Can’t get RSS feed to work in Podcast Apps


I am having trouble with the link method in both Overcast and Pocket Cast. I copy the link and then replace the User Name / Password. Pocket Cast gives me an error message. Overcast crashes.

    Try resetting your password and exclude special characters.  Try something that is just alphanumeric.  That worked for me.

    Thanks for the advice. I changed the password to an alphanumeric one and it still doesn't work.

    I am having the same problem. Feed no longer works after April 28th. Worked for months just fine. Feed is broken. Can not connect at all.

      In reply to Brad Sams: Whatever happened, On my end it is working again. I did several things. I removed the feed, put it back, disabled anti-virus, re-enabled it and now it works. Thanks!

        In reply to fuzzsdad: As of May 4th it is not working again. There are many with this same problem. I use Grover but others have mentioned Overcast. Server not letting us through.

    Something has definitely changed in the last few days server side :(

    Here's the output from my podcast app.

    Having the same issue with Grover Pro on Win10 Mobile. I noticed it after 5/1. I Unsubscribed but cannot re-subscribe. Grover supports feeds that require user auth. I double checked the UN & PW but it still fails to subscribe. Going through withdrawal here...

      In reply to daveevad: If you read my post below, I forgot to mention I ALSO changed my password and used ONLY alpha numeric characters. As far as I know, mine is still working however very slowly. It takes forever to finally feed an episode and start downloading. No special characters in the password. I use Grover free version.

    So for me on May 6th this is fixed. Episode 144 never showed up in the feed, but whatever, I'll watch it online. Thank you to whoever fixed this.

    Ah dang, I subscribed mainly for the daily podcast. It seems busted. I go to the rss feed with a browser and it doesn't accept my credentials. It's almost as if there's a web server that's hosting the http auth, but whatever data source it's using isn't recognizing my account. I changed my password to alpha numeric characters only and it won't work with that either. Using Grover Pro on a Windows 10 PC.
