Interesting Podcast Feed Statistics

I analyzed almost 13,000 responsive podcast feeds from Digital Podcast.  I found about 260,000 enclosures or links to podcast shows, for an average of 20 per feed.  The vast majority of the shows are audio shows with mp3 and m4a making up over 88% of the shows.  Video mp4, m4v, and mov formats made up almost 10% of the shows.

Here’s the file type breakdown:

  • mp3 – 86.2%
  • mp4 –  4.3%
  • m4v –  3.3%
  • m4a –  2.1%
  • mov –  2.0%
  • other –  1.6%
  • unknown – 0.5%
