?? Did something change with the feed? Can't download.
« on: October 17, 2019, 04:35:54 PM »
Hi.
Was wondering if something changed with the Escape Pod feed starting with Martian Chronicles part#2 ?
Starting with that Ep and the next, when I try to download in iTunes I just get an error.
Pseudopod downloads just fine but not so much with Escape Pod.  :P

Any thoughts?
Gary

I'm running into the same issue. I wonder if it's something related to the new apple podcasts "upgrade."

Another data point ... I went into iTunes Store on my laptop, found Escape Pod and I can "play" all of the episodes EXCEPT for Episode 701.
So this makes me think there is something wrong with the file.

Update 10/18/19 - The new Escape Pod Ep#702 has appeared in my feed ... it will not download either.
As a test I went over to Pod Castle and the latest Ep downloaded like a charm. It JUST SEEMS TO BE ESCAPE POD.

Is anyone looking into this?

Hi Gary,

We haven't heard of this issue before, but we'll look into it!

Hi All.
Just as an update, I signed onto iTunes just now and the latest Psuedopod Ep auto downloaded, smooth as silk.
Then it tried to download Episode 702 of Escape pod and failed.

I have restarted this laptop a few times now in the hopes it might clear this up but it hasn't. Wondering if there is some secret pointer somewhere that I need to manually find and erase. Something that got corrupted the first time the download failed and is now haunting me.

Any thoughts?

FURTHER UPDATE -
I did a whole new subscription to https://feeds.feedburner.com/Escapepod because I saw some chatter in back posts about feed changes. Achieved the subscription but STILL Escape Pod won't download any episodes after #700

Gary, playing those files from inside the iTunes Store works, and playing those files from the Feedburner page directly via a web browser also works for us. Does this work for you?
 
If you are using iTunes, have you tried to unsubscribe from the feed you have now, then go into the iTunes Store, and resubscribe from the iTunes show page?
https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/escape-pod/id73329293

This will ensure that you're using the correct feed.

Thanks for updating us on your troubles. We hope this solves your subscription woes!

Playing from within the store does not work for me.

Playing from the website does.

Hi nickpheas, if possible, could you provide a little more detail on what happens when you try to play it from the store? We're not seeing any problems when we try it so it's challenging to troubleshoot.
