Ready for a talk-specific embeddable player? We thought so.

Most embeddable players are designed for music content. We’re excited to announce the launch of our new podcast player. We set out to design a highly-shareable podcast player with a talk-format specific user interface and our accurate measurement system under the hood.

You can embed our new, sleek player anywhere – from mobile pages and social media feeds to websites and blogs. Our player measures all of these listens, whether they happen via a tweet, mobile visit, or fan blog post.

You can track listens from all channels in one place – including listens from the BTR site and RSS feed, your website, social media, external blogs and websites, mobile, iTunes, Stitcher, Overcast, and other pod catchers. 

Everyone can embed the single-episode player and multiplayer. You can even encourage listeners to embed episodes on their blogs and social media posts. Hosts with large accounts can also use the player to stream their live shows.

During our soft-launch phase, we saw a significant increase in listens for hosts who adopted the player on websites, blogs, and social media posts.

If you’ve embedded the old player, you’ll notice we’ve updated the look and feel. If you’d like your listeners to see the wave animation, you’ll need to update the embed code.

We’ve written a support article that explains how to embed the single-episode and multiplayer. Check it out and feel free to email support@blogtalkradio.com if you have any questions. We’d also love to hear host feedback about the player. Email your feedback to community@blogtalkradio.com.

The New BlogTalkRadio Portable Player Is Here!

Update: Our new partnership with Simple Podcast Press (SPP) allows you to automate your self-hosted WordPress posts. We’ve secured a discount for BTR hosts.


The BlogTalkRadio Portable Player enables you to share your show with more listeners on your site, blog and social networks. We’re happy to unveil a brand new version of this player with a  number of enhancements to help you further grow your audience of listeners. 

The player features the slick new look & feel of our recent redesign.  It also displays the images that you’ve attached to your show, just like the player on your BlogTalkRadio show page. 

Here’s what the new player looks like when embedded:

A big reason why we’re changing the player is to allow your show embeds to work on mobile devices, which typically use a built-in player instead of Flash or HTML5. This means your listeners will be able to listen to shows on their iPhone or Android phone as well as their desktop computer. 

To embed your show, you just copy your embed code right from your profile or episode page (depending on which you’d like to embed):
