How to setup a Podcast on your website


Embedded Flash MP3 Audio Player

This isn’t the definitive reference for Podcasting on your website, but it will help you post an MP3 to any website using a slick little Flash player.  This article will be expanded as features are added.


  1. Download this MP3 Player for WordPress: http://www.1pixelout.net/code/audio-player-wordpress-plugin/
  2. Unzip the files and upload only player.swf and audio-player.js to your website.
  3. Upload the MP3 to your website (sampling rate of either 44.1 kHz or 22.05 kHz)
  4. Add the HTML for the player to the page you want it on, adjusting the variables for your own URLs
<SCRIPT language=”JavaScript” src=”http://www.domain.com/audio-player.js“></SCRIPT>
<object type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” data=”http://www.domain.com/player.swf” id=”audioplayer1″ height=”24″ width=”290″>
<param name=”movie” value=”http://www.domain.com/player.swf”>
<param name=”FlashVars” value=”playerID=audioplayer1&soundFile=http://www.domain.com/music.mp3“>
<param name=”quality” value=”high”>
<param name=”menu” value=”false”>
<param name=”wmode” value=”transparent”>

The code for this How To came from this excellent resource: http://www.macloo.com/examples/audio_player/

Note: If you want to use more than one player on the same page, simply create a unique id for the Object (audioplayer2 works) and the FlashVar playerID.

Note: If you use Blogger, you will need to place the SCRIPT tag into the Blogger template inside the HEAD tag.  See link above for an example.

Note: You can also change the colors, loop or auto-start….click here
