Apple revises, expands iTunes podcasting specs

Apple sent out an email today to iTunes podcasters announcing revised and expanded podcast specifications. The email also pointed out an Apple-hosted forum exclusively for podcasters.

“Since you’ve got an active podcast listed in iTunes, we would like to let you know about a few valuable new resources,” the email reads. “First, the technical spec has been revised and expanded. Check here for all questions or problems related to your podcast, or if you’re interested in enhancing the appearance of your listing with iTunes-specific tags. There is also an Apple Discussions Forum exclusively for podcast producers. If you have a question or a problem that the technical spec cannot answer, the community of iTunes podcasters there should be able to provide valuable guidance.”

I remember when Jeremy and Bob’s iLounge podcast was the highlight of my week (sigh).

I agree with the Bring Back the Jeremy and Bob Show poster. The iLounge podcast truly satisfied my craving for Apple and iPod news. C’mon guys, if your time permits, revive your podcast.

I was also wondering what happened to the ilounge podcast when the refreshes in itunes didn’t show any new podcasts. Then after a few weeks i got worried and searched all over the net…

Truth is (and i just knew from the above posts) that ilounge had stopped podcasting…

It would be nice if Apple would strongly encourage poster to have some consisten method of identifying their posts so folks could easily generate smart playlists for the casts they listen to regularly. I have a handful of casts that I listen to on the way to work, most of the posts have something that my smart playlist can key on to load the cast into the playlist. Many however do not.

You can call me crazy, but I refuse to believe that iLounge podcasts are done. :)
