Our sermon player can be used to embed a single sermon or a series of sermons on your church’s website.
This is the simplest form of the sermon player and is most useful for sharing a single service. It will provide your visitors with a simple interface for playing the sermon that goes along with a service and a button to download it if they would like to listen to it in their preferred audio app.
To use it go the service you would like to use and click the Get embed code button under the Sermon Player heading. This will copy the embed code to your clipboard. Then you can paste the embed code into your website and we’ll handle the rest.
The sermon player has a series mode which makes it easier to share new sermons in a series. It works similarly to the service mode, but it will also display a list of sermons in the series with the newest at the top. Every time you upload a new sermon to a service in the series the sermon player will update automatically. That means you don’t have to do any extra work on your website to get new sermons on their quickly.
To add a series to your church’s website go to the series you would like to use and click the Get embed code button under the Sermon Player heading. This will copy the embed code to your clipboard. Then you can paste the embed code into your website and we’ll handle the rest.
How it works
You can safely skip this section if technical details don’t interest you.
The sermon player will do its best to make it easy for visitors to listen to sermons right from the browser. It will attempt to keep track of how much of a sermon you have listened to so that if you are interrupted or close the window accidentally it will resume where you left off. It is possible for this feature to be blocked if your visitors have third party cookies disabled, but they will still be able to listen to the sermons.
The sermon player is an iframe to ensure that it doesn’t interfere with the pages you embed it on. And, if you’re interested in taking over stylistic control of the outside of it, the iframe is wrapped inside a div with the class
swerv-sermon-player applied to it.
