    I just want to heap a little praise, here... I've been using drPodder since just about it's inception and this is just an awesome app! I like to listen to podcasts on my way to/home from work (~45 mins each way) and prior to this, I would download the podcasts on my PC, copy them to a SD Card (or directly when I got the Pre) and then play them from my Treo/Pre's built in music player.

    This was tedious and I had to remember to copy the new podcasts over or else I had nothing. And then, when I would listen to the podcasts, the music player didn't have a bookmark... so any time the app closed, I would have to manually navigate to where I thought I left off.

    Now, with drPodder, I have to do nothing! I set up my podcast feed and that's it! Podcasts are automatically downloaded to my phone.. the player remembers which podcasts I've listened to and where I left off. Simply awesome!

    If an an occasional glitch pops up here or there - they are quickly addressed by drnull and he responds to questions and problems with the best attitude I've seen in these boards.

    So kudos, drnull! You have my utmost gratitude and respect!

    I am having issues with Dr.Podder.

    I play BOL netcast and the Pause option is no longer there it just streams with no way to pause it? I never had this issue before with this App or The BOL feed.

    Also when I try to resume play it just play from beginning?

    ANy ideas of what could be the problem?
    Anyone else experience similiar issues?

    Any ideas of a fix ?

    I think I may have found a minor bug in drPodder's "Episode Title Replacements" function:

    The NBC Nightly News podcast (feed address here) has the following episode title format: "NBC Nightly News (audio) - ...". When I try to replace "(audio)" the brackets don't get replaced - only "audio" is replaced. It appears that somehow drPodder doesn't like the brackets.

    Not a big deal at all though.

    First of all I want to say that this is my favorite non-phone-function app on my Pre, so thank you for it.


    QUICK SUMMARY: I'm having the same "Buffering minus text" problem as dbeta.

    After the webOS 1.4 update, I did a webOS Doctor on my phone. I re-installed DrPoddder, now called DrPodder HB. However, not the app is non-functional for me. Everyime I download a podcast and click on it, the screen changes to the play screen (with the podcast synopsis showing) and the little box comes up that normally says "Connecting..." or "Buffering..." but there is no text inside the box, and the podcast never plays. This same thing happens when I choose to stream the podcast rather than playing it. I have un-installed and re-installed the app, and have restarted my phone, all to no avail. Has anyone else had this problem, and what can I do? DrPodder is such a major reason why I even have a smartphone, and I'd hate to lose that functionality.

You now see all the episodes still there.
    1) was that all correct?
    2) what is your "View:" filter? (New/ALL/etc)
    3) are the episodes that you listened to still downloaded? downloaded episodes will have either a (still marked as new) or (marked as old) button. non-downloaded episodes (ready to stream) will have
    (new) or (old) as the button.
    4) is the blue progress bar for all the episodes you listened to all the way to the right?
    5) when you click on one of the episodes you've listened to, it loads up, plays (for a second) and then goes back to the list. Does it get removed from the list then?
    6) is the text for the episodes you've listened to in the list black (not grey)?

    Thanks for your help, I can't duplicate this, so I have to get some more info from you.
    1) You are correct.

    2) My view filter is New.

    3) The episodes are not still downloaded. They do not appear in the Downloaded view filter and they are not on my Pre when I look (using Internalz) where they should be.

    4) Yes, the blue progress bar is all the way to the right.

    5) If I try to resume one of the episodes I've listened to, it buffers and then starts from the beginning of the episode.

    6) All of the episodes that appear paused are in grey.

    Let me know if you need anything else. I'm happy to help!

    The replacement is actually a regular expression. I know, that's not obvious. Therefore, you'll have to \ escape the '(' and the ')'...

    The \ can be found under the "Sym" button on the keyboard. So your replacement should be
    Replace: \(audio\)
    With: ____ <--- I guess you're leaving this blank.

