Importing Podcasts

So you've finally found all the back episodes of Car Talk, and downloaded them. But how do you get those files to show up with the other Podcasts in iTunes? Sometimes you can just import them. 

But often, they only show up as Music, and not a Podcast (or the wrong Podcast). In this case you have to add four tags
  • ITUNESPODCAST                         - Set this to 1
  • ITUNESPODCASTDESC              - This can be anything you want, 
  • ITUNESPODCASTID                    - In this example, it is the URL of the MP3 that we downloaded
  • ITUNESPODCASTURL                - This is the important one - make it match the URL listed in the MP3s of the Podcast you are joining it to
Then just Import the mp3s and they will show up. Refer to the Batch Editing page if you have to do a bunch.

The standard tags you get look like this:


You need to make them look like this:
