Hi Georg & Ralf, it has been 8 days from the release, but i still can’t get show #69 as a podcast from the itunes store … Best, Florian
we apologize for the inconvinience with our iTunes channels. Reason is that BlipTV (who is creating our iTunes RSS podcast feeds) will remove us from their portal, as we do not create enough advertising revenue for them. Sad but true. The iTunes channels will disapear in 2 weeks and we are already unable to upload new episodes on BlipTV.
We are working on a solution and will for sure provide new iTunes podcast channels.
Hi Georg, thx for your feedback (oops 3:42 am!). Do I get that right: BlipTV is doing the file hosting of the videofiles? Because creating and publishing an RSS-Feed is no rocket science since iT 10.6. You could do that via the iTs. admittedly you would have to find a hoster for the video files, but many hosting packages already have a traffic flatrate … Best, Florian
no worries about the time – I’m currently in Califonia ;-) My plan is to create our own iTunes compatible RSS feeds and to be independed from others. Our main video host is VIMEO and they do deliver excellent service, applications and video quality (but no support for iTunes compatible formats).
You can also find most of our episodes on our (secondary) Youtube channel:
I will work on a solution for iTunes and let you know.
Best regards and thanks for watching :-)
