RSS Rich Media Problem

  1. I am using WordPress as the blog for my podcast (http://bumusicast.wordpress.com). I have my .MP3 files hosted on my own server. I have run my feed through Feedburner.com to make it accessible to iTunes and such (http://feeds.feedburner.com/BreathingUnderwatersMusicPodcast). My first post of my first podcast episode worked without a hitch and iTunes accepted it with no problem. With my second post of my second episode, Feedburner cannot seem to recognize my rich media file. Instead, it is only recognizing the link for the title of post. My second post is an exact duplicate of my original post; I have only altered the show notes and the link to the .MP3.

    Why would my first post work but not my second if they are virtually identical? The following is the error that I get from Feedburner when I ask it to search for rich media enclosures:

    Content Item: "Episode 2, 11/13/11 – Machine Head Extravaganza"
    Link: http://bumusicast.wordpress.com/2011/11/16/episode-2-111311-machine-hea/
    Content Type reported: text/html; charset=UTF-8
    Media enclosure not created because: The content type returned from your host server was a text type, not a binary media type. Podcast content should always return a binary media type, such as audio/mpeg for audio, or video/mpeg for video.

    Content Item: "Episode 1, 10/15/11 – Favorite Albums & All-Stars Tour Review"
    Yay! Media enclosure created for: podcast/Breathing%20Underwater%27s%20Musicast%20Episode%201,%2010-15-11.mp3

    The blog I need help with is bumusicast.wordpress.com.

  2. Have your reported this issue to Staff? If not then here’s the link http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/ After you use the searchbox, under the search results, at the bottom of the page there will be a section that says “Have you found the answer to your question?” You can choose either “Yes I found the answer to my question.” or “No I didn’t find the answer to my question and I would like to contact support for help.” The no option will reveal the contact form.
