Podcast test site

Filed under: posts — Ben @ 11:53 pm

This is a test site for technical testing of podcasting with WordPress. The customised RSS feed is provided by PodPress 8.8 plugin, while the posts use Anarchy Media Player to load the movies in this site.  A reference movie is used on the site which determines the appropriate version for your connection speed.

There is currently still an issue with Anarchy Media Player and IE7 which is yet to be resolved. That’s next on the list.

You can view the iTunes version of this site at <http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewPodcast?id=294152076> or check the RSS feed directly at <http://podcast.bigben.id.au/?feed=podcast>
