Fully-featured podcasting for Joomla
4Podcast is a modern, integrated solution to add a podcast to your Joomla 3 and Joomla 4 website. It uses Joomla native custom fields for a seamless integration and ease of use.
It comes with a beautiful, responsive and accessible audio player that scores perfectly on Google Core Web Vitals speed specification and therefore helps your SEO.
Builds a standard RSS feed usable on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify and all major podcasting platforms.
4Podcast works the same on Joomla 3 & Joomla 4.
You write a blog but few of your customers are actually reading it?
Your newsletter is perfectly crafted but readership is low? Well, people don't read anymore!
Right, but in fact they do listen to podcasts.
We were faced with the same issue here at weeblr.com, and found no solution to start our podcast that would integrate with Joomla natively and easily.
So we made 4Podcast exactly for this purpose: run your own podcast. On your own website so that you own your content, not Apple or Google.
Publish the way you already know, by adding a category and some articles to your site.
It literally only takes a few minutes to be ready to publish your first episodes. No worries about your template or styling: again, these are just regular articles, they'll use your website existing design.
But many listeners prefer using their own podcasting app and platform. 4Podcast automatically creates a standard RSS feed. Register with Apple, Google, Spotify, etc and your podcast will be everywhere.
What else? 4Podcast automatically creates PodcastEpisode structured data records so that Google can best present your podcasts in search results.
And the audio player comes in 7 different color themes!
All your episodes, on your website
You own your episodes, not these large platforms, and you already know how to publish a podcast and make it look good:
- A podcast is a Joomla regular category. Show it as usual on the frontend with modules, tags, custom fields,...
- Each episode is an article in that category
- Your podcast automatically uses your website design, no integration work needed
Best-in-class audio player
- Fully responsive and accessible
- Optimized to avoid Cumulative Layout Shift penalty in Google Core Web Vitals speed measurements

Publish to all major platforms
4Podcasts generates a standard podcast RSS feed, accepted by all major platforms.
Register an account with Apple, Google or Spotify and make your podcast available to the world with a few clicks. All the technical work is already done, only one link to copy/paste.
