Podcast feed image is broken, again

G'morning all,

I found this thread on the podcast image not showing up in the Zune software, but it's nearly a year old.

The image is not showing up currently. When I look up the podcast in the Zune Marketplace, the image is there, but when I subscribe it does not show up. I've tried subscribing from the RSS feed on the website as well and the image still does not show up.

This is a brand new install of the Zune software on a fresh copy of Windows 7 and I've never subscribed to the Drabblecast on this install before so I don't think I've got any leftover files corrupting the feed. :)

Thanks!

Thanks for the feedback. It's similar to iTunes- the iTunes store has the image, but the feed inside iTunes displays the image of the most oldest podcast.

There are changes coming down the pipe which should give Norm more control over image tags.

Hey Tom, I forgot to mention that about a month and a half ago I noticed I didn't have to keep updating that, it had stuck on itunes finally. Go figure.
Now with Zune here, tis a whole new ballgame. Can't make heads or tales of that one.
But yes, changes coming down the pipe. It'll be a while though, so if anyone's got any suggestions here I'd be happy to help fix this now.

General, where exactly does the image not show up?
Thanks and welcome to the forums!

In the Collection>Podcasts section of the Zune software, that shows all the podcasts I'm subscribed to. It doesn't show up on my Zune (the device itself) when I'm listening to a podcast either.

Thanks. :)

Still no podcast art. :(

EDIT: It is a total coincidence that I posted seven months to the day after my last post. :p

Hi General!
Well, I don't know what to do at this point. Since I don't have a Zune, (Running on a Mac) I'm hard pressed to find an immediate solution. Does the episode art come through on the MP3 feed?

No art on either feed, and nothing on BeyondPod on my Android either.

My guess is these programs are looking somewhere other then the audio files themselves for the art, but I dunno for sure.

If you subscribe via feedburner
http://feeds.feedburner.com/TheDrabblecast" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
Do you have the same problems?

What about:
http://web.me.com/normsherman/Site/Podcast/rss.xml" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

The FeedBurner and the MP3 feeds were the feeds I've been using/trying. The rss.xml link also does not load album art for Zune or BeyondPod.

Ok. It sounds like your software is looking for an image tag in the feed which doesn't exist; as you say it's internal to the audio file.
This won't be fixable with the current website. There is talk about a new website which would have a different feed structure, but there is no timeline on this.
Sorry, there's just only so much that can be done with the current setup.
