I love your WP plugin....Awesome.
I have a member pass-worded podcast using the WordPress Blubrry plugin on my s2member website. I am protecting the podcast using Remote Auth / Podcasting Remote Header Authorization in s2member within WordPress.
This works great within iTunes on computer laptops and desktops both mac & windows. When you subscribe an iTunes sign-in / password window pops up and the request for sign-in is working great as it is supposed to. BUT will not request authorization in Android podcast apps Find URL, will subscribe and see podcasts but have no way of authorizing sign-in using dialogue and iPad iTunes cant even find URL.
I am approaching the process as follows and would appreciate help in solving problem for all podcast players android apple etc.
The files are hosted in my protected s2member-files folder. the url with remote authorization request is included in mob re-write. I am entering into the Wordpress Blubrry URL field interface the following as a Mob Re-write:http://erichschiffmann.com/wp-content/plugins/s2member-files/s2member-file-remote/s2member-file-inline/s2member-skip-confirmation-n/s2member-file-storage-local/access-s2member-level0/2012/11/2012-11-15a_be-relaxed-Talk-vc.mp3
the subscribe URL is http://erichschiffmann.com/podcast
To reiterate the podcast works perfectly in iTunes on Computers BUT won’t work (authorization / ask for password etc) on iPad, Android players including the Google Listen App. etc.
In Google Listen for example, It says it cannot find File although it sees podcast and title of the 2 podcasts that are published once i subscribe. In the iPad it just can’t find the podcast to subscribe. How do i get the Android players to ask for password/authorization like it currently works in iTunes when subscribing to podcast on advance tab? How do i get the podcast to work within iTunes on iPad & iPhone.
Also this is my first podcast feed and i was wondering if the http://erichschiffmann.com/podcast
I have noticed that many feeds have names like:
I currently have the feed named http://erichschiffmann.com/podcast
should i rename feed to http://erichschiffmann.com/podcast/feed/
or is this not important?
(a side note = not that important but be aware with the mob rewrite URL blubrry interface in WP Post will not actually give a blubrry verify but podcast does work fine if i just save even though i don't get verification in post blubrry URL when pressing verify button).
Any help to solve the iTunes/podcast player issue would be appreciated. Also any advice on the naming concern for feed or any other suggestions would be appreciated. I feel like i have tried everything i can think of and would like to crowd source the answer with your help.
