Once i upload my Mp4 / Mp3 file to my FTP account [FileZilla], where do I go to find the address to Copy over to my Wordpress Site > blubrry app?

The problem I'm having is that once the file is uploaded and I copy/paste the address I think is right, I get a Time Playback Time of 0:00:00 and there is no playback possible when i upload the blog with the podcast file in it...

Is there perhaps something else i'm doing wrong?

Your podcast file will be wherever you uploaded it to..

So if you upload it to a folder called /media/ on your website, then the media URL (address) will be something like this:  http://example.com/media/MyGreatPodcast.mp3 

Do not use FTP:// in the address, you http:// always for media files.

Thanks for the reply Mike.

and that's my problem. when i upload it then right click the file to get the address i get this...
ftp://adroitso@66.111.111.111/public_html/Podcasts/Make_You_Feel.mp3

why am i not getting "http://...... ", am I uploading it to the wrong folder?

No, that FTP Address is just the backend address.   The live address is http://yourdomain.com/Podcasts/MediaFile.mp3 (whatever you named it)  I emailed you about this also.
