A Note About Show Settings
The information used in the Player.FM app is based on the information you have entered in your show settings. If you have not filled in your show settings, please see our show settings tutorial. If you try to fill in the Player.FM destination without filling in your show settings you will receive an error.
There are a few configurations that can be set for your Player.FM destination, we will outline these below.
Destination Name: The name of the destination is for your organizational purposes only and is only ever seen inside the Libsyn dashboard. In most cases, this should be left at its default.
Feed Extension: The Feed Extension generates the last part of the Player.FM feed URL. In most cases, this should be left as its default setting.
Approving Show Submission into Player.FM
Once you are ready, check the box for Approve. This checkbox, upon saving the destination, will approve the destination for submission to the Player.FM directory. Click Save.
Advanced Options and Overrides
There are additional overrides that can be made to your Player.FM destination. These are not necessary for submission or general operation, but exist for those power users who want to customize their entry.
These are found under Advanced Options.
Show Title (Override): Entering a title here will override the show title set in show settings for this destination.
Author (Override): Entering an Author here will override the author set in show settings for this destination.
Description (Override): Entering a Description here will override the description set in show settings for this destination.
Use Show Image for Episodes: If episode artwork has been uploaded to individual episodes and you now wish Player.FM to only utilize the show artwork instead of the episode art, check this box.
Episode/Post Limit: This setting limits the number of episodes you send to the Player.FM feed. By default, the Player.FM feed will show the newest 100 episodes. Setting the limit to No Limit will allow all episodes to be available in your Player.FM feed.
Use Plain Text Description: This will remove formatting and code from all episode descriptions in the Player.FM feed.
Disable Dynamic Advertising: If your show has dynamic advertising enabled, checking this option would turn it off for the Player.FM feed.
Redirect Feed to this Web Address: If you ever decide to leave Libsyn and move to a different platform, you would enter the feed URL of you new platform in this field.
Extra RSS Tags: If you have additional RSS tags you wish to enter into your feed, enter them here. Please note that additional tags you enter may invalidate your feed, so validating your RSS feed after entry is imperative.
