Feed and Podcast URLs

Your Vidcaster site automatically generates a number of feeds, including RSS, GeoRSS, MRSS, video and audio-only podcasts, and embeddable widgets. Some feeds are produced globally, for an entire site, and some feeds are produced for individual categories.

Please note, an RSS feed cannot be generated if your videos are under either Leadwall or Paywall gates and the below URL links will result in a 404 error page. 

Below is a comprehensive list of all feeds generated for your Vidcaster site. Examples use "www.example.com" as the primary Vidcaster site domain.

Submitting your Podcast to iTunes

In order for your podcasts to appear in the iTunes Store, you first need to 'publish' the podcast to Apple. You can do this from iTunes or click here for a shortcut that will likely launch iTunes for you. You will need an account with Apple and will need to submit a separate request for each feed.

Contact support if you have specific feed requirements not covered here.
