Podcast metadata issue - tracks not showing up in Subsonic

Post by davidbspalding » Sat Apr 12, 2014 1:08 pm

I found this thread because MM 4.1.1.1703 can't or won't download This American Life (TAL) podcast, and hasn't since 3/16.

I can get it via Firefox download from the above RSS feed. I've deleted my subscription in MM and re-subscribed. MM is downloading several other podcasts just fine. This one, when I click "Update Podcast," just blinks the name and ... nothing.

The podcast is up there, here's results from my domain host.

That's the feed, so far so good. The feed will only list the most recent episode. I can download it in Firefox, and wget gets the file ok.

I notice that the TAL feed lists the media file as "0 bytes." Snap Judgment has correct sizes for the media files. Is that a clue? Is TAL's RSS feed malformed?

I just tried and it worked for me. Firefox shows it has a single episode (#491: Tribes) and in MediaMonkey 4.1 that single episode downloaded fine. That fact that it's listed as 0 bytes for you may be the problem.

That is truly bizarre. When I try to download it, a 27Mb file starts coming.

If you try the RSS feed in any browser or tool, do you see it as "0 bytes" as well, or otherwise?

Firefox isn't showing size at all, neither is IE here, so I can't say.

I'm having the same problem in iTunes and iOS for every episode starting in April. I'm in Canada - maybe they're cracking down on out of country downloads?
