Creating Custom Players

Sometimes you'll want to create custom playlists for your episodes for easy listening! The best way to do that is by customizing your embed player using tags! This comes in handy if you want to split your podcast into two or more categories while keeping them all on the same feed. 

Let's say you want to create a playlist that only has your interview episodes on it! The process of setting that up is simple. Just create the tag "Interview" and then add it as a tag on all episodes in your feed that are an interview! Then all episodes that are tagged with "interview" will show in one embed player together. 

You can add your tag to any episode in Buzzsprout using the Tags field. Check out the steps below with instructions on how to apply this to your own podcast!

  1. Click the episode that you would like to tag on your Episodes page. 
  2. Click Edit and scroll down until you find the tags field. Enter your tags (separated by a comma) and be sure to hit save when you are done.

  3. Once your tags are added, you can go to the Players page and customize the embed player for all your episodes tagged with "Interview".
    Custom_Players_2
    Custom_Players_3
  4. Now just click Copy Embed Code and you will have the code for your custom player.
The code generated will give you your customized player! If you give any new episodes that tag, they will show up in the player automatically. On that same page, you can customize the number of episodes included in a player and the artist pulled!
