    I have been trying to get blubrry powerpress to work with my web site. I'm trying to get it to work with feedburner and when I try to validate the rss feed I get the following;

    This feed does not validate.

    line 27, column 1: href must be a full URL: http://theinformationnation/wp-content/plugins/podpress/images/iTunes_Image.jpg [help]

    <itunes:image href="http://theinformationnation/wp-content/plugins/podpress ...
    ^

    line 59, column 0: url must be a full URL: http://theinformationnation.com/wp-content/Radio show/WTF_show_open_mixdown.mp3 [help]

    <enclosure url="http://theinformationnation.com/wp-content/Radio show/WTF_sh ...

    In addition, interoperability with the widest range of feed readers could be improved by implementing the following recommendations.

    line 2, column 0: Use of unknown namespace: http://www.rawvoice.com/rawvoiceRssModule/ [help]

    <rss version="2.0"

    line 93, column 0: content:encoded should not contain embed tag [help]

    <p><embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" flashvars="audioUrl=/wp-conte ...

    What do I need to change or fix?

    Your URL's have spaces in them. The URLs in question indicate you are using PodPress. Make sure you rename your files for the web without spaces since they can cause problems as the URL gets shared between different services/web sites.

    If you are using PowerPress, go to PowerPress settings > iTunes tab and use the change iTunes image -> browse for file option. PowerPress will save your image in an appropriate folder in your wp-content folder that is web URL friendly.

    The last 2 you can ignore, the unknown namespace is because the namespace came out last summer and FeedValidator.org can't keep up with all the namespaces, and the embed should not harm anything either.

    You're going to have to reply with the URL to the feed if you want additional help.

    I have a similar problem. I've been reading different posts for a two days now and can't figure it out. Can you please help me?

    I'm trying to use powerpress to keep my podcasts separate from my blog show recaps.

    <itunes:summary>Around the Valley was started in 2012 as a way to educate and entertain using the people and happenings in the San Gabriel Valley. With little to no coverage for the leaders and accomplishments of the SGV, we strive to promote the greatness we see everyday by sharing events and causes in the hopes of building bridges in the 626.
    We mostly cover El Monte, South El Monte, San Gabriel, Rosemead, Temple City, and Baldwin Park. The cities of Arcadia, Monrovia, Pasadena, Whittier, Sante Fe Springs, La Puente, and West Covina are discussed, but to a lesser extent.</itunes:summary>

    Your feed is empty. Either you have some other plugin conflicting and preventing your episodes from appearing in the feed (enclosures) or yo never entered the media URL in to the Podcast Episode "Media URL" box.

    I'm a real newbie at this... and having the exact same issue - I think I can see the problems, but don't know how to fix them. Here is my feed validator results:

    ammcf: Did you create a podcast episode yet? If you did, see my last reply for other reasons for a 404 feed. If you haven't created an episode yet, then your feed will report 404 (This is web site lingo for saying the content is not found or doesn't exist). It was a geeky thing a few years back, they even sold 404 t-shirts for nerds like me to wear.
