I currently host my own XML file for my podcast and use Amazon S3 to host the media files. I'm interested in switching to Soundcloud to host the files instead. I have a few important requirements tho:
- I only want Soundcloud to host the files. I do not need an XML/RSS feed and will continue to use and host my own.
- Can I easily access the source file (.mp3) to grab and include in my own XML file?
- I do not want the podcasts to be public on Soundcloud (basically for competing SEO reasons). I'd like to keep the podcast profile private as well as all of the episodes (basically I don't want anyone to find the content or me on Soundcloud). By doing so, will the source files still work on my external feed?
- If so, will download functions still work for subscribers on iTunes (I've seen a few tickets here that have run into this issue).
