Moving just media - what URL do I link to it with?
« on: April 19, 2011, 07:58:51 pm »
I have a Podcast running and have found the hosting to be a bit flakey. So I've migrated most of the media to Blubrry. Now I want to update my RSS feed which is stored here:
http://NZTechPodcast.com/audio/nztechpodcast.xml

The problem is I don't know the URLs of the media hosting on Blubrry.com - how can I find this out so I can update my RSS feed?

There was a typo with Mikes example, I've fixed it. If you go into the Stats system on Blubrry.com, there is a "getting started" link at the top. Click this link, there is an example how to create the redirect manually, a wizard which lets you paste in your media URL, and the output is your final redirect URL, and the last section has instructions specific for the popular Podcasting plugins.

Thanks - I managed to figure out the URL in the end.

Can I assume using this URL format also means the stats are recorded? (rather than the usual redirect method)

Can someone confirm that the below URL also records stats in the same way the redirected URLs do?

I just want to be sure I've set things up correctly.

The URL you have is WRONG.

If you go into the stats system, go to the "Getting Started" link. Then go to the second section that will take a URL and generate your media URL. Copy the complete URL to your media file (e.g. http://www.exmaple.com/path/to/media.mp3) and paste it into the appropriate box, and the output below will have the complete URL with the redirect implemented.
