Podcast Issues (Debug Log Included).....

Unread post by jsgates » 02 Nov 2015, 15:26

I'm not sure what issue is with Podcasts but they have been broken for me since the 5.X builds of Madsonic. I have included a debug log below. I am running a completely fresh installation of the latest 6.0 build of Madsonic. For some some reason Madsonic does not like it when I try to specify my own custom directory for Podcasts. However, it only seems to hate this for playback purposes. I can add the RSS URLs into the Podcast receiver and Madsonic does successfully download my podcast episodes to the custom folder I have specified (so it does have read & write access to this folder. not a permissions issue (Ubuntu server share where all the rest of my media is). However, when I try to playback a podcast I get the errors listed below in the included debug log. This is driving me insane. I've about given up on using Madsonic for Podcasts. I have no idea what the issue could be. Back in the old 4.x versions I vaguely recall doing a tweak to create a shortcut to Podcasts in the left treeview pane, but I don't see how that could affect a completely clean installation of 6.0 Madsonic. Any ideas on why the Podcasts download successfully, but Madsonic can't find them to play them?

I think something has to be going on in the Podcast receiver code. I would be interested to see if this is an issue in the latest builds of Subsonic as well.
