Blubrry PowerPress Podcast Plugin Ver 4.0 Released
« on: May 12, 2012, 07:58:26 AM »
Just got this in my email this morning and thought I'd share it with you guys and gals.



The Blubrry PowerPress Podcasting Plugin Version 4.0 has been released and brings the latest essential features for media creation to WordPress, including the hottest updates to the new iTunes specifications.

“I am proud of this release of PowerPress, in supporting the latest iTunes podcast specs, additionally this update introduces innovative features first to market for the 10’s of thousands of media creators that rely on PowerPress,” said Todd Cochrane, CEO of RawVoice.

iTunes upgrades include:

An updated iTunes image requirement -- RGB 1400x1400 -- throughout the plugin for better cover image quality throughout.

“Feature Episode” that allow podcasters to designate a primary episode, which can be used to introduce the podcast or lead in to a new series.

An iTunes Order feature that allows a podcaster doing a series of episodes to have each listed in the desired order.

Other PowerPress 4.0 offerings include:

A new video player option: VideoJS HTML5 JavaScript player -- a player that has its own plugin. By adding this plugin, the new player will be available as an option in PowerPress video players list.

A Feed Episode Maximizer "option" for shows with episodes in excess of what can currently be included in a feed. This feature allows the podcaster to maintain the latest 10 episodes in iTunes with all of the extensive episode data. The rest of the episodes are listed in a way that maximizes the number of episodes that can be listed on iTunes / Zune etc. Perfect for the serial podcaster with an extensive episode library.

Saw that this morning and just finished resizing my iTunes .jpg to fit the 1400 x 1400.  Sifting through the new changes as we speak but I still have a lot to unpack. 

Feed Maximizer and and Feature Episode seem really cool.  May be time to kick out a new episode on what FPN does, post it, and submit.  My first episode that explains FPN was back in the iProRecorder days on my iPhone...so it sounded like crap with turn signals and cars honking. 

Good info Ben.
