Many of you prefer to download the podcast, but for those who prefer to use our web podcast player (green play buttons at the right top corner), from now on it works a tiny bit different, because Google changed policies for autoplay
It's not allowed any more to play a sound or video with sound when opening a webpage without any user gesture. In principle I agree with that, because also I am very annoyed if sounds come from my speakers when I don't expect it, and often also don't want it.
The problem is that my web podcast player opens a webpage in a new window when you click on the play button. I want to keep it this way, because now the podcast keeps playing while you are browsing the TalentCast website or other websites, until you close the webplayer or press the pause button.
From now on, when you click on one of the play buttons, you have to click on the play button of the audio player in our webplayer too, to start listening to our podcast. A bit annoying, I understand, but I don't have a better solution right now.
I am not happy with this policy change of Google, although I understand why they do this. I hope to come with a better solution for this issue in near future. If you have one, welcome to contact me
