I'm trying to set up a podcast service at present.
This is just a 'spare time' task - so I wanted a quick, easy way to do it.
To get this working:
- I've ripped (with owner permission) some YouTube content across to MP3 and hosted this content on Azure Blob Storage.
- I've posted blog posts - with linked mp3 content - inside a Blogger website.
- I've registered the RSS feed with iTunes
This all seems to be working OK - http://dotnetmobilepodcast.blogspot.co.uk/
However, when it comes to a couple of final touches, then I'm hitting problems.
I would like to add iTunes metadata to the RSS feed.
However, I can't find any way to do this inside the Blogger system.
To workaround this I've tried using FeedBurner with its StreamCast plugin.
However, the output from FeedBurner doesn't seem to be accepted by iTunes - e.g. http://feeds.feedburner.com/MobileAppCSharpPodcasts leads to this very unhelpful 11111 message:
Is there any other way I can get this iTunes metadata content into the Blogger RSS feed - e.g. maybe an alternative service or a Yahoo! Pipe?
Showing the MP3 files in the Blog
I'm trying to work out how to automatically display the linked enclosures inside the blog posts - do the blogger Dynamic Views don't seem to have any way of doing this? I've found the HTML in those views very difficult to follow.
If necessary I can workaround this using manual entries into each blog post... but I'd prefer to do this programatically if I can.
