After clicking the "Validate" button on i Tunes, I got this message from them: "Podcast artwork must be between 1400 x 14 x 3000 pixels, JPG or PNG, in RGB color space, and hosted on a server that allows HTTP head requests." i Tunes does show one of my images, but the image doesn't meet their size requirements.
But how did it choose that image, and how can I make it choose a different one, one which meets their requirements? If you don’t add an image to your podcast's episode, i Tunes will use your Sound Cloud profile image as the default image for the episode.
Currently, I'm using xml_domit_rss as the parser but I'm unsure if it's actually validating the URL before parsing.
From what I can gather online, it looks as if validating is separate from the parse, either by using a service (feedvalidator.org) or some other method (parse_url()).
Hypersyndication allows content creators to publish across all media platforms more quickly and efficiently, decreasing distribution costs and maximizing audience reach.

There is nothing to be concerned about if you receive the notice “Unable to validate namespace: Rss Module/.” We are working with Feed folks to recognize the Raw Voice namespace, so this notice will go away.
Feed currently does not recognize the latest i Tunes specifications, including the new closed captioning and order attributes.
Make sure your image is 1400x1400 pixels, or i Tunes will not populate the image.
