direct linking sermonaudio?

Hi,

I'm wondering what to do for a workaround on those church websites who have sermonaudio accounts. Some admins don't like the leg-work of uploading sermons twice (both to sermonaudio as well as sermonspeaker on their church website). I worry about the putting in a sermonaudio iframe to get around this, to embed the sermonspeaker sermon listing. My guess is that this will negatively impact Google SEO ranking.

Is there a way they could direct link a mp3 sermon file already uploaded in sermonaudio.com (so it can be used in sermnspeaker)? Or maybe another way around the negative SEO effects of embedding a 3rd party iframe in place of a local sermon listing (like sermonspeaker provides)?

Thanks!

I had a look at www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?SID=222151919482 which I think maybe one of your sermons. The download link requires a login, so that dowsn't work.
But if I use the player, there is a link to the file in the source code: mp3.sermonaudio.com/filearea/222151919482/222151919482.mp3

That one should work in SermonSpeaker.

Thanks so much Thomas! Looks like the link structure will work quite well...
I can't say how much I've appreciated your support for sermonspeaker...

Hmmm, I'm not sure that this is working...
Here's a sermon where I put the file link structure in from sermonaudio:
www.thereformedchurch.net/component/serm...at-we-sow?Itemid=101
It looks like the sermonaudio link triggers a proxy for the download... i.e. mp3.sermonaudio.com/filearea/422181939206/422181939206.mp3 downloads the sermon from media-proxy-4.sermonaudio.com .
I don't really understand what's going on, but does that mean it won't work?
Thanks!

Try prepending the file URL with "https://". Now it looks like it creates a relative link to your site and that fails.
The proxy should work I think, althought I never tried :)

Perfect, https:// at the beginning did the trick... Thanks so much again!

For anyone else wanting to use the same nomenclature/structure, here's an example that works in sermonspeaker:
https://mp3.sermonaudio.com/filearea/422181939206/422181939206.mp3

(where 422181939206 is the id of the sermon on sermonaudio)
