New WordPress Plugin For Podcasters

Nov 26th, 2008 | By | Category: Podcasting Software

Podcast Channels is a new WordPress plugin designed to fill in some of the gaps in WordPress’s native podcasting support:

What do you need to podcast with WordPress? Nothing — WordPress puts enclosures in the feed for you. That’s the bare bones and it works well enough.

But iTunes metadata would be nice. And, how about different info in different categories? Podcast Channels lets you specify iTunes metadata for the home feed, specific category feeds, and even ‘user defined’ (‘Conditional’) feeds (see the FAQ).

The user defined feed feature basically lets you set up a podcast feed for any arbitrary collection of media files on your site. 

If you’re using Podcast Channels, let us know what you think of it in the comments.

  1. Would love to know how it compares to PodPress. The development of PodPress appears to have been stalled and until it is properly updated I for one will not update my WP installation to 2.6 let alone 2.7 for fear of it breaking my podcast.
