Podcasting with Amazon Pollycast

With Amazon Pollycast feeds., your visitors can listen to your audio content using standard podcast applications. RSS 2.0-compliant Pollycast feeds provide the XML data needed to aggregate podcasts by popular mobile podcast applications, such as iTunes, and podcast directories.

When you install the AWS for WordPress plugin, choose the ITunes explicit option to automatically add Amazon Pollycast endpoints to all WordPress archive URLs. This lets you syndicate both site-wide or targeted podcasts. If you didn't choose the ITunes explicit option when you installed the plugin, follow these steps:

  1. On the WordPress Admin page, choose Settings.

  2. On the Settings page, choose ITunes explicit.

You can add Amazon Pollycast endpoints manually by adding /amazon-pollycast/ to the URL for a page in a podcasting application. For example:

example.com/amazon-pollycast/ example.com/category/news/amazon-pollycast/ example.com/author/john/amazon-pollcast/

Positioning the Player

When you install the AWS for WordPress plugin plugin, it displays an audio player at the top of your WordPress website by default unless you choose to display it under your site's text or to not display it.

 

You can reposition the player, remove it, or add it (if you chose not to display it) at any time.

To reposition the player, remove it, or add it to your WordPress website

  1. On the WordPress Admin page, choose Settings.

  2. On the Amazon Polly Settings page, for Player position, choose the appropriate option.

For more information about setting configuration options, see Configuring the Plugin.
