Using YouTube as video host then getting RSS for iTunes (2 posts)

    Is it possible to use PodPress to get podcasts uploaded to YouTube into an RSS feed for iTunes? It doesn't seem to be an option in the settings. I was using Amazon S3, but apparently there are people out there watching my podcast and the costs were mounting up.

    I am not a techie or anything- please help!

    Well, it is possible to add YouTube videos to your posts with podPress. But since a link to a YouTube video is not like a link to a certain media, it is not possible to add YouTube video like video files to RSS feeds (it is not possible to add them as <enclosure>s). That is iTunes does not recognises YouTube videos which are part of post.

    You need to have an URL to the source file of the video.
