  1. The reason that PodPress is so important is that there exists no central portal for podcasts like YouTube is for video.

    iTunes fills that niche for podcasting but you can’t use the iTunes store with a browser so individual podcasters have to find a way to bring in their own listeners. Many people don’t know that you don’t actually have to have an iPod (or other MP3 player) to listen to podcasts so it is critical for podcasters to place a player on their websites.

    PodPress is not the only solution but it seems to me to be head and shoulders above the others in that I can associate each episode with a single player. In fact it was PodPress that brought me to WordPress. Of course WordPress offers lots of ways to pull in audience.

  2. I have been using PodPress for a while. I went from an older version to 8.8 and not sure what happened, but now when I try to play an audio file I get the following message: “error opening file”
    The file location listed in General Settings is correct. If anyone has any ideas on how to fix this problem, I would greatly appreciate it.
