Solved

I just want to use a particular playlist for my rss podcast, not the entire soundcloud profile


Can I do this? I have a specific image for my podcast that I want iTunes to pick up that's on the playlist, not the main soundcloud image. It looks like it's possible if just the rss code is modified....can I access this?

Hi Sarah,

A playlist does not have its individual RSS feed - only your account has a feed address once the podcasting features are enabled for your account. However, you can decide which of the tracks on your account you want to include in the feed.

Please take a look at the screenshot in the middle of this article on our help center:

This is how you can include / exclude a track from your feed.

Another great resource for podcasting can be found here:

Hope this helps!
Cheers

Hi Mathis,
I understand we cannot have RSS feed for specific playlist, but how can we arrange or control the flow of tracks or sequence of tracks playout at Tunein.

Yes, I have this same question. I'm transferring some old podcast files over to SoundCloud, but it doesn't look like I re-order these older tracks and have them show beneath the more current tracks. 😞

Likewise; I did a mass-upload of old podcast episodes but they're not uploading in the right order. It seems to be just whichever one finishes first gets an upload timestamp, and the RSS feed now has everything out of order.

Is the only solution to this, to remove everything and upload one episode at a time, from oldest to newest? Or is there a way to manually re-order the RSS feed content?

Boo, hiss! This is really too bad, since I would like to have two or more different podcasts from my account. I don't want to have to set up different accounts for them, not because of cost, but extra management. If I could pay to enable podcasting-RSS from a playlist I would!
Is there any update on playlist RSS feeds?
i don’t have a podcast of my own, i simply want to be able to play soundcloud playlists (or full account feeds) AS a podcast feed. i want to be able to speed things up and also get better notice or new episodes on my podcast app. many podcasters (inexplicably) never put their shows on itunes or lisbyn, and there’s no point asking everyone.

so, does the account owner really need to turn on podcast feature? or can i just find the right link and then subscribe to their sc channel in my podcast app?
