I am unable to submit a podcast to iTunes. When I test the URL by going to the Subscribe to Podcast link under the iTunes Advanced setting I get this message: "(my link) does not seem to be a valid Podcast URL." The link goes directly to the audio file, so I know it is a valid link. Does anyone know what determines a valid Podcast link for iTunes (i.e., length of the URL, format, use of special characters, etc.)?

In advance, thank you for any help.

Its a long shot but check the URL that you entered.

Does it have a space either at the beginning or end. This can invalidate the link.

Thank you. I checked but there aren't any extra spaces. Not sure what I had done wrong before, but this time when I entered the URL into Subscribe to Podcast the link was accepted. But when I then entered it into Submit a Podcast this message came up: "The feed has no episodes." If I go directly to the link from my browser, I am taken to the file and can play it.
