Spreaker announced that they have updated their embedded player. The new, cleaner, version allows podcasters to customize the player to fit with their brand.
Guiding your listeners to your homebase to listen to your podcast allows you to keep your branding and distribution exactly how you want it. Even your chosen font on your website is connected to your distinctive look. The updated player is therefore geared for that level of customization, providing a white label solution with the option to remove the Spreaker logo.
To customize the Spreaker embedded player, podcasters must start at Spreaker’s CMS. You can choose to remove Spreaker’s logo if you want to. This feature is for those who feel Spreaker’s logo clashes with their background image, or who prefer not to have any text displayed other than the episode title.
Another update to the embedded player allows you to remove the comments, likes, and share icons. Spreaker wisely points out: “If you like to think of your website as a space for a deeper engagement with your content, it’s worth considering that removing buttons can actually help you keep people on the website, listening to the player while they navigate through the pages.”
Other features of the new embedded player include:
- Ability to add a background picture to the player – Choose one that reflects your topic, or select a selfie.
- Ability to choose light or dark themes – To keep the player matching the tone of your website.
- Ability to choose to allow all of you content to start playing automatically when a LIVE starts.
- WordPress users can add the Spreaker embedded player without needing a special plug-in.
