What defines a Podcast?


#1

Does anyone know what defines a track as a Podcast to iTunes? I have several that I've updated using MP3Tag that are no longer recognized in my library as Podcasts. I still see them, but they don't show up in the special folder.

I've loaded both up in MP3Tag, but I don't see a special tag.

Yes it's a special "tag" that is not yet supported.


#3

Do you know if there are any plans to support it?


#4

I don't know but I'm sure he will implement it.

Logan,

can you please post a link to a MP4 podcast feed so I can have a look at the tag structure?

Thanks!

Logan,

the latest Development Build has support for the ITUNESPODCAST tag field (for both MP3 and MP4).

Best regards,

There are actually 4 tags that you need to adjust:
ITUNESPODCAST
ITUNESPODCASTDESC
ITUNESPODCASTID
ITUNESPODCASTURL

I believe that they use the last 2 to determine which podcast group to file
the program under. You need to be subscribed to the URL in the last for
this to show up in the proper place.
