Indexing podcast news feeds and presenting them in the search results


I’m trying to index news feeds of podcasts, i. e. downloadable files. But I encounter the following problems:

  1. When I import the podcast feeds (e. g., they are indexed correctly. But when I run a search, the link of the search result does not point to the audio file. It would be really nice if the download link would be presented in the search results. Can I write an extension which does this? Or could this feature be integrated in the current source code?

  2. When I use an advanced crawl job which is started on a page with links to several podcast feeds, the feeds are not recognized as such and thus indexed like a web page. Shouldn’t the crawler recognize the feeds as such and index them accordingly? Example:
    start url =
