"Can't download episodes from your feed" error message

I have fixed roadblocks along the way from resizing image, to adding Podtrac.and now I'm stuck. The message I am getting is "Can't download episodes from your feed." I have selected "Include in RSS Feed", however somebody with more knowledge than me tells me all of the links in my RSS feed are dead links (i.e. no media file). At a loss at this point on what to do, I'm paying for hosting via SoundCloud.

Update: I've figured out that the deadlinks on MP3 files are related to WAV files while I have some active links that are MP3 format. Still clueless.

Hey hey,

Looks like the link you've provided in the Stats service URL is breaking your feed. Please make sure only http:// is in there, no customization. Thanks to the way this generic Podtrac-link works in the background, it will still be tied to your SoundCloud feed URL.

Hi Mathis,

Thank you for the reply, though still having issues. I have tried posted the following as you said in the stats service URL.

I get the error message "Cover art must be between 1400x1400 and 3000 x 3000 pixels, JPG or PNG, in RGB color space, and hosted on a server that allows HTTP head requests" It's the error message I received before I realized I needed tracking. What am I doing wrong this time?
Publishing a new thread, since I believe this one has gone dead being marked "Solved" without me confirming it was solved...
