I just recently got approved for my podcast and I did all of the steps required through iWeb & Garageband. My podcast showed up on iTunes Podcast Directory but when I tried to click play it wasn't working at all. And I couldn't download it either.

So I'm not sure what I did wrong through that process.

And as my question is mainly about xml files, the .xml generated through iWeb was uploaded to my webhost and I could see it in my ftp client. Now I'm not sure what I do from here, should I use a feed management tool like feedburner to have a constantly updated podcast feed or do I just click publish everytime on my iWeb to get it to work?

Also, if I want to switch from iWeb to something else later, what files do I need to be aware of?

Thank you soo much for any help and advice!!

iWeb spits out nothing but static files. If you want dynamic content, then it's not really an option at all.

Where you need to put these files is a question you should ask your hosting provider, but they will usually go into a "www" or "public_html" directory.
