Hey @horsenut

I didn’t see see a download option, but was able to playback the various podcasts. Occasionally there was a delay when trying to play an episode, but eventually played. Does it work better in private window mode? any more details on how to reproduce this?

I had a LOT of tabs open. I closed a bunch, but still have a lot open. But it’s working now, so apparently the problem was just too many tabs. You can probably tell what my desk and workbench look like…

I replied to you on the forum. Egg on my face.


There could be a possibility the server has a limit on the amount streams per login or ip, just to limit bandwidth.
