How to upload my podcast on iTunes?

Forum
Other Apple Chat

Hi everyone, I would like to register some potcast in spanish language about everything which is related to Apple world: getting start with a Mac, explanation about some app for Iphone taht i find interesting, etc. because unfortunatelly there is not so much content in this language. I would like that these potcast would be upload on Itunes, but I have no idea how to do it. Please, someone has any idea and could give me some advice?. I read that as I don't live in the States I can not upload the contents directly but I'm not sure if it's true or not, and I don't know how to do it. Many thanks in advance. Maria

Hello María,
First of all, thankfully you don't have to be in the US to publish podcasts to iTunes. As for how you do it,
Apple themselves don't store your audio. They nearly give people a podcast directory which can be viewed either in iTunes, the stock podcast app or some other apps which use the iTunes directory.

So, you're going to need your podcast to have an RSS feed that conforms to the iTunes standard, which if you are using a hosting provider like podbean or a blog plugin like PowerPress for Wordpress should already be the case. You'll also need an artwork image which should have a size of at least 1400X1400. If you don't have one you can just use a dummy image generator like this one to make it:

Once you set this image up with wherever you're hosting your podcast, you go to
https://podcastsconnect.apple.com/, sign in and submit the rss feed of your podcast.

Hi all,
Piotr, many thanks for your answer. I would have 2 questions about it:
You spoke about an immage, ("artwork" but, what is it?, it's the immage that we want to people see when they see our potcast?, is it necessary?.
And the most important question: we have an space, but, we would like to create potxast in different launguages: spanish, italian and portoghese. My question is: using the same space, it would be possible to create 3 different "potcast chanels" each one with a different name?, if it's possible, please, could someone say us how to do it?.
Many many thanks again, goodnight and have a good startweek.
María
