We recently highlighted a problem which some users had experienced after upgrading to iTunes 11.1. This new version of iTunes deals differently with podcasts, and many of our members use iTunes to manage their podcasts, so it has had a significant effect on part of our community. We’ve been trying to come up with various workarounds over the past few weeks, and with the launch of the updated iTunes 11.1.1 in the past few days we’re pleased to offer a video which should help you access the content. The video can be seen below, and our step-by-step instructions are listed too in case anyone has any problems with the video.
- If you’ve been having problems where iTunes crashes when trying to access your Radio Lingua members’ podcasts, you’ll need to start by deleting the feeds which are causing the problems. Note that this may delete existing content in your library. You have the option of keeping the files on your hard disk, so please choose whichever option suits you best: if you have a slow internet connection you may want to avoid having to download all the files again. To delete the feed, quit from iTunes, disconnect from your network and then launch iTunes again.
- Choose the My Podcasts tab and select the podcast feed in iTunes. Right-click or control-click on the feed and select “delete” from the drop-down menu.
- Now connect to your network again.
- Go to the appropriate product page and click on the right feed for your product. This feed will open in iTunes again and you’ll be asked for your username and password.
- Note that we’ve updated all the feeds to request username and passwords for radiolingua.com - not our older media server radiolinguamedia.com – so if you’re asked for radiolinguamedia.com you’re not using the correct feed!
- iTunes has changed the way in which podcasts are organised, so you’ll need to click the Old Episodes button in My Podcasts view in order to see the entire list of files.
- Add whichever files you need!
