Forum Question: Podcast or Music

When I download podcasts and play them on my iPhone I have the really neat feature to play at twice or four times the speed and to jump back 30 seconds. When I create my own podcast in garageband and move it to my iPhone via iTunes, I don’t have these neat features. My home made Podcasts behave like a music track.

Am I doing something wrong or is there a trick I am missing?

    I think what you are seeing is the difference between a podcast and “music” — a podcast comes from an RSS feed and is labeled as a podcast in iTunes. But if you take that same file and just load it on to your iPhone like a music track, then it is “music” even if you think of it as a podcast. Your iPhone doesn’t know the content of the file, just where it comes from.
