I have a podcast that I have been running for years with little to no issue.  Two weeks ago the podcast just stopped playing in mobile Safari.  It gives a play icon with a circle slash through it, like no plug-in.  I didn't change anything with how I build the podcasts.  I create them in Garageband share them with iTunes and use a content manager to upload them to my site.  Can someone help me find a possible reason why this could be happening?

This is the location of the first thet went awry: http://shulamite.com/listen/living-stones/

Thank you

I figured it out!! When transfring your podcast from Garageband using the share with iTunes share option you can't select an audio setting higher than an Music Podcast.  Higher qualities fail to load the plug in giving you the error.I don't know how that got changed in the settings but that was it. Thank you, hope this helps others with same issue.John

    Your iTunes Store page is at http://itunes.apple.com/gb/podcast/shulamite-podcast/id209503372

     

    Your feed is at http://feeds.feedburner.com/ShulamitePodcast

     

    It all works fine on a Mac: I don't have an iOS device so I'm afraid I can't comment there, except that you're not the first in recent weeks to complain of the same thing, so something odd may be going on.

     

    There are two minor errors in the feed, though I wouldn't have expected them to cause this problem: you have no 'itunes:duration' tags which should carry the duration of each episode, and within the 'enclosure' tags the 'length' attribute is empty - it should show the file size in bytes.

     

    You could ask in the iPhone or iPad forums as appropriate, where someone may be able at least to check whether the problem arises for them.
