Re: Podcast Problems: XML Parsing Issues?

Ludek, that site happened, by sheer coincidence, to have had a problem earlier today. At the time of this writing, the site is up and working. I chose that site because it has quite a large number of episodes and so I find it especially prone to subscription failure. More specifically, closing the s...

Re: Podcast Problems: XML Parsing Issues?

Ludek, here's a URL for you: http://podcast.fightingforthefaith.com/FFTF.xml . However, my experience isn't due to a strange site or URL. I see the problem fairly often, but intermittently, with a variety of URLs. The problem is somewhere in the MM code because I can see via Wireshark that when MM s...

Re: Podcast Problems: XML Parsing Issues?

You know best. At least, I've learned I apparently often pause 0.5 seconds between typing the components of a URL, probably because I memorize and type one component at a time. :D

Cheers,

Re: Podcast Problems: XML Parsing Issues?

Maybe the textfield for the URL should be paste-only rather than enterable so that the application doesn't get prematurely excited when the domain has been entered but the path hasn't yet been entered. That'd take some fancy validation handling of events fired by the control, of course. I'm not sure...

Re: Podcast Problems: XML Parsing Issues?

Under 4.1 I get no error but I also get no podcast episodes. MM just grinds for a while but shows no result. UPDATE: Working with Wireshark live while I enter data into MM discloses part of the problem--in fact, maybe the entire problem. MM must fetch the podcast XML file while the dialog box is ope...

Re: Podcast Problems: XML Parsing Issues?

Oops! I see you wrote 4.1. That's where I need to be. I had intended to download and try the latest version and didn't think to look for a beta. I'll try that.

Re: Podcast Problems: XML Parsing Issues?

Yes, that's the point. The other podcast catcher accesses the podcast flawlessly. Clearly there's no problem with the site. (At least, there's no problem at the transport level. There may be some problem with the XML syntax that I haven't yet identified.) And, based on my analysis via Wireshark, the...

Re: Podcast Problems: XML Parsing Issues?

Yes. But, to be clear, that's simply the one I' picking on. I loaded two, both of which failed. In the past, of the hundred or so podcasts I follow perhaps 10-20 have exhibited problems of this sort.

Cheers,

P.S. Thanks for styling the stream as code. I should have thought of that. Cheers,

Problem Downloading Podcasts

I've been here before in previous releases. I've just now revisited MM to check the current status and found that my problem persists: When subscribing to podcasts, I often get the error "There was a problem downloading the following files" with reference to the podcast's XML file. On this forum, th...

Re: AutoPlaylist Mingles Album with Album Artist

Thanks for the tip. It seems that the Playlist search term supports only the conditions equals and not equals rather than contains. But I don't really need the contains condition, so I'm good to go.

Re: MP3 Tunes Locker 1.3 - Updated 12/03/2011

Phooey. I got logged out and then mistyped my user name, so that I don't own my preceding post and so can't edit it. I was going to add a postscript saying that I'd be happy to help with the work of fixing, maintaining, and extending the script if Trixmoto likes. I don't like armchair quarterbacks a...

Re: Sync Woes with HTC 3D

Further study suggests that case #3, above, may be a successful, rather than failed, sync. I think I may have incorrectly extrapolated from the "Catastrophic" error. I was expecting a successful sync operation to pop up or display a message of some sort. But I now see that it doesn't. So I'm not pos...

Re: MP3 Tunes Locker 1.3 - Updated 12/03/2011

Okay, I see what needs to be fixed and think it should be simple. I used the MP3Tunes mobile player (http://www.mp3tunes.com/locker/cb/index_pda) to find the URL of a song. Inspecting a song URL, I determined the correct value of the partner_token attribute. In a sample URL created by the script, I ...

Re: MP3 Tunes Locker 1.3 - Updated 12/03/2011

I've played with this problem a bit and I've noticed one thing that seems wrong. The value of the partner_token attribute is doubled in the URL. However, correcting that problem is not enough to make the script work. UPDATE: My observation was complicate by an unknown factor and was incorrect. Corre...

AutoPlaylist Mingles Album with Album Artist

I'm trying to create an AutoPlaylist for unplayed episodes of several favorite podcasts. This sounds easy enough but I've run into a problem. The New AutoPlaylist dialog box, on its Advanced tab, lets me choose Album/Series/Podcast as a search criterion. But, surprisingly, the values that appear in ...
