Blubrry Podcast Player

With Closed Caption Support

Some Important Considerations for the new Player

Note: After switching to the new player, the player for old episodes could take up to 24 hours to update, depending on cache settings. For those using PowerPress, switching over to the new player should be much quicker.

If you have transcripts for your older episodes and are using the embed option for your player on your site, the transcription requires that the iframe have a larger height for a good user experience This page uses a 250 height “height=”250px”. The iframe on older posts could be set to the old height for people using the embed directly on old episodes. You can re-copy the embed or change the height variable in the iFrame. You can contact support if you need help updating older episodes.

If you use episode-level images, those will appear in your player similar to how they worked with the standard player below.

You should populate your destinations in the blurry dashboard to assure that your podcast player subscribe options have follow/subscribe destination.

The new modern Blubrry Player only shows the closed caption link when a .srt or .vtt file is linked in the transcription section. If you attach any other type of file pdf, doc, txt then a simple transcript with a download tag will appear that will allow the downloading of the media file. If no file is placed in the transcript area then neither CC or Transcript will appear.

See examples below:

Closed Caption File SRT or VTT



Transcript: PDF TXT
