itunes submission problems
« on: June 05, 2012, 11:01:14 AM »
Ok so i have recorded the Podcasts and uploaded them to a folder in my public_html folder in my file manager through FTP

So i take the link to the file put it in my podpress and i post the new podcast.  works fine the show streams well.

When i go to "submit podcast page" on itunes  (http://www.apple.com/itunes/podcasts/specs.html#submitting)
it turns me onto itunes application and has a
"SUBMIT PODCAST TO ITUNES DIRECTORY"
and has a line saying "Podcast Feed URL" so i copy and past the same URL that i use for podpress

and when i do that i click submit and then EVERY TIME it says "SESSION TIMED OUT"


What am i doing wrong?

You are using Feedburner and only the podcast category right?

Hey GNP.  Had the exact same problem for the last 3 months clicking the link on PowerPress.  Juuuust solved it this week and finally got in the directory. 

Maybe this will work for you.  I was timing out every time I accessed the submission page through exterior links like PowerPress and the Apple Support page like you mentioned.

Finally, I logged into iTunes manually.  Clicked "iTunes Store."  Clicked "Podcasts" between Books and iTunes U.  Then clicked the "Submit a Podcast" link.  Seemed like the exact same page, but for whatever reason it worked.  Submitted and approved within 24 hours.  Also, like Fjorgynn mentioned, I used my actual websites feed, not my feedburner feed. 

Hopefully that will square you away.

im getting a "difficulty reading your feed" error 404

I linked directly do the file manager location where i uploaded the podcasts to directly and where the location of the actual file that my podpress reads and works from.  Any suggestions?

First of all you should use Feedburner. Then it's only the podcast category-rss you should add to feedburner.
