Hi all, I'm trying to setup my first podcast, but when I test the feed in tunes (subscribe to podcast), it's not picking up the link for the audio nor the image. I pasted the links into my browser and both open up without a problem.

 

Can someone maybe take a look and see if there's an error in my feed? I would really appreciate it.

I checked it out in Feed Validator and it says its valid...

 

Thank you in advance.

    The audio file is at

     

    http://www.teenjazzradio.com/podcasts/tjr003.m4a

     

    This plays in Safari (though it was quite slow to start) but neither iTunes when subscribing nor FireFox would play it. An attempt to open it in FireFox said it ws trying to connect to www.shannon-kennedy.com

     

    The image URL is

    This wouldn't open in Safari but from the 'Source' view in FireFox I got an HTML page with an iFrame.

     

    So something very messy is going on at your server and you will need to take this up with the people running it.

    That solved my problem! I have several websites within my primary site. When I changed the location to reflect that, everything downloaded beautifully. Thank you!

    This has certainly made it work, and the good news is that your server does appear to be handling 'byte-range requests' (the method used by iPhones and a requirement for acceptance in the Store). The only other thing is that it's all downloading awfully slowly - some seconds for the image. This shouldn't actually prevent you being accepted, though anyone playing the episode in the Store may have quite a long wait before anything happens.
