    If I create a Favorite with this Mark Levin Podcast URL https://audioboom.com/channels/3996073.rss.
    It will show all the podcast as a Favorite and with the hack below they are playable on SB Receiver.
    Horrible hack to play the https URL in LMS 7.8 - this is just proof of concept not suitable for general use.

    Added line prefixed by "+"

    In routine handleFeed line 604 in file Slim/Web/XMLBrowser.pm
    Code:
    		# Podcast enclosures
    		if ( my $enc = $streamItem->{'enclosure'} ) {
    			$url = $enc->{'url'};
    +			$url =~ s/^https:\/\//http:\/\//;
    		}
    edit:

    This approach also works for Chris Moyles podcast problem in this thread http://forums.slimdevices.com/showth...st-not-playing

    Thanks for the feedback.

    bpa, does your proof of concept "hack" require LMS or does it work with the SB Radio only?

    I might consider taking this on if it does what I need since Podcasts are the main reason I use the SB Radio.

    Thanks again.

    The main purpiose of the proof of concept was to show that
    1. You stated that URL did not work using http - this is wrong or you misunderstood my suggestion.
    2. the statement by mherger about using http instead of https "that's default behaviour (and has been so for years). But more and more
    offerings insist in using https." is clearly not working in this case.

    My proof of concept was to show that by replacing https by http for podcasts - it is likely that many podcasts will still play.

    My hack is needed asI don't understand (haven't investigated) why current LMS behaviour as expected by Michael (replace https by http) does not work.

    It is likely this hack will not work for all podcasts.
    1. If you are using SB Radio with mysb.com then hack or similar has to be implemented in mysb.com
    2. If you are using Touch with its inbuilt LMS - then it should be possible to issue a patch for this specific issue.
    3. If you are using an SB Player with latest LMS 7.9 in a local server - then you don't need the hack as I think the LMS will handle https (probably via proxied satreamign)
    4. This hack is needed if you want to use 7.9 with direct play of streams which are indicated to be https
    5. This hack is needed to work with LMS 7.8.*

    edit:

    If you are running Windows LMS - you will not be able to install the hack.

    Use msb.com for podcasts; don't use LMS--losing access to podcasts.

    I can get podcasts on my phone using podcast apps, but they don't work on my SB radio using msb.com. I tried a suggestion on another thread that we use URLs with https:// and just drop the "s".

    I tried this on http://feeds.feedburner.com/jimhightower . It did not work.

    Is there ever going to be a fix for this?

    Hey, I do not use LMS too and everything works okay. Have you solved your problem?

    There won't be a solution for mysb.com only users: the problem is in the
    players' firmwares. For older players (Classic, Boom, Transporter) it
    might technically impossible to fix it, and for the newers, well, it's
    simply very unlikely going to happen.

    The simplest way I'm seeing is to get a Raspberry Pi, install LMS on it,
    and use it to proxy those streams for you.

    Good grief! I'm a little old lady. If I want to run this podcast off another gadget, I can run it off my phone or tablet plugged into my SB radio. I don't need to build another gadget.

    I fear what you are telling me is that the useful life of my squeezebox coming to an end and that it is not going to be supported as the technology evolves.
