Updated Podcast feeds for iTunes

Hiya Treehouse Students!

We just shipped a change to the way we do our iTunes feeds and I wanted to provide some details. If you look at your Dashboard or the Library page, you'll notice the original iTunes feed link is now missing and a little bit of information will direct you to the individual Course, Deep Dive, or Bonus Content Series pages. If you look near the top of any of those pages now, just above the links to each stage will be an iTunes feed link. This link is specific to that Course, Deep Dive, or Bonus Content so you don't have to subscribe to a Library feed of everything we provide.

New Location

So where did that iTunes Library feed go? It'll stick around for a little bit longer as students begin finding the new links, but this feed will be retired soon so you should consider unsubscribing in iTunes. If you are currently subscribed to the library feed for iTunes, it will stop working at the end of this month. Overall, these feeds are smaller, faster, and more focused on specific areas of content. Our Library feed was getting more and more difficult to maintain as our content Library grew (and we have a LOT of content now) so the iTunes feed has gotten slower as a result. The size of the library feed also causes problems with iTunes and has trouble keeping up to date with our updates to content.

We believe this will be a much better way to access Treehouse content, but we're always listening for feedback on what you think.

Update: We've officially retired the feed now. If you are already subscribed to the old feed, you'll get an instructional video instead showing you where to go for the new video feeds.

Awwww :) I love this. Makes my library organised!

That's awesome!!!!!!

HALLELUJAH! Thanks!

Great. Thanks for this addition. tbh previous feed link was useless because vidoes were out of order and I had to download all the videos and then find out which one belong to which course. Nice addition. Thanks.

A page with all the feeds collected would be nice.

Second this

That's a really cool idea Johan Lyttbacka! Are you thinking a page that is grouped by course? It would be similar to our Library page where you can look at our courses by category.

I was thinking more like a single page where all the feeds are listed. Now if I want to subscribe to all feeds I need to click on all sorts of courses and bonus content links to get the feed. Reuse the old "iTunes feeds" link (that's inactivated now) and link it to a page with all feeds. All (for those who really only need all files) -Websites --Build a Simple website --etc etc -Programming --etc -Business --etc -iOS Development --etc -Android Development --etc

-Learning adventures --Become a Web Designer -- etc etc -Bonus content -- MozCon 2012 -- etc etc

So more or less like the Library page today.

iTunes is awesome, but I prefer Plex. But Plex can't mark an episode as watched in a channel. To fetch new episodes (with gold membership of course) via a cron script, check this article: https://coderwall.com/p/n7kpqa

That is really handy Balazs Nadasdi and thank you for sharing the script.

Sadly a little bit buggy because of the naming, so I need to update the script to rename all episodes =( Plex can't recognise episodes as a sequential parts of a big Show.

it's Awesome feature thank you guys ,, but i don't know why the feed is not in HD , Aaron Kalin can you help me about this ?

Right now its in the default standard size, but I will look at getting an HD link in there somehow. For the time being, you can add an hd=true to the iTunes podcast link if you copy the link address and add a &hd=true at the end, then go to File -> Subscribe to Podcast and input the new link there.

it worked just fine Thank you Aaron ,,a great support thats why treehouse is the best
