    Is it okay for for users to stream MP3s (original content of course) via the flash app that the podcast uses or is that restricted to the podcast only? Just curious as I'll have some music to share soon and am hoping to avoid linking to uploads on another site.

    I've done it before and other people have, I think I uploaded the track via Dropbox and used the direct URL. I can't remember.

    I was just planning to "quote" the temptalk post and copy the code from there with changes to the links

    That's where I got what I posted from, guess that'd just staff. Quote prowler_'s post here to see how to do it for regular users.

    i was just using the BBCode so i wouldn't have to use HTML, but after the relaunch i can't remember what the BBCode was, can you post it again?

    Along with the forum upgrade, my notes in the User CP disappeared so I've lost the code for it, sorry.

    Fake edit: BBCode has changed and so has the player
    It's now
    Code:

    wow, that player is ugly, lol

    i eventually got it working, had to host the flashplayer elsewhere (a newer version that actually shows the id3 tags ^_^) and use html
