Re: [podcasters] Podpress VS Powerpress.
We built the PowerPress plugin over the past "week" to support our
Premium Publishing Service at Blubrry. It is not designed to be a
Podpress competitor. It's a lightweight podcast plugin for our
customers, and those using our, or other third party stats service.
We have thousands of members on Blubrry & TechPodcasts.com most of which
host their web sites using Wordpress. With the launch of our latest
services (Podcast Publishing Premium
<https://secure.blubrry.com/product.php?p=3> and Podcast Publishing
Premium with Hosting <https://secure.blubrry.com/product.php?p=4>), we
found it necessary to offer a podcasting plugin that can support
episodes posted from our system. The task was simple: develop a
Wordpress podcasting plugin that stores podcast episodes the way
Wordpress (natively) expects them! Now our Publishing members /
customers can publish their episodes through our system which cross
posts their podcast episodes to their Wordpress blog and have fully
compliant validated RSS feeds with optimized iTunes / Zune Market place
Being we have our own stats service (
http://www.blubrry.com/podcast_statistics/ ) that we spent many months
developing in which several thousand people are using, along with a
number of commercial media networks, we did not add any stats components
to the plugin as we already have a statistics solution that is a very
comprehensive product. Blubrry Stats provides statistical information
that will never be capable of being replicated in a plugin.
We look forward to everyones feedback and like all of our products will
mature over time.
