Adding rss feed to iTunes podcast

Just installed DC, and like it so far. One problem though...

I'm trying to add a feed for a podcast using the link copied & pasted from iTunes. I enter the url in DC. and it gives the message that "URL is valid, but id doesn't look like a valid RSS feed: org.apache.harmony.xml. ExpatParser$ParseException: At line 57, column 4183: not well-formed (invalid token)."

The url entered is: https://itunes.apple.com/podcast/hill-country-bible-church/id137976793?mt=2

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you.

iTunes

The best way to get the feed URL from iTunes is open iTunes app on a PC, then right click on the feed in iTunes podcast folder/section and left click copy podcast URL.
Also the feed you're looking for is in DC's database,open DC’s add feed screen, & select Search Feeds, then type in the name of the podcast & then press search,press the digital podcast tab & it's the second feed listed

Thank you for the fast reply,

Thank you for the fast reply, Wayne. I did get the url from right-clicking in iTunes. Not sure why it didn't work when pasted into DC.

I did find the podcast in the Digital podcast section. Didn't realize there was a difference between the contents of the DogCatcher and the Digitalpodcasts sections in Search.

In any case, I found what I needed.

Thanks for your help.

You're welcome, right-clicking in the iTunes store will give you the web page URL for the feed https://itunes.apple.com/podcast/hill-country-bible-church/id137976793?mt=2 , subscribe to feed & then right-click in iTunes podcast library will give you the podcast/feed URL http://sermons.myhcbc.com/xml/hcbcpodcast.xml

Thank you for this! I hate iTunes, thus the reason I have doggcastcher for android and this shed some light in a dark area.

Thank you Wayne.

If you don't have itunes

If you don't have itunes installed, you can use this Itunes RSS URL Extractor thing: http://itunes.so-nik.com/
It might be a cool feature to have in DoggCatcher, but they'd probably get sued :P
