Play counts broken?


Since 5/1, my podcast tracks have dropped from averaging about 2,000 plays to less than 10. Has something changed where iTunes plays aren't counting anymore?

Oh, wait, I think I see what is going on now. iTunes downloads of the podcast are counted under RSS downloads now in the stats page instead of the play count. That right? Does this mean that other podcatchers like Stitcher would be included in those numbers now?
OK, yes, that looks like what is going on. Good. Nice to have the information about how the podcast is being played and not just get the plays from iTunes. Sure wish I had an announcement about the switch.
