s social network profile, blog or personal webpage.

The player is free and can be customized to match any web page or blog as well as to include podcast information on Facebook, MySpace and twenty other sites such as iGoogle and WordPress using widget-maker Gigya’s Wildfire widget distribution technology. The player can be branded with a corporate logo “for an integrated look and feel,” according to today’s announcement.

Podcasters who produce more than a single show can use the widget to present up to five shows in a single widget on their site, blog or social services. As each new episode is published, it is automatically updated to the podcaster’s widget. The podcaster’s fans can grab the player and put it on their own site as well.

Early adopters of the new podcast player widget include Chris MacDonald, founder of music discovery publisher IndieFeed, and C.C. Chapman, multi-show podcaster with social media strategy firm, The Advance Guard. The free podcast widget is available here.
