iTunes 4.9 – 1 click subs on your site!. iTunes now does podcasts (and videoblogs!), and lets you create 1-click subscribe buttons.

It’s a little bit tricky to create a one click subscription link for iTunes.

Create the xml file like this (via here):

< ?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>< !DOCTYPE
pcast PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PCAST 1.0//EN" "http://www.itunes.com/DTDs/pcast-1.0.dtd"><pcast
version="1.0"><channel><link rel="feed" type="application/rss+xml"
href="http://www.deltaparkproject.com/feed.cfm&quot; /><title>Delta
Park Project</title><category>Comedy</category><subtitle>A
great weekly show with comedy clips, pop culture reviews, the small town police
blotter and funny songs. Hosted by married duo Jason and Anna.</subtitle></link></channel></pcast>

Save it as a file and give it a .pcast extension (it requires that so iTunes can pick up the file, so a .php extension won’t work. A query string extension also doesn’t work, so .pcast?id=4 doesn’t work.)

Now link to it. You can use an image or just a text link. Then, when a user clicks the link, if they have iTunes 4.9 installed, it will subscribe to the feed.
