Embed podcasts into your WordPress.com posts


odeo.pngJust a quick post, but I thought I’d let others out there know that operate a blog at wordpress.com, that you can now embed your favourite podcast via Odeo into a written post on your blog. The kind folks here at WordPress.com have given us bloggers a brand new feature which creates a small little Odeo Podcast player on a post we’ve written.

To use this new feature, all you have to do is:

  1. Find your favourite podcasts ‘audio player page’ and grab the URL from the address bar. It should look like: http://odeo.com/audio/1968091/view

  2. Write out this URL in your blog post like this: odeocode.gif

  3. Thats it! An audio player will appear in your blog, simple as that.

This is really cool. I figured i’d get in on the action and post one of my favourite podcasts, diggnation.
