Download the Plugin
Login to my.smartpodcastplayer.com with the email address you used to purchase your player (you probably created an account when you purchased; if not, create one now). You can download the plugin again under the My Account dropdown (orange circle). You can retrieve your license keys under the License Keys section in the left-hand menu (red circle).
Install the Plugin
- Log in your WordPress dashboard. In most cases, you will this by adding /wp-login.ph
- to your website’s url.
- In the left-hand menu, click on Plugins. This will take you to your plugins menu, where you’ll see all of your previously installed plugins.

Finally, you will need to add your license key to the Settings menu.
- Click on the Go to Settings button, or navigate by going to Settings --> Smart Podcast Player.
