Podcast Namespaces in RSS – Explained – PHD159



Play

In the history of podcasting, there have been a few Namespaces added to RSS to make podcasting work.  Apple added the <itunes: > namespace, Google added the <googleplay:> namespace and even Blubrry added the <rawvoice:> namespace.  Now there is a new one done by independent podcasters, app developers, companies and other interested people called the <podcast:> namespace.   It’s done by the Podcast Index people at  https://podcastindex.org.

I explain what a namespace is and go over the new tags being added by the “podcast” namespace.

Below are some of the new podcast namespace tags that have been adopted or suggested.  See an updated list and other info here: https://github.com/Podcastindex-org/podcast-namespace

 

Phase 1 and 2 Adopted:

  • <podcast:locked>
  • <podcast:transcript>
  • <podcast:funding>
  • <podcast:chapters>

  • <podcast:location>
  • <podcast:season>
  • <podcast:episode>
