Hi,

I am trying to upload my first podcast, but I get a Red Flag displayed and it won't play.

However, if I upload the media and link it to a page, it plays with no problems.

What am I doing wrong?

Also I can't find the iTunes compatibility box under Media!

Thanks

I think I haver posted this in the wrong area!

Hi there,

A red flag means that the file is missing. One of the problems people have is that their web host won't allow big files to be uploaded from a browser.
When you goto
Church Admin>Media>Upload a file it should show

You can upload a file up to 64MB
The number will be different. Your mp3 to upload needs to be smaller than the figure. Send a support ticket to your web host and ask them to up the number.

I tend to upload the files to the uploads/sermons directory using FileZilla (an FTP program) and then goto Church Admin>Media>Add uploaded files and do it from there.

"Also I can't find the iTunes compatibility box under Media!"
Try Church Admin>Media>Podcast Settings to get that set up.
There's a tutorial on getting an iTunes and Spotify Podcast online at
