Playback problem, constant restarting

Post by nooker » Sat Nov 10, 2018 7:39 pm

I have an LG Stylo 3 running Podcast Addict (I can dig up specifics if needed). Whenever I play a Drabblecast and the app quits or I try to change position for any reason, planned or otherwise, the episode starts over. At this point it won't let me me move to the time it stopped, I just have to start at the beginning hope it remains untouched for entire episode & hope I don't miss anything. The drabblecast is the only podcast that exhibits this behavior, all other podcasts will startup where I left off and allow for fast forwarding and rewinding.

It could be that the LG device cannot handle Apple's {censored}-up M4A format.

If you are downloading the M4A file (feed URL https://www.drabblecast.org/feed/podcast-m4a/), stop and switch to the MP3 format.

The MP3 feed is at: https://www.drabblecast.org/feed/podcast/
