Updated Podcast plugin for Volumio

I’ve updated Podcast plugin for Volumio. This updated version includes BBC radio podcasts and some minor bug fix. As you know BBC podcasts are not allowed to access easily their podcasts and there is no public BBC podcast feed RSS url, so I add BBC podcast to this plugin. Some podcast episodes that includes “[UK Only]” at podcast title are played only UK region.

Updated podcast plugin (0.1.0 version) pull request is submitted to Volumio plugin repository. If you want to use this updated plugin, please read podcast collection article https://volumio.org/forum/volumio-plugins-collection-t6251-30.html#p46678 and you can download it.

I have a problem with a podcast link. All the others works fine but this one keep crashing/rebooting my RPI
Someone could help me?
The link is this one btw theminimalists.libsyn.com/rss :blush:

Firstly I would like to thank you for making such a great plugin available for Volumio. Without a podcast plugin, Volumio would only be half as good for me! Thanks a lot!

Secondy, I do have an issue with the sound output of all my podcasts randomly stopping after starting it.

To be more precise:

  • I use a PI Zero with a HiFiBerry DAC+
  • I start playing a podcast and while I see that playback still runs on the webinterface (the seconds counter is still counting), there is no sound anymore.
  • This behaviour is happening with all my podcasts, for example this one here from NPR: npr.org/podcasts/344098539/ … -t-tell-me

Could you help me out her?

I habe the same issue :cry:

I have this problem also

This works well for me playing This American Life on an old Raspberry PI
using the built in audio. I cannot get it to play RadioLab using its Feedburner RSS uri at http://feeds.wnyc.org/radiolab
It will add it fine and display all the episodes as well. When I select one to play, the wheel spins, and during this spinning at about 20 seconds I can hear a faint series of chimes, then the spinning quits without having ever played any content or moving the progress bar. The dev page never show the values populating in the player state at the top. Can anyone help? Any hints or suggestions would be appreciated.
