I am redirecting my podcast Vox in a Box from libsyn to feedburner.  When I manually load in itunes it works, but adding the normal way has an error. 

 

I added

<itunes:new-feed-url>

http://feeds.feedburner.com/voxboxcomics/meiR

</itunes:new-feed-url>

to my libsyn feed and the new feed of http://feeds.feedburner.com/voxboxcomics/meiR  shows up in Itunes but now the show will not download the new feed, but returns an error message. (and unknown error occured -50)

 

When I try manually suscribing to http://feeds.feedburner.com/voxboxcomics/meiR Itunes is able to access it no problem.

 

Please let me know if I have made an error in redirecting this feed.  I appreciate your help!

Everything's working OK for me. iTunes is using the feed at

 

http://feeds.feedburner.com/voxboxcomics/meiR

 

and I downloaded a couple of episodes without problems. If you are seeing an error I can't explain that  - perhaps there is some techincal problem on your comuter: I don't know whether Windows has any problems with podcasrs but it's fine on a Mac.

    Roger, 

    Thank you so much for your quick response!  After you let me know I waited a while and tried again and it worked fine.

     

    A quick follow up question:  My purpose in changing my RSS feed is so it will come through Feedburner and not directly from Libsyn.  I wish to start a new podcast soon and don't want the second being pulled because I used the libsyn rss feed.

     

    Will Itunes eventually JUST pull the http://feeds.feedburner.com/voxboxcomics/meiR feed after it has been redirected for a while?  If so, how do I make it so the feedburner feed is the only feed Itunes looks for and not a redirect from the libsyn feed?

     

    Thank you!

    iTunes will use the feed you submit. It won't redirect unless you specifically used the 'itunes:new-feed-url' tag and when you do subscribers will see the change immediately; it will probably take the Store a couple of days to catch up. If you want to use the Feedburner feed then subnit that URL in the first place.

    Thank you, Roger.  My problem is I didn't know about Feedburner when I first started podcasting a year ago.  I wish I did, I wouldn't have had to go through all of this!   Thanks for your help.
