I've just now tried adding your references to my podcasts.

Then using an Imp Adapt with v257-a-865-a-476:

The first and second give the same result as you report.

The third offers me several dates and the ones I selected at random all play; 32 kbit/s MP3.

I've had similar problems with my WDR podcasts in the late evening having moved my radio. I suspected Reciva of having changed something regarding the radio's IDs as it worked again when switching the Product-ID of my radio to 648.

But some cold starts and some ID-changes back and forth showed it was at random. So I think a certain Reciva server has been (is?) out of order and it depended on what server the radio connected to during a cold start.

I want to address to user Reciva_Toby, it is possible or to rectify this error with podcasts? For me it is very important, as 80 % of podcasts are used through site service http:// www.feed43.com. This service to me allows to edit RSS streams (as my radio doesn't support a Cyrillic font) and to create podcasts from any web pages. Cold starts haven't helped me, podcasts don't work. :'(

FYI the same issue started on my Tangent Quattro about 2 or 3 days ago, on certain podcasts from NPR.

BBC podcasts are still working, though.

Hello all,

Thanks for the error report.

This had started occuring since we rolled out an update to the podcast parsing mechanism to attempt to cure the podcast-playing-wrong-episode issue. I've now rolled out another update and you should find that podcasts and now working as before. I've checked the ones listed in this thread and they all now work for me.

Regards,
Matt

... one problem that seems to have been resolved (at least as far as I can tell at this point in time) is HTTP redirect. France Culture and ORF podcasts play OK on my radio without resorting to workarounds.

Thanks for that!

Is this the 301 redirects I read about in another post?

The BBC podcasts seem to be straightened out, too.  Before, selecting the BBC Radio 4 "In Our Time Archive: History" podcast would play some podcast about baking the perfect Christmas cake or some similar stupid thing.  Now it seems to actually play the correct selection.

I am no expert on this. According to pb (link), it was 302 redirects that weren't handled properly and thus required a workaround.

I think we are referring to the same thing, though...

Podcast stopped. Error: buffering 0%
« Reply #11 on: 09:23:29 | 19 November, 2011 »
Thanks people from Reciva the problem described above is solved. But I have one more problem with my podcasts: After the beginning playback a podcast, it stops approximately in 3 minutes. On the screen of radio an inscription - buffering 0 %. After that begins playback a podcast at first. Probably to solve this problem? Here references these podcasts:
1. http://www.feed43.com/vrema_politiki.xml
2. http://www.feed43.com/vrema_gostey.xml
3. http://www.feed43.com/grani_vremeni.xml
4. http://www.svobodanews.ru/podcast/?count=50&zoneId=102
Here the reference  at old forum Reciva, at the user "junger" just the same problem.  :'(

I am still having this problem with my two favorite Podcasts.  It just says " Unable To Load Podcast ".  It has been working fine for months.

I, of course thought it was my Radio  a Sangean RCR-8WF, but from what I am reading here, it seems it is happening all over.

I then started having problems getting mp3 streams from a host that I have been using for months also.  It would play for about 3 minutes then reload and start over.  I moved the file to another Apache server that I run myself on a Windows box and it works just fine. 

What gives?  What changed?  I didn't change anything and all the previews play just fine in the Reciva website?

I was amused that Reciva now thinks they are so perfect that they do not have to host a forum.  Glad you guys are here.

I'm not getting the BBC podcasts or on-demand at the moment.  The rest of the podcast menu seems to be working.
