You guys probably already know, but wanted to throw it out there as it's my main way of consuming GB content.
I'm having the same issue.
I did a little testing and if I'm logged in (to the front page), I can pull the xml without a problem. If I'm logged out, it gives me a username/password pop up, but it doesn't take my username and password...
I used to use my email to log in, but that doesn't seem to be the new method. However, neither my email or my current username are accepted, and obviously my password works.
The RSS feed on the podcast page (http://www.giantbomb.com/podcast-xml/giant-bombcast/) works but the one on the RSS page (http://www.giantbomb.com/feeds/podcast) does not. Same issues here with premium feeds, and also unable to save HTML5 videos from my phone with the new site design (which locks out non-premiums), unless there is a save button I am not seeing. Because old mobile site had direct links, I could save from there. That means no current way to view videos offline unless I do some wizardry and file transfers from a proper desktop.
Very odd problem. I can look at the RSS Feed in Chrome here on my desktop and see it's being updated. If I do a refresh in Downcaster it says no new episodes. I've got a huge backlog so I don't want to delete/re-add the RSS feed. I tried manually re-adding the feed and Downcaster told me I'm already subscribed...
I agree in the sense that I would appreciate having uninterrupted feeds, so I can catch up on what I've missed since they went down.
Long term however, a truncated list is almost a necessity. I use the All Vids feed most, and having the high volume feeds by timeframe instead of quantity would be nice... knowing the feed will always have the previous week of content would be awesome. (eg. on a Wednesday you have last week's Mon-Fri, and this week's Mon-Wed)
The RSS feed works if you are logged in to the site, but if I log out in Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer 9 and try to visit one of the RSS feeds it will ask me for my username & password and when I enter it I will get asked again. I have tried to use my username or email in the username field, no difference.
This is how it was for me BEFORE the redesign mind you.
It won't work in Mediamonkey or Miro still.
Can anyone try to visit the RSS feed in any browser while logged out of gb and try to log in there? So I know it's not only me?
@lar: Thanks, i think i figured out the issue. I changed my password to a new alphabetic lowercase password, now it works fine in miro and firefox.
I use Lastpass to generate passwords, my previous one was 12 characters long and had lowercase, uppercase, symbols and numbers. Here is an example of a password like that: Mmw6%2@&up^f
Premium RSS working on Doggcatcher (at least mobile all videos feed)! Moreover, I can still download videos that are previous to those published on the feed as long as I retain the expired feed episodes. That is a way for it to go further back @forcen and @Brackynews.
@snide @rchen While we are posting issues with the subscriber RSS feeds, I just saw this small issue. The feed looks a bit weird in Miro. The image for the RSS feed is the bombcast image, it should be changed to something else possibly. You could also change it so each video has the correct thumbnail in the feed, then it would like this in miro instead of what it looks like now.
Another small RSS issue, the filesizes in the bombcast rss are all wrong.
EDIT: Another small issue, all the names of the suscriber feeds are wrong in the feed, they are all called: "Giant Bomb Video Feed [hd]" with the "This is a subscriber only feed for videos on Giant Bomb" text underneath (in firefox). Please get them names that fit with the videos like "Quick Looks".
