Technically Optimistic

Podcast Feed Limited by Feedburner

May 08, 2017

The last two episodes of Developer Tea haven’t shown any downloads, so naturally I reached out to Simplecast to get an answer.

While waiting, I kept trying to diagnose the feed directly, having totally forgotten that the RSS feed itself was being managed by Feedburner.

Unfortunately, Feedburner has a limit to the size of feed it will parse - specifically 1024K.

Luckily, Apple has made managing podcasts easy; updating an RSS feed is as simple as entering it into a field in the Podcasts Connect interface. Goodbye, Feedburner.
