Am I limited to 30 days evaluation if I choose the free dowload?
If I buy the licence key, can I hide the copyright message at the bottom of the webpart ?|
|Seb, the free download is limited to 30 days (full functionality). The copyright message is only displayed if no license key is given.|
|Ok, thank you for the information.
Another question, is this webpart compatible with a french site template ? because i have some problems to display video. I have the same message like the AudioPlayer Webpart : "Sharepoint List not found"... Any ideas ?|
|Seb, to which web part are you actually referring to ? The Podcast web part does not access any Sharepoint List.|
|I don't speak about podcast webpart, but both AudioPlayer and MediaPlayer webpart.|

|I have been testing the video functionality in the Podcast web part using different browsers. Seems to work ok in IE and Safari but in Firefox the 'Play Video' links do not work; although the video player will if you click the 'play' button. Can this be sorted?
we now have fixed the problem with the „Play” button (QuickTime player).
Please download the updated Zip file and replace the DLL with the new version (followed by an “iisreset” if you placed the DLL in c:\windows\assembly)
|Great web part. only problem is we want to make the web part more narrow than the player. when we click play, we can't get to the stop or pause button so we ahve refresh the page. Can we shrink the player so it doesn't go out so far to the right or don't have it at all, like maybe a simple, play, stop button.|
we have now added a new „Use simple Player” option to the Podcast Web Part which uses an MP3 player with an optimal size of 200 pixels.
If this is still too wide, you can shrink the player by setting the “Player Width” option to a smaller value.
Installation of new version: Please replace the DLL (see attached Zip file) in the c:\windows\assembly folder, followed by an “iisreset” command.
|The webpart works great but it leaves a white box in the page. Is there a way change the background?|
what exactly do you mean by "leaves a white box" ? Can you send us a screen shot to firstname.lastname@example.org ?|

Can this webpart work with a sharepoint list that is referencing externally hosted video files? I know the media player allows a URL column... but when I tried that with this web part the video would not play.|
the Podcast web part currently does not support external files via an “URL” column (as the Media Player web part does). We could actually add this feature if needed.

