my feed not an RSS?
« on: October 22, 2018, 02:19:09 am »
Hi All,
Im trying to migrate a podcast to be hosted in blubrry and run by powerpress, but podbase and other validators say that it isnt XML nor a RSS feed.

Completely lost there, no idea what to do, and would love some help. please. help :-\

Your post here:
https://flashcast.thepodcastboss.com/2018/10/19/failure-and-risk-management/

Is creating an XML parsing error in the feed due to the media file URL here:
https://media.blubrry.com/flashcast_by_pdb/media.whooshkaa.com/podcasts/4647/episodes/bdc7fa-flashcast-ep-05-failure-and-risk-management.mp3?id=287510&ha=2580

The media file does technically work when the file URL is loaded in a web browser. But there's something about the URL structure that's breaking the podcast feed. I'd recommend shortening the filename and having it end only in .mp3 without the ?id= stuff after it.
