    Hi there

    Is there any way that I can use Youtube links instead of permalinks when adding videos for my podcasting channel?

    Hope that makes sense.

    Thanks so much!

    :)

    Unfortunately no. YouTube links are links to web pages with the player embedded. or they are links to the embed themselves. iTunes and all other podcasting applications need a link to the media file, e.g. example.com/path/to/file.mp4.

    Learn more about video formats here: http://create.blubrry.com/manual/creating-podcast-media/video/video-formats/

    The smart video podcasters will create and distribute their podcast via mp4, and also submit their podcast episodes to YouTube. Just being on iTunes or just being on YouTube narrows your audience.
