App version: x.y.z (state whether from Google Play/F-Droid/Custom built APK)
3.1(?) From the app store
Android version: 5.x (Please mention if you are using a custom rom!)
Opens and plays
Opens but will not play
First occurred: (e.g. about x days/weeks ago)
On upgrade to current version
Steps to reproduce:
Environment: (Settings you have changed (e.g. Auto Download). “Unusual” devices you use (e.g. Bluetooth headphones). Did you select another media player?)
I can see all episodes and select them but not a single one will play. The app seems to try but then just stops - app doesn’t seem to crash and it doesn’t close.
Tried to download then pkay, didn’t work either.
Looks like 3.1.0 is the current version on the Play Store. I’m enrolled in the beta so I actually have 3.1.1 but I don’t recall having any issues on 3.1.0 either on my Pixel 7a.
Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app? Sounds like maybe something in the database got corrupted. The other option if you don’t want to lose your play history, etc. would be to contact the Dev team and provide your database and have them take a look.
Not being able to play is not something that could be caused by a database corruption. I would rather try different networks. Also make sure to disable everything that could mess with the network connection, like VPNs, ad blockers, secureDNS, Blockada, PiHole, etc.
Thank for the thought, that was the first thing I did (uninstall and reinstall), but that hasn’t made any difference.
I also tried going back to the old version but it doesn’t recognise the database I exported
TBH it is a definite bug and connecte to downloading/playing of the podcasts as I’m unable to download on any connection.
I’ve now moved to the dark side (Google) as Im out of time to continue troubleshooting.
Ive already tried those and nothing plays via the app - they’re all fine on Google so there’s no doubt in my mind.
Sorry but I can’t make the time to keep testing different routes to get something working when i know how it should work and it doesn’t.
Must admit I’ve little patience for tech now, which doesn’t help - too many years at the coal face dealing with tech that doesn’t work!
