Windows Phone Preview OS Issues


Podcasts App Not Allowing Downloads


Maybe it is just me..I cannot get the Podcast app to download any podcasts to the phone for offline use. I made the appropriate setting changes (I think)..Any guidance would be helpful. Leo
Update: I just subscribed to a series and it downloaded it via a subscription..but if I find an ad-hoc podcast the download icon is greyed out..
Not sure what "ad-hoc" is but Rob Greenlee of PodcastOne (and formerly head of Windows Phone podcast) told me there are some compatibility issues with Bing, the Podcast app, and the various RSS feeds that are being worked on which is preventing some podcasts
from being subscribed/opened right now. I am feeling your pain. There are several podcasts that I'm not able to listen to that were my "regulars" before.
Hello lfred150:
Thank you for posting to the forum regarding the issues you are having with podcasts and downloads. I have confirmed that the option to download is not available unless you first subscribe to the podcast. I by no means have checked all the podcasts
but in my searches I have not been able to find any Podcast that does not have an option to subscribe.
With that said, I would be interested in knowing the titles of some podcasts you have found that do not have the option to subscribe and then subsequently download. This may come down to something that needs to be addressed with the individual podcast
producers.
I would also like to encourage you to leave additional feedback and suggestions regarding how you would like to see podcasts work on the phone
here. This is the best place to make your voice heard and impact change when it comes to the final release of 8.1, future Windows Phone updates and future Windows phone
products.
Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.
Mark W.
