  1. I just upgraded to your 2.0 version, and tried to watch your video. Thanks for the good instructions, but your CEO came across as an arrogant twit. Some people believe in video, some in audio. If you choose to belittle your users by implying that those who perform audio podcasts are left in the stone age and are the dinosaurs of the world, then those users may learn from your code and create their own plugins leaving your market share in the dust.

    1. We’re sorry you got that impression. We have added new audio features as well including new player support for m4a and ogg audio.

  2. Having created 653 episodes of my show with the first 400 being Audio only I understand the value of Audio and still create an Audio version of my Podcast today. I also create a video version of my show that has expanded my audience.

    The 80% of the folks who were subscribed via audio still are, the 20% that subscribe to the video are new subscribers. We do not discount the value of Audio but encourage podcasters to consider it.
