Podcast 'tracked URL' not valid for iTunes store
When I try to submit a podcast on iTunes via https://podcastsconnect.apple.com/my-podcasts/new-feed I get a "Failed Validation" error.
It turns out that the 'tracked URL' is causing this. As soon as I change the
enclosure url value to the resolved URL, the feed validates OK.
Maybe iTunes has issues with the tracking URL redirection?
Here is an example: https://idonthavetimetogameanymore.com/podcasts/play/main/3.mp3 <- a feed with this in it is flagged as "invalid", even though the URL resolves correctly https://idonthavetimetogameanymore.com/perch/resources/ep-3-backseat-driver.mp3 <- a feed with this in it is "valid"
Does this seem strange to you? I'm using the default URL tracking method in the Perch Podcast app. I'm reluctant to give this up without at least some understanding because tracked URLs seem cool.