    I really don't understand what's going on here. If anybody who is having this issue has the SDK installed and would like to do some troubleshooting for me, please contact me at support@drPodder.com

    I have these same symptoms and have found if I download episode I can then play it in music remix. I know this is awkward but it is still an acceptable work around until bug is fixed

    Google "gervais podcast"
    Click the first link
    Click "Get the podcast via XML"
    Note the address in the URL.
    Put that address into drPodder

    Ok, fine, it's http://podcast.rickygervais.com/podcast.xml

    And if you want to do the community a favor, when you find a podcast like this that isn't in the directory (you did search for it first, right?), you can go add it yourself:
    DigitalPodcast Add Podcast page

    EDIT:
    If, however, you are referring to some pay podcast that the publisher is distributing through iTunes only... sorry. Complain to the podcast producer and tell that that you're mad as heck and you're not gonna take it anymore. Free the bits!!!

    Unless you have webOS 1.4, please do not upgrade unless you are feeling adventurous or would like to help me with debugging. Users running drPodder 0.5.3 on webOS 1.3.5 may not have the ability to stream reliably anymore (as if it's ever been reliable...)

    Because of changes to the audio system, I can no longer support webOS versions below 1.4. I tried to fix streaming in 1.4, but that broke it in 1.3.5. And since I don't have a 1.3.5 device to test on anymore and am not willing to flash back and forth between 1.4 and 1.3.5 constantly to troubleshoot, I can't support previous webOS releases.

    If you are running 1.3.5, can access your Pre's command line, and would like to help me troubleshoot the problems, contact me at support@drpodder.com and I will gladly work with you to troubleshoot.

    drPodder v0.5.3 (3/4)
    • Now under GPL license
    • Fixing streaming problems in webOS 1.4
    • New scheduling options: (daily/weekly at a certain time)
    • Allow 1x downloads
    • Add/Edit feed page now saves on backswipe instead of requiring you to tap the Update button
    • Fix bug with "Hide From OS" option not being saved
    • Fix bug with background updates - sometimes the update would be terminated before the process finished writing to the DB
    • Because of above, notifications are now required so preference was removed
    • Fix bug where downloaded podcasts would retain a bookmark at the end after finished

    Notice all the bugs fixed in 0.5.3 Also, I wanted to wait for webOS 1.4 to come out so I knew how severe the planned audio changes were. As I expected, they caused a bit of trouble. At this point, I'll probably just have to put it in the catalog as a 1.4 required app. That's fine and all, just annoying that Palm had to break audio so badly. They claimed that it would be backwards compatible and be just fine, but we didn't see that.

    Additionally Palm didn't like my CC license. Apparently creative commons wasn't meant for software. Who knew? And GPL is preferred by most OSS folks anyways, I believe.

    So I hope to submit this weekend.

    I had to WebOS Doctor, and I'm reinstalling. The only program that seems to be giving me trouble is DrPodder....it's an essential app for me. Any reason I'd have an install failure using Preware? The IPKG Log includes something like ""Perhaps you need to run 'ipkg update'?"

    drnull,
    you are great and drpodder is similarly great. Looking forward seeing the 0.5.3 update. Thanks for all the hard work.

    I can't find the update in PreWare yet. Feeds updated, had other updates today too.

    Seriously, this App is insanely awesome. Even with the bugs some have had this is the most useful app for me in the catalog. I use it on commute in and out, sometimes at work, at home alot just fantastic. Especially ever since i found the wifi download unleash patch which makes the files download in an instant Dr Podder has been even better. There are a few thousand apps, mostly not worth paying for, but this one i would pay double for. thanks Dr. Null for all the hard work!

    FYI, I think the 1.4 upgrade must have removed the wifi speed limitation... my podcasts are downloading very fast now and I don't have that patch installed.

    Thanks for all the hard work you are putting into this App! I love using it and am always showing it off to friends.

    Are you going to put it in the Preware feeds? Or are you going to work on just have it in the Palm Store?

    Thanks, Tim
