Media Player Customizations

Once you arrive at the Advanced Settings page in your WordPress admin interface, you can begin to customize your media player. We'll cover the different sorts of customizations you can make below. 

Media Player Style and Color

There are a variety of media player styles. Once you're in the Podcast Import > Advanced Settings interface, you can select different media player styles by going to the Player Settings section, then selecting the drop-down next to Player Skin.

Host Player

The Host media player takes on a certain style based on your podcast host. This media player style usually only allows for one color customization.

This type of media player works with the following hosts: 

  • Libsyn
  • Anchor
  • Buzzsprout
  • Captivate
  • Simplecast
  • Transistor
Libsyn Host Player Example

This no-nonsense media player strips away all the extras. In its place, you're left with a simplified media player. This media player offers three different color customization options.

Advanced Block Player

The Advanced Block media player adds more space and information to the media player, especially compared to the simplified media player. It also supports three color customization options.
