For some reason some of the podcasts I am subscribed to on the Podcasts app are not updating.
Some update just fine but for some no new episodes are appearing.
Apple has now streamlined their podcast process, and has revised their procedure for submitting podcasts and have added a very useful tool to the service. In addition, they have now created something called "Podcasts Connect", an online resource for all things related to podcast RSS feeds and Itunes.
Check it out here: Apple Podcasts Connect At the link above, you can view the current specifications that they require.

They were not super-diligent on updating the public about these changes, until now.
After personally reviewing the specs, as well as reading up (and keeping up) with Libsyn, our preferred podcast hosting provider, the most common reason that your podcast feed stops updating on ITunes is due to your artwork. So I would like to refer you either to the above link, or check out my blog post on Podcast Artwork.
One of the hidden specs that Apple doesn't really disclose, but Libsyn has stated over and over due to direct correspondence with Apple, is that your podcast artwork should not exceed 500kb in file size.
Is there anyway to deal with this or is it just an annoying Microsoft glitch?
Not Too Deep With Grace Helbig for example, while, other ones (such as the IGN podcasts) work fine.
