    Unhappy Have unlock key but still getting ads injected before/after my podcasts

    Hi, I have the Beyond Podcast with the unlock key installed on my S8+, but I'm getting a ton of local ads being injected into many of my podcasts.
    What can I do to fix this? I think it started happening within the last few months.
    They are for sure local ads being injected.

    I confirmed I have the unlock key installed.
    Here's an example of one I get with ads.
    http://www.blogtalkradio.com/autolineafterhours/podcast

    When I play the link directly, there are no ads.

    Also getting local ads injected in this podcast.

    Thanks.

    Pretty sure that is something the podcast provider does, not BP.

    But if I follow the feed URL I don't get those ads. Would they treat the download differently through an app vs browser?
    One of the features with the Pro version is listed as "No Ads"

    Even when I emailed support they said...
    There are no ads for paid users. Those are disabled with the Unlock Key. Can you send urls of the feeds you are experiencing ads on?

    To which I provided the URLs above with no ads.
    Unfortunately I haven't heard back from them in quite a while. I guess I could try out another podcast app, but I may never return if it works there.

    There is a difference between downloading the source file and getting a file that was altered to deliver localized ads. Depending on your IP the provider will deliver files that contain "relevant" ads. This is purely location based. The first time I got German ads on an American podcast I was very confused. lol

    Spotify and co are working killing the RSS standard to deliver even more personalized ads in the future like you see on Google or Amazon.

    You should try it out, I'm 99% sure you will have the same ads. Or maybe some other players have a way to block these ads but I doubt it.

    When you access the MP3 file directly it can't know anything about you to generate local advertisements to inject. It's the feed, not BeyondPod.

    Feel free to try another player though.
