You need to have a Pro account to get MP3 and HD transcodes. You can learn more about Pro accounts here: http://blip.tv/faq/pro

Step 1. Go to http://feedburner.com . If you already have a Google account you can just sign in. If not you will be directed to create a free account.

Step 2. Once signed in enter the Blip RSS URL you would like to add as a secondary feed. If you are adding an audio version of your show this would be http://blip.tv/YOUR-SHOW/rss/mp3 . If you are adding a HDTV version it would be http://blip.tv/YOUR-SHOW/rss/hdtv . Make sure to check the box marked: "I am a podcaster!"

Step 3. You'll be taken to a page where you will be able to choose your new Feedburner URL. This is usually http://feeds.feedburner.com/_________ . Remember what you choose here for a future step.

Step 4. Return to the main Dashboard panel of Feedburner either by clicking "My Feeds" or simply going to http://feedburner.com while remaining signed in. Once here, click on your new show feed.

Step 5. You are now going to use the Title/Description Burner function to change your title. This will prevent iTunes from falsely flagging the new feed as a duplicate of your already existing iTunes listing. We recommend simply adding something like (MP3 Version) to the end of your title, but its up to you what you change/add to make the title different. You can change the description here as well if you would like, but it is not necessary.

Step 6. Now you're ready to submit your new feed to iTunes. Simply visit this link and when asked for your feed submit the http://feeds.feedburner.com/_________ link that you created earlier. iTunes will take up 72 hours to approve your new listing.
