iTunes: Soundcloud RSS feed not updating with latest episode


Hi,

The latest episode of my podcast is not updating to the soundcloud RSS feed (which I send to feedburner). Hence the latest episode of my podcast is not showing up in ITunes.
http://feeds.soundcloud.com/users/soundcloud:users:152766907/sounds.rss

I would appreciate any help you could provide on this.

Also on a side note I tried uploading the latest episode twice. The 1st time I uploaded it there was some kind of error because soundcloud told me the file was uploaded, but the episode did not show up. So I tried uploading it again and the 2nd time it worked, but it told me the file name already existed, even though it isn't showing up at all. Meaning I think there is a file episode that was uploaded but is competely "hidden", which could be causing the RSS problems.

Ronny.

Hi Ron,

It looks like you might have forgotten to enable your track's permission to be included in your RSS feed. Head over to your track's Permission tab to change this or enable it by default from your Settings under the 'Content' tab.

To learn how to do this, have a look at this article from our Help Center: http://podcasting.help.soundcloud.com/customer/portal/articles/2161801-adding-tracks-to-your-rss-feed

This should help!

Ok as an update the duplicate episode described above has appeared on soundcloud. I'm deleting the duplicate episode now. However the RSS feed still has not been updated.

Hey there Ron,

There is: https://soundcloud.com/settings/content - please note that we recently had an issue on our end where - regardless of this setting - tracks wouldn't land in your RSS feed. However, this should now be all sorted and back to normal.

Cheers

Hi Mathis

Thanks for the response. The original issue was actually just my own fault for not selecting "publish to RSS".

Is there a way to enable this option by default?

Thanks.
Ronny.

What feed URL are you using for your podcast in iTunes?
My podcast "PreMarket Prep" gets pulled to iTunes from the Soundcloud RSS. But for some reason on iTunes I keep getting the "episode unavailable" error that says "this episode is temporarily unavailable." I've gone through the through to make sure the RSS is correct and I can't seem to find the problem. Hopefully you can help.

I'm not sure whether this is an iTunes problem or SoundCloud problem, but Episode 5 of our podcast isn't appearing on iTunes after a full day (usually only takes a few hours).

Our SoundCloud: https://soundcloud.com/gamexplain

Any idea why this might be?

Hi! My latest podcast (The called according to His purpose part 3--ep 12) is showing in Soundcloud--just not in Stitcher-- and it's been over 24 hours. Nothing has changed RSS-wise, and all my others loaded perfectly when I set up the account last week. Any thoughts?

Thank you!

For whatever reason our last two episodes (22 and 23) have not appeared on iTunes when viewing from a computer, but they show up with no issues on iPhone in the podcasts app. why is this? None of our settings have changed.

I have released a new track and it should be posting in the RSS Feed and it is not.
Normally, the podcast appears quickly, but it is not working.

Searching my show in iTunes it doesn't display the latest episode of the podcast. It does show up in my subscribed feed on iTunes. The latest podcast has been available for over a week. I have made sure the 'rss feed' for the whole podcast and individual episodes are available
I am having this issue also, include in RSS feed is ticked by deafult.
I am having the same exact problem as the above reply. It has been 3 days and my latest episode has not shown up on either iTunes or Stitcher. The RSS field is checked by default and still nothing. Is this an issue on SoundClouds end?
We are having the same issue:

Feed at http://feeds.soundcloud.com/users/soundcloud:users:184764243/sounds.rss

You can see example of omission at http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/the-edtech-hour

The latest Episode 10 has not been received at TuneIn, Stitcher or iTunes. No previous issues and include in RSS is ticked and double checked.

Hello,

Our episodes appear to be uploading to iTunes okay. However our podcast network we did go through a name change recently. It took a couple days but the name finally changed on iTunes. However the cover image and URL on iTunes still reflects our old podcast name. Do you know how long it takes for updates made to our Soundcloud account to take effect on iTunes?

(This should be the Phantom Podcast Network)

Thanks!

I have exactly the same issue. latest episode did not appear in feed burner thus did not go out anywhere. What now?

Podcast: https://soundcloud.com/coffeeis
RSS: http://feeds.feedburner.com/coffeeisme
We have recently encountered this problem with our podcast. Our episodes normally upload on iTunes and Stitcher almost instantly after uploading them to Soundcloud, but our last few episodes have yet to show up on either. I have all the episodes set to show in RSS Feed but they still are no where to be seen on iTunes or Stitcher. Any help as soon as possible would be great! Thank you!
