Hello,

I try to start with a new Podcast. I uploaded the first file and try to publish it.

http://feeds.soundcloud.com/users/soundcloud:users:364382060/sounds.rss

Before I do so, I have check the link at podbas.de, to see if everything works well.
It doesn't. I get enclose error message:

Cover art
The cover art must be 1,400–3,000 pixels square to look good on fancy retina-class displays.
Darn, I wasn’t able to retrieve the image (got a “getimagesize(http://a1.sndcdn.com/images/default_avatar_original.png): failed to open stream: HTTP request failed! HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found ” error). If you’re sure it’s there, please report using the "?" in the lower-right corner.


I have change to Cover Art several times, I take care of the size and format. But I couldn't get it.

Perhaps somebody could help me here.

SoundCloud apparently uses the account profile artwork as the artwork for iTunes. Make sure that artwork is updated and meets the necessary requirements for the iTunes spec.

Your current iTunes artwork URL is linking here:
http://a1.sndcdn.com/images/default_avatar_original.png
Which is coming up as a 404. Make sure you've got the correct link included in your settings so it's pointing to a valid file URL.
Thank for your advice. Where can I find the correct link?

I toke the one I found at the "RSS-Feed". Please have a look at the attachment



The Cover art was imported at the "Mainpage".
