My Flash Briefing skill won't play my .mp3

i've created a flash briefing skill and i've uploaded my mp3 file to my bucket in S3. when i put the link to that file in my flash briefing under configuration it tells me it needs to be a JSON or RSS feed, but its a .mp3 and if i'm reading correctly the flash briefing can read mp3 files. I'm thinking i need to add it as a streamurl but i'm not sure how to format that in the configuration URL. do i just add streamurl:Https\\(mp3 content link)

You'll need to link to a feed in this format: https://developer.amazon.com/public/solutions/alexa/alexa-skills-kit/docs/flash-briefing-skill-api-feed-reference . You cannot directly link to an mp3, you need to put up an interediate json formatted feed.
