3rd Party Player + Redirect
« on: January 29, 2018, 09:49:08 am »
Hi,

I recently signed up for the free stat service to test on my podcast. I'm also testing a new 3rd party player and was wondering if there's a redirect that I should be using in my shortcode?

I was previously testing Podtrac and adding "http://dts.podtrac.com/redirect.mp3/" to the front of the source file and that seemed to work flawlessly. For example;


[newmedia_player songname="C/HDM Vol. 2" type="detect" source="http://dts.podtrac.com/redirect.mp3/https://www.mysite.com/chdm-002.mp3" thumb="https://www.mysite.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/CHDM-002.png" replace_artistname="MyName" config="New-Player" cover="https://www.mysite.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/CHDM-002.png" autoplay="off" loop="off" open_in_ultibox="off" enable_likes="off" enable_views="off" play_in_footer_player="off" enable_download_button="on"]

Is there a redirect that I should be using for the Blubrry Stats?

BTW: I tried using "http://media.blubrry.com/mysite/"  but that didn't work.

Thanks in advance.

What is the name of your show as it appears in the Blubrry directory listing?

This seems to be working and not breaking the player...

I picked up the Professional Stats package and was able to confirm via the Referral Section, that the link below is being tracked from plays on my 3rd party player.

Thanks, Shawn. I'm feeling quite accomplished, lol.
Looking forward to finally seeing how my podcast is actually doing.
