hosting mp3 files on archive.org for podcasting on wordpress.com blog

  1. Hi,

    Is there a way around the following issue if I use wordpress.com?

    'Archive.org can be used to host podcast audio files but archive.org uses re-directs on the file paths it publishes - this confuses WordPress, and consequently, the Podcast publication fails (missing enclosure tag error).

    To avoid this error, if you are hosting your audio files on archive.org, you need to add a Custom Field called "enclosure" and paste the full url for the mp3 file in the Value field.

    The blog I need help with is extendedtechniques.com.

  2. Are you asking for Staff support?

  3. yes, thank you very much!

  4. I have flagged this thread for Staff attention. Please be patient while waiting.

  5. I've used Archive.org with no issues in the past. As long as you can get the actual URL of the mp3 in question, it works just fine. I think those instructions are relating to WordPress.org.
