Please post the URL of the Store page as well as the feed when you have a question, otherwise I have to do some detective work.
Your third URL is a web page, not a feed - the feed is at http://phillipnaessens.wordpress.com/feed/
In all three cases the most recent episode does not have an 'enclosure' URL containing the URL of a media file. Indeed in each caase no media file is referenced at all in the episode. iTunes does not display episodes which don't have an enclosure tag with a media file URL.
That is another of these file sharing sites. The URL brings up a web page from which you can download the file. This won't work; you must provide a URL directly to the media file, which needs to be hosted on an ordinary web server, not a file sharing site or one with an embedded player. The previous episode has its file at
and this works.
You are correct and I thank you for all your help but here's the funny thing about that "file sharing site"; I've used it over 20 times including the page you just referenced
and here on Friday
and on Thursday
I can go on and on.....this has me scratching my head because the issue, like I said in my opening question, began this weekend......any ideas as to why it has always worked until now?
Thanks again for all your help!
Taking the first episode you list, the media file URL in the feed is
This redirects to
which does work.
The URL you gave in your earlier post doesn't, as it leads to an archive.org web page; that page has a link to an MP3 file -
This leads to
which does work, so presumably it's that you should be using.
I would normally be suspicious about something like archive.org but if you use the direct URL it does seem to be working OK: and surprisingly it appears to handle 'byte range requests' (the method used by iPhones which is now mandatory for new podcasts).
