  • Will podcast conform to these new requirements?

    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 the server hosting the image must allow HTTP HEAD requests. 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.

    iTunes image:
    podPress allows you to add such images as iTunes images to the feed. (and the upcoming version is going to have an updated help text.)

    Byte Range Requests:
    As far as I know, this is a matter of your server configuration and I believe that this is nothing a WP plugin could help you with. You should ask your hosting or prospective hosting provider whether they support this technique.

    Thank you, this is very helpful.


    Do you know when the new version will be ready?
