On the podcast artwork for single episodes in iTunes and iOS

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 08:13:24 -0000

Since the introduction of episodes embedded images in Podcast Generator, one of the most recurring questions has been why iTunes and the iOS Podcast app don't show the artwork associated to single episodes yet keep displaying the main podcast artwork/cover art.

The short answer to this question is that, at the moment we write, the iOS podcast app and iTunes do NOT seem to support the tag (artwork) for single episodes, and they keep showing the main podcast artwork (see also discussion here).

Podcast Generator does successfully implement all the recommendations from Apple in regards to the itunes specific podcast tags, including both at the feed and at the item level. According to the technical specs

The tag is also supported at the (episode) level

However Apple does not implement this specific recommendation neither in the iOS podcast app nor in iTunes. Currently, the artwork associated to a single episode () using the tag is simply ignored.

Looking forward to see this feature fully integrated in Apple products! :)

Ligther, Faster, HTML5 audio/video players, and much more!

Sun, 26 Oct 2014 17:30:46 -0000

Podcast Generator 2.3 is on its way... It took longer than expected but
this upgrade will be great!
Lighter and faster than ever, it includes brand new HTML5 audio and video players! We just added a bonus feature that our users have been requesting for a while: it is now possible to call PG via a cron job to automatically index new episodes uploaded to the media folder. This feature opens a series of new use scenarios. For instance, we implemented the possibility to publish an episode in a future date: upload multiple episodes at once, and release them in the iTunes store automatically on a given date or periodically.
PG 2.3 coming soon! Check out the beta
