What are the future plans for this player?

We see this player becoming a more established way of sharing audio content. Podcast players are great, the overhead of creating an RSS feed for every collection, means that it is not always easy to share a group of audio files. We believe this player will bring people back to the elements of WordPress and blogging and allow people to share audio within a page.

Why would you use it?

Because you want to provide a clean interface for folks to listen to whatever collection of audio you’ve curated, whether it is a podcast season or a few podcast episodes you want to share.