|I am trying to use the podcast web part with a sharepoint rss that includes the encloure tag.
it is working ok for videos (the play video link appear), but for mp3s , the player appear as "X" for both simple and regular format.
I am Using SharePoint 2010.is there any thing i need to add?|
we recommend to use the „internal Feed” format (as opposed to entering the Sharepoint Library RSS Feed URL) as follows:
“RSS Feed URL” web part setting:
Enter the Sharepoint Library path name of the Sharepoint Library to be used as a feed.
Enter the full Library path as follows: "current site/subsite/Library Name". (do not preceed the entered value with the server host name).
Example: SomeSubsite/Audio Library
|I have the web part working except the link for the TITLE field on my document library tries to open the item (xxx/dispform.aspx?ID=5). However this gives me a '404 file not found' error. Can I turn this 'link' off? If not, can it be corrected? THanks!|
can you quickly compare the podcast title's URL with the correct Sharepoint Library detail page's URL to see the difference ?
To turn off the link, use the web part's "Template" field to create your own layout.
|that will work, thanks!|
|When I test this on our external website, when 'play' is clicked, a login authentication window appears (as to log into the site). When I click cancel in this window, the video plays. I do not receive the login prompt when clicking the file link from the document library list. Anonymous authentication is enabled, etc. Can this be corrected? Thanks.|
|Nevermind...I added the 'safe' information and it appears to be working now.|
|Trying to use a SharePoint list with the Podcast webpart, but getting 'Sharepoint List not found:' message. |
Web part is on this page: /info/mgmt_meetings/Pages/default.aspx.
The Document Library containing the podcasts is here /info/mgmt_meetings/Staff%20briefing%20Podcasts/.
What do I need to put in the Podcast URL box in Web Part config? Thanks
|Chris, please enter: info/mgmt_meetings/Staff briefing Podcasts |
|We are using this (it's awesome by the way) But only the first video podcast seems to play. when you click play video nothing seems to happen. Any thoughts?|
|Hi, I just had a question on recording how many hits a file might get. Does this Podcast use cache. I've uploaded an mp3 but needed to create a url document link in sharepoint to put into the podcast list - (not sure i needed to) but now the podcast document link, reports less hits than the actual mp3 file itself. thoughts? |
yes, the MP3 files are typically cached by the browser and do not generate any server hits when being played back via the Podcast web part.
|I have the eval running on my intranet sharepoint home page (https). When users hit the site, they see a message from the browser. Something like "Are you sure you want to mix secure and insecure content?" If they choose No, the ipod player controls appear like a bad url image, e.g. like an "X" Did I configure something wrong? |
|Can I use with Sharepoint 2010 Foundation? sorry got to ask but really interested.|
the Podcast Web Part works both with SP 2007 and SP 2010.
|Same kind of webpart using SilverPlayer in PKS.Codeplex.com|
|Webpart loaded and I added the iTunes URL for need podcast and get the following msg:|
Unable to load Podcast feed: The underlying connection was closed: Could not establish trust relationship for the SSL/TLS secure channel.
can you indicate the URL you entered into the web part's "Podcast URL" setting ?
|Hi worked great when we were on SharePoint 2007 now it doesn't seem to work in 2010 - has this been updated for 2010?|
the web part is compatible with Sharepoint 2007, 2010 and 2013.
What exactly does not work ? Do you get any error message ?
|what video formats can we use? and will this webpart allow to run the video on Mac platform including mobile devices? |
the web part supports MOV, MP4, M4V, AVI, WMV and FLV videos. We will be going to add HTML5 support for Ihone and IPad in the web part's next version.
|If I use WMV or FLV , will the same video display in MAC as well?|
you will need to use MP4 in this case since Safari does not support FLV (Flash) and WMV (Microsoft).
|I have 2 questions or issues:|
1) my .wav file shows with "play video" but there is not video, but the audio plays correctly. My .mp3 file shows with the regular audo player bar but doesn't stop buffering and never plays.
2) Can I include the rating stars? I have the column in my library and tried to use it in the template, but nothing appears.
we have now updated the „Podcast” web part to allow it to also play “WAV” files. Please note that this requires the user to have installed the Apple QuickTime plug-in (which is able to play WAV files).
If this restriction does not cause a problem, then you might consider to update the web part.
The web part currently has "read-only" support for rating stars if you use the "Field Template" setting and include the "Rating (0-5)" list column.
|Thank you Jeurg!|
I discovered that the problem with the .mp3 file was on my end. I tried a different file and it worked perfectly. So no need to use the .wav file format at this point, but it's nice to know those now work. I decided to use the Audio Player web part and it's perfect.
|Hi, I am getting the podcast feed with no problems (form iTunes and RSS sources), but the players are not shown. Instead I get a white box with a red cross. Can you sugegst how I may fix this please? Many thanks.|
|Actually, just checked Chrome and the players are there. IE seems to be my problem.|
the web part uses one of the following players depending on the media type:
- QuickTime Player (MOV, MP4)
- Flash (MP3, FLV)
- Windows Media Player (WAV, WMA)
- Silverlight Player (if set via the web part’s properties)
Could it be that your feed for example delivers MP4, but your Internet Explorer does not have the QuickTime plug-in installed ?
|Thanks for the reply Juerg.|
They are streams from a converted iTunes subscription - but the players are still not showing - but only in IE 9! Seems okay in Chrome.
I have tried with mp3 in a document library, with teh same problem occuring.
It might be the school I'm in has a problem with flash??
|We have followed all the steps and are receiving "SharePoint List not found." We have troubleshooted have the page and library under same site. What kind of Library should we be using?|
can you temporarily enter
into the web part’s „Header“ setting and then send us the additional output generated by the web part to email@example.com for analysis ?
your Sharepoint web frontend server is currently not allowed to reach out to the internet.
Can you thus change the „trust level” line in your Sharepoint application0s web.config file from
<trust level="WSS_Medium" originUrl="" />
<trust level="WSS_Medium" originUrl=".*" />
eg. insert the “.*” characters into the originUrl attribute
This should allow Web Service calls to any destination.
|I just installed and we are trying it on mobile devices using safari. Iphone7Plus I do not see the play button. Does this work on all mobile devices?|
we have now added support for mobile devices (as iPhone, iPad, IPod and Android).
Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract the WSP file and then update the web part solution.
|It would be great to have a ratings feature at the end of the podcast. |
please embed the „[rating]“ placeholder into the web part’s “Field Template” setting as illustrated in the below example:
