New podcast URL types allow one-click subscriptions

I also tried this with IE on XP Pro, not thru VPC, and could not get either URL types to work. IE gives "the page cannot be displayed" error message and nothing else happens.

However, links to a particular podcast within the ITMS do work with IE on XP Pro. URLs like: http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewPodcast?id=73329653

These links even start up iTunes 4.9 on the PC just like it would on a Mac and keeps you on the same URL so you do not get an error.

How/where do you find the ID number for a particular podcast?

At the podcast's "album"-style display page, grab the URL associated with the album picture - it's the link shown just above.

The problem with these phobos links is that they require the podcast to be in the ITMS. That won't do for private podcasts.

I have tried this (itps://...) on Windows XP SP1 and SP2 and it works well.

Would anyone know the ports involved here - on my local server I keep getting a server timeout when using XP (SP2 only)
