- Amazon S3 Secure Media Integration: This allows you to create a private player on your site that plays an MP3 file from Amazon S3, and the generated URL will only work from your web site. Which means they must come to your web site to listen to the episode. And the secure link to the file cannot be passed around. So this is very useful for “Bonus Content”, which can be used as an incentive for your listeners to come to your web site and consume the content, at which time you can present a lead magnet and try to sign them up to your list.
- Settings page now includes ability to choose player colors, social & custom buttons
- Fixes to resolve conflict with other WickedCoolPlugins.com plugins’ licensing code.
