Podcasts are not showing up in any of my music blogs

    Podcasts (widgets) and other playlists (in Posts) that contain more than one movement are simply gone. This has been the case for the last few days. Until then, audio has been fine since switching to HTML5.
    Single audio files are working fine.

    How soon before we get the audio back?

    The blog I need help with is jhlisten.wordpress.com.

    Hi J.H.,

    I looked at your Audio Widget, and I see that there are quite a few mp3s that were added. Can you try creating a playlist and embed that to your sidebar with the music player widget? :

    Let me know how that works out!

    Grace,

    Thanks for getting back.

    I tried creating a playlist using the music player widget, with the same result. It will play one .mp3 file and only one. Anymore than one and the widget goes blank on the blog. This is also true for the embedded code on a Post. There is one example (five movements) on the post you looked at.

    Everything has worked fine on all of my music blogs until a week ago. Everyone of my blogs is showing the same problem. And it is the same using other search engines.

    It is critical that I find a solution, so I appreciate your help.

    Any other suggestions?

    J. H.

    Hi John,

    I found that you did not purchase the Space Upgrade so you cannot create a playlist. Sorry about that!

    But you can fix this by separating the music files like so:

    [audio http://www.johnholland.ws/mp3s/FranklinMixNo.3.mp3 ]

    Cheers!

    Grace,

    You certainly can compound a list of files by separating them, as you say. But hey stop completely after each piece or movement ends in the playlist. The whole idea of a playlist (podcast) is to play the entire list of pieces without stopping until the end. Seeing all of the players on the playlists separately both on the blog and on the sidebar is also very unattractive.

    The playlist function worked fine until a week ago. How do we get back to where it was? Initially, it was a bit of a problem changing the audio from Flash to HTML5 a wile back because the new audio playlist continued to loop. But at least it played the files continuously.

    Hope we can resolve this.

    Thanks.

    J. H.
