Advanced Embeddable Podcast Player Customizations & More!

It’s weekly update time!! As always, we’ve worked hard to listen to what you’d love to see in Captivate and have put together the latest release as follows…

  • Advanced player customization options: We’re seeing podcasters all over the world using the Captivate player within their marketing stack. Often, that means that the player is integrated into a current website using Captivate Sync™ or via a direct embed. We’ve made it easy to control every single aspect of the interaction ability of a listener using the embeddable player by giving you the option to decide what you’d like your player to show to a listener. Head to your player settings for a look see. Thanks to Daniel J. Lewis!
  • Captivate Sites social updates: We now show all social links entered in your personal Captivate profile within the bio section of your Captivate powered podcast website. We’ve also shifted from two additional external links and now will display one link, but with a custom label for the link. We force the update to your website whenever you save your profile. Magic! Not really… CODE!
  • Added IAB Verified logo to sponsor kits: Following last week’s announcement that Captivate is now IAB Certified (awww yeah!) we’ve added the IAB verified seal logo to your sponsor kit so that potential sponsors can see that your podcast analytics are verified accurate. Shazam!
