Anyone else having trouble with the podcast on iTunes?
« on: August 19, 2014, 12:57:45 AM »
For the last two weeks, every few hours the podcast disappears from my subscribed podcast. I have to resubscribe but it will disappear again in a few hours. My other podcasts stay, but both RPPR and the Actual Play are gone. Anyone have a similar problem? Anyone know how to fix it?

What are you using, iTunes?

It's the podcast app on my iPhone which is part of iTunes

I'm using the same app but no problems here.
You've been sucked out of the airlock into the black. Roll all the dice on the table for damage.

The podcasts app by iTunes is woefully neglected and rarely updated, so when they update iOS it's way behind on updates. Usually when I run into issues with it I either have to restart my phone or, more rarely, delete and re-download the app. Restarting my phone typically handles it though.

Rssradio7 is a decent podcast app available on Iphone. I use it over Apple's crap.

Stitcher mirrors every podcast they list and they have far better servers than I do. Of course their mirrored copies are compressed even further, but I haven't had any complaints yet.
