So, we have these audio podcast episodes still in mp3 format and we would like to place them inside of a forum thread for people to listen to 'and' have an RSS feed so that all the episodes can be autoupdated onto our mobile app. The key, is getting the episodes to show up as 'flash players or etc.' in each thread. Anyone have a solution for this (bb code must be used, correct?)?

I've
That's for attachments: http://xenforo.com/community/threads/mp3-attachment-player.7903/

Probably you could build an custom bb code using the same flash player...
been all through that thread and I cannot get anything to work. I've uploaded the flash files but nothing tells me how to make those players show within my latest version of xenforo into a thread. Just trying to get files like this: http://video.clankillas.net/podcast/ClanKillasPodcast1.mp3 to show up as a flash player so that people can click on the play button and listen...;-(

Have you tried uploading them to Soundcloud and then using the Soundcloud BBcode? I know that's a bit roundabout.

I'd be willing to bet you could set up a BBcode for your site., but that is a bit beyond my abilities. (I tried and failed.)

That's a great idea. So SoundCloud will have an already publishable [BBcode] once I've uploaded?

Yup. I can give you the code. I think you gotta have the Custom BBCode manager addon, but I have Soundcloud on my board so I know it works and I can give you the specs when you are ready for them.

The part you can't read is as follows:

HTML:
<object height="81" width="100%">
<param name="movie" value="http://player.soundcloud.com/player.swf?url=http%3A%2F%2Fsoundcloud.com%2F{$id}&amp;g=bb"></param>
<param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param>
<embed allowscriptaccess="always" height="81" src="http://player.soundcloud.com/player.swf?url=http%3A%2F%2Fsoundcloud.com%2F{$id}&amp;g=bb" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="100%"></embed>
</object>

There is a proper bbcode for it as a media site where you can just copy the direct soundcloud link and it will auto update to the player. I would link to it but I'm on my iPad at the moment so it's a bit hard finding stuff!

Ok, I've added the addon and what happens to me is this:

1) I paste the soundcloud link into the thread (ex: http://snd.sc/GEXiDA)
2) It 'recognises' the code and post is made...BUT,
3) It keeps a url link in the post ;-(

Fellas, I need help (not hope), on this... Here's the link to what I have soo far:

I'm an idiot. On the Advanced tab, you have to check the box by:

Regular Expression Matching:
  • Use 'Match URLs' as PCRE regular expressions

Ok, I can't even find where the 'edit BB code...' area is? I was just there but this is all swamping me and I can't find where to look in order to check if the 'Match URLs as PCRE regular expressions' is selected or not ;-(
