Yahoo Podcasting Directory won't Accept WordPress Feed URL (4 posts)

    I'm trying to post my podcast at Yahoo's beta Podcast Directory at http://podcasts.yahoo.com/publish.
    In the top right corner is a place to add my RSS URL, so I put in : http://www.smarterbytheminute.com/?feed=rss2 and Yahoo responds with "System error. Please try again" with no explanation of any kind. I looked for some kind of link to ask Yahoo support about this but apparently they don't want to be contacted. So I'm asking here if anyone knows a solution to this.
    Of course I do realize that the Yahoo site is beta and the problem could be a coding issue on their part, but I wanted to ask here to make sure I'm not doing something wrong with my feed link.
    Thanks for your help!!

    This is happening to me as well and usefully there is no place to go for help in the form of an actual person so if anyone solves this problem I too would be most grateful. Otherwise I'm guessing its a coding issue. I host my podcasts on Libsyn.com and my rss feed is :
    http://nubricks.libsyn.com/rss
    Add it to Yahoo Podcast directory as per chap above and same System error.

    Nothing wrong with either of those feeds. I'd say Yahoo is broken.

    Running into the same thing here with my new podcast, Simply Digital (http://simplydigital.libsyn.com/rss).

    Frustrating.
