Features of feedBurner; How to reduce Blogger feed size? RSS,blogspot

Google Feedburner distributes not only RSS or atom feeds but also rich media, such as audio or video (distributed via RSS). Feeds like this one provide updates whenever there is new content. FeedBurner makes it easy to receive content updates in popular podcatchers.
RSS (most commonly expanded as Really Simple Syndication) is a family of web feed formats used to publish frequently updated works—such as blog entries in a standardized format. An RSS document (which is called a "feed"or "channel") includes full or summarized text, plus metadata.

Sometime you will find a message like "Your feed filesize is larger than 576K. You need to reduce its size in order for FeedBurner to process it. Tips for controlling feed file size with Blogger can be found in Tech Tips on FeedBurner Forums, our support site" while generating your blog feeds (through FeedBurner).

  7. Now click on "Next", you will now able to burn your feed.

Another method is:
    • Sign in to your FeedBurner account.
    • At the dashboard, click on the feed
    • Now click on "Edit feed details" just below your feed name.
    • In "Original feed" area, add "?max-results=3" at the last of that feed.
    • Again, you can increase the number of results until you reach your maximum point.
