Re: [podcasters] Odeo?
- The biggest problem your using libsyn as a webpage. Libsyn is meant to only be a host for the MP3 files and an rss.
I would say the reason why people are having problems with the google player is
1. Not having the latest version of adobe flash.
2. Some software blacklisted the player.
3. Browser not being updated.
If I where you, I'd head on over to godaddy.com and pick up a domain, then head over to hostgator.com or bluehost.com and get a hosting package. Install wordpress, find a good theme, install blubrrys powerpress plugin, and import your posts from libsyn.

Ben, Shawn Kenn -
Thanks for your responses. Here is my problem: I'm not computer-savvy
enough to do what you suggest. With Odeo and with the google player, all
I had to do was paste in some code for each podcast.
<embed type="application/ x-shockwave- flash" width="180" height="32"
src="http://www.odeo. com/flash/ audio_player_ standard_ gray.swf"
quality="high" allowscriptaccess= "always" wmode="transparent"
flashvars="valid_ sample_rate= true& external_ url=http://media. libsyn.co
m/media/danhughes/ PROGAMTITLE. mp3"
And for Google:
<embed type="application/ x-shockwave- flash" width="200" height="27"
src="http://www.google. com/reader/ ui/3247397568- audio-player. swf?audioUrl
=http://media. libsyn.com/ media/danhughes/ PROGRAMTITLE. mp3"
allowscriptaccess= "never" quality="best" bgcolor="#ffffff" wmode="window"
flashvars="playerMo de=embedded" ></embed>
No uploading other files or programs - that little bit of code did it
What I need is a similar bit of code to embed a player that works for
everybody. I have no way (that I know of) to upload specific programs to
my libsyn files.
So, can anyone give me code for a player that might be better than the
And do you know why many people who could access the Odeo player cannot
see the controls for the google player?

- Solved all my problems today! (Well, my podcast technical problems,
The reason a lot of computers weren't showing the google mp3 player with
my podcasts is that I had not removed all the calls for the Odeo mp3
player. So some operating systems or Windows versions or whatever were
locking up when they couldn't find the Odeo website, and not skipping on
to the next step, which was to grab the google player.
I removed all references to Odeo from my code, and now google loads as it
should, and everything plays correctly.
Thanks for all your input, and I'm glad I don't have to do all the work
it looked like I was facing.
