I have several podcasts that I subscribe to that always work.  Today, however, the new ones are gray and cannot be played.  The ones that I downloaded before today are still black and can be played.  Please help.

    Without knowing what podcasts you are talking about it's really not possible to make any sensible comment. Perhaps you would like to post a couple of URLs - I can't promise to be able to answer if you do this, but I can guarantee not to be able to if you don't .

    Your episode will not play when subscribing. The media file's URL is

     

    http://www.johnnycash.com/media/podcast/jcradio_show238 11.mp3

     

    There is a space in this: spaces are not allowed in a URL and though browsers will substitute the appropriate code when requesting the file, iTunes won't. You need to rename the file removing the space and amend the feed accordinglly, or replace the space in the feed with the code %20 - renaming the file would be preferable.

    Thanks! I'll try that and see if that fixes the issue
