iTunes now requires all new podcasts to have an image with minimum requirements of a 1400x1400 jpg/png image under 500kb's.

Uploading an image using FFA in this size will be regarded as an error on the feed.

FFA is incorrect.

Dear Podcast Provider,

New Cover Art Requirement
iTunes has been completely redesigned and there are new requirements for podcast cover art. To be eligible for featuring on iTunes Store, a podcast must have 1400 x 1400 pixel cover art in JPG or PNG format using RGB color space. The image URL must end in ".jpg", ".jpeg" or ".png" and [b]the server hosting the image must allow HTTP HEAD requests.[/b] See our technical spec for details.

Server Configuration Requirement
Podcast streaming playback on iTunes requires all hosting servers to enable Byte Range Requests. Please confirm your hosting servers have this functionality enabled. If you work with a third-party hosting service, please contact them to confirm this functionality is enabled on their servers.

155 Countries & More Than 100 Languages
iTunes Podcasts has launched in additional countries around the world. Note that reviews and ratings are unique to each country. Podcasts are published in more than 100 languages.

Regards,

The iTunes Podcast Team

FFA does NOT allow HEAD requests.
How do I manually enable this?

PROBLEM RESOLVED.

Apparently podtrac took a nose dive at some point and is no longer capable of surveying how many downloads and listens we receive. The redirect "itself" is whats crashing the feed.

On that note is there any good podcast tracking sites or survey sites that can give accurate stats of how many people download the podcast?

FOLLOW UP INFORMATION:

I am using version v2.0.3.1.
FeedValidator.org: Is currently saying my feed is invalid, however I haven't changed "anything". I've only updated the show as per normal.

Ok. So heres the deal.

Ive been using FEEDFORALL for about a year with ZERO complaints. Great program through and through. However as of last night the FEED itself stopped working... "KINDA".

Heres what I mean.

http://www.wrestlingsoup.com/ws/feed.xml

There is the feed. It can phsyically be read but for some reason whenever I try to manually click on the show it doesnt allow me to download it. This problem also affects iTunes, Zune, and a slew of other directories my show is in.

Heres the interesting part.

Podtrac the "redirection survey" service can read it AND play the files without any problem. I would have guessed that they store a "cache" of the shows but they do not and they stream directly from my feed and server.

So my question is "What happened"?
