Using pocketcast on Android. Downloading of other premium podcast from the feed works fine. Strangely enough, the size of the bombcast is usually indicated to only be a few KB while other podcasts on the premium feed correctly display the actual size.
I'm having the same problem with Doggcatcher on Android. I can download every other podcast from the premium feed except for the Bombcast.
A clue came in the form of this error message:
"java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Illegal character in path at index 57: http://v.giantbomb.com/podcast/Giant_Bombcast_04_08_2014_[Premium]-04-07-2014-3324709291.mp3"
I'm not sure what changed on the feed but it maybe it's the square brackets.
Just signed up to GB and can't get the premium to work with my U/P using the URL above with Pocketcasts, says that the search failed as this doesn't appear to be a podcast feed URL.
Has anyone had any success getting the premium podcasts working on the Android PocketCast app?
edit: literally 2 seconds after i post i realise i'd left the trailing / off the URL. As you were :/
If people still have a problem with adding premium podcasts on podcast addict (might also work on other apps)
As a lot of people have said you have yo add your username and password to the URL. Easiest way is to log in to giantomb on your phone go to your premium podcast via the browser not the app and when your on the actual podcast site via the browser click the rss feed button and it should take you to the app with the URL. Then just edit the link juat copu this and edit in your username http://username:firstname.lastname@example.org/podcast-xml/premium/
That should do It. when I tried to do it without going through the browser to the actual podcast player on the site it would not work but when I added the rss feed from that specific podcast player site it worked perfectly
