Podcast is a plugin bundled with CaRP Evolution 4.0.8 and higher. It works with the 1 Pixel Out Audio Player to display a Flash-powered audio player for each MP3 in a podcast feed.

Beginning with version 4.0.21a, it can alternatively use an HTML5 "audio" tag to play the podcast. Be aware, however, that not all major browsers currently support the MP3 format with the audio tag.

What Does “Know, Like and Trust” Mean to Affiliates?
You've heard it before: "customers buy from people they know, like and trust. So let your personality shine."

Announcing the White Hat Crew Inner Circle
I'm a little late posting today, because I've been putting the finishing touches on something new: the White Hat Crew Inner Circle.

To install Podcast:
  1. If "podcast.php" is not already found in your "plugins" folder, upload it to that folder.
  2. Download the 1 Pixel Out Audio Player.
  3. If you have a WordPress blog, you may wish to install it in your WordPress plugins directory.
  4. Otherwise, upload just audio-player.js and player.swf to your webserver. You can put them anywhere as long as they're web-accessible and both files are in the same folder.


To tell CaRP Evolution to use Podcast:
  1. Enter the following command into your webpage after "require_once '/path/to/carp.php';":
  2. Tell the plugin where audio-player.js and player.swf are located by adding a line of code like this:
    • The path should end with "/".
    • If the files are not on the same server as the page where you're displaying the podcast, enter the full URL of the folder. Otherwise, you can enter just the path as in the example above.
  3. By default, the plugin adds a "<br />" (line break) tag after the podcast player. If you wish to change that, or add something before the podcast player, use CaRP's "bipodcast" and "aipodcast" settings to specify what to display. Be sure to set those settings after loading the plugin.
  4. If desired, use the settings below to customize your podcast players.

Important Notes:


The Podcast plugin has the following settings, which are members of the array $podcastcarpconf:

Flash-Only Settings

HTML5-Only Settings

Example Code:

require_once '/YOUR/PATH/TO/carp/carp.php';
$podcastcarpconf['bg']='FFFFFF'; // White page background
$podcastcarpconf['player-settings']['bg']='FFFFCC'; // Yellow player background
$podcastcarpconf['player-settings']['track']='006633'; // Dark green track
