Using Overcast, got all of the premium feeds in correctly, but for some reason the Premium Bombcast refuses to show artwork on my Overcast. have deleted and readded it several times, get the episodes fine and all other GB feeds have artwork, just the premium Bombcast. Looked at the RSS and everything seems fine. Anyone else have this?
Overcast just recently switched to a free-with-optional-donations model with version 2.0 so all its formerly-paid features are now available to anyone, so probably more people will start using it as their podcasting app of choice. The issue with the Premium Bombcast missing its album art and artist name is still there. The premium Beastcast's art shows up fine, though.
For me, not using https was the only way to add the premium podcasts. I tried for both the beast cast and giantbomb cast, but would only get a could not find a podcast feed at that address. If I removed the s and just used http then it found it no problem.
Hope this gets fixed cause I enjoy overcast, but that is a big problem.
@jslack@drrocktapusJust chiming in here, I can't get https to work on Overcast for the premium feed either. My password doesn't have any special characters and my display name and log in name are the same (saw that issue on a reddit thread about this). Whenever I enter in the url using https I'm told it can't be found.
Also, I know this isn't Overcast technical support, but I figure I might as well throw this out there incase anybody else has the same issue: No matter how hard I try Overcast will not download podcasts in the background; it will only download podcasts when I open the app. I have background app refresh on, badge app notifications on and I allow Overcast to download off of cellular data but it never grabs any podcasts. Does anybody else have this issue/know how to fix it? I have been unable to find anything helpful online about it.
Sigh. Had this all plugged in not too long ago but recently changed my password (no, I didn't add special characters) and now https isn't working but http is. I generally really like Overcast but how risky is it to use http in it? It's not a password I share with any other sites so I dunno.
I was able to get subscribed to the Bombcast using this: https://USERNAME:PASSWORD@www.giantbomb.com/podcast-xml/premiumbombcast/ but can anyone tell me how to subscribe to the Premium podcasts, specifically Danswers? Thanks a bunch!
Sorry, forgot to mention I tried http://username:email@example.com/podcast-xml/premium/ and it didn't work. Not sure what I might be doing wrong.
I keep seeing Overcast mentioned as a great podcast app, but I've been using Downcast for years and its been incredible. Why do people pay for a yearly subscription to Overcast over a free app like Downcast?? What are the benefits? I must be missing something.
