This is incorrect.
What you are going to need to do, is locate the rss feed of your blog. RSS
refers to really simple syndication, which is what makes a poddcast and a
blog work together hand in hand.
You will know it's the right kind of link when you see a link that ends in
a .rss, or .xml extention. Go to your blog provider's help section and you
can find this address. You then need to go to feedburner, and paste this
rss, or .xml link into the box on feedburner's page, and then feedburner
will then look to see if it can find any audio content on your blog, and it
will then turn any audio content you post to your blog as a
podcast. Feedburner will give you an address to use for your podcast. This
address is different than the one than you pasted in, yeah i know this is
starting to get confusing, stay with me here buddy!!!
But the link you give your podcast subscribers would look something like
or whatever you'd like to call your podcast. You would do all this, so
that when you create a blog entry and then post a link to an audio file to
it, remember this is just a regular old link to the file, nothing special
about this, but when you post any audio to your blog, Feedburner will do a
check and it'll say oh! Chuck's got new stuff, I'm gonna podcast it! then
your podcast subscribers would get new stuff without having to download it
I would say the bitrate of your file is a bit low for a podcast though.
Most portable audio players have trouble with audio content with a lower
bitrate like 20 k at 11025 hertz mono, so for best results, I would do a
file at 64k, 44.1 khz mono. Yes the files might be bigger in size, but
you'll be able to make sure that all your listeners will be able to take
the files you produce with them anywhere they go on any player they have.
I hope all this is helpful. If you have any questions, or if what I said
isn't making much sense, just write back and I'm sure others can help you

After pasting a url feed in to Feed Burner, it wont authenticate or accept
the feed url. Is there either a time limit or bit rate limit or what.
Below is my url feed. Does it look right. I got it off the media player
The program is 10:42 minutes. 20 bps, 11025 hz.
What do I do now? Help!
