Need to choose WordPress plug-in for an audio and video podcast

Need to choose WordPress plug-in for an audio and video podcast

But I am still not so knowledgeable about distribution of the podcast

Here is a list of Theme Forest themes I may choose from.

https://themeforest.net/tags/podcast

Suggestions?

If I use a podcast theme on my WordPress site, what is missing from my hosting requirements? Are the videos stored on YouTube? And the MP3's stored on my website?

Does the theme contain the interface to iTunes and other podcast distribution outlets?

I am pretty new at this and do not yet have a feeling for what is what.

Thanks.

So I will need to scan the plug in directory, but you might not need one. You can store audio and video and embedded (using html) a video or audio player in any post.

I do this on my wife's website.

I'll grab a code snippet tomorrow as an example.

You can host the files off the server, and use a link to embed the content into your post as well. YouTube tends to be easy as well.

Here is a post on how to embed YouTube videos into a post: https://www.wpmadesimple.org/supplementary-guides/youtube-video/

Similar Google searches for "how to embeded an mp3 into a Wordpress post" will give great instructions as well.

Wordpress is so widely used, you can find an article in how to do just about anything.

This too I can walk you through.
