Thread: Can I stream podcast episodes from a password-protected feed?

    Can I stream podcast episodes from a password-protected feed?


    One of the shows I listen to has a premium feed that is password-protected. Downloading episodes and playing them from device storage works beautifully through BeyondPod, but trying to stream episodes fails and gives me a very helpful "Playback Error" message. Is this a known issue? Is a fix incoming?

    Thanks for your attention.

    Unhappy Still No Streaming for password protected Feeds


    The problem is still there in version 4.2.41, the streaming do not use a proper auth header.

    Except for the streaming, the password protected feed do not cause any problem, even download is possible. Here is a normal server log.

    Code: - username [10/Jun/2019:17:24:02 +0000] "GET /podcast/MDH-2016/11739-01.02.2016-ITEMA_20902383-1.mp3 HTTP/1.1" 200 28499968 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; U; en-us; BeyondPod 4)"
    Now here is a server log while streaming.

    Code: - - [10/Jun/2019:17:24:09 +0000] "GET /podcast/MDH-2016/11739-01.04.2016-ITEMA_20950851-1.mp3 HTTP/1.1" 401 188 "-" "SonyE5823 Build/32.4.A.1.54 stagefright/1.2 (Linux;Android 7.1.1)"
    We can see the auth header is missing and the user-agent is different while streaming (leaking a few technical infos of my phone to the remote server, btw). Here is the server log which answered a 401.

    I am a Beyondpod user (with unlocked key purchased). I hope you will have a look.
