Sermonaudio.com hosts many podcasts, several of which we listen to
regularly. Three weeks ago,something changed and we no longer can listen
to any of the podcasts hosted by sermonaudio
them. I contacted sermonaudio and they cannot provide any details of any
changes that might have caused this. When we select a particular podcast,
we get the usual list of files. When we select one of the files, we get
the usual album art and the little dot showing the current position in the
file that we are in works as usual. Just no audio.

I am hopeful that someone may be able to determine what happened and
provide a solution to get it going again. Here is the URL of one of the
podcasts:
http://rss.sermonaudio.com/rss_source.rss?sourceid=mohler&filter=mp3&sortby=date
All of the other podcasts that are not hosted by sermonaudio work fine.

The podcasts in the feed seem to use https rather than http. This is happening with many audio feeds as they changeover from http to https.
If you are using Radio with mySqueezebox.com (i.e. no local LMS) - I think https URLs may not be supported.

Do you have a local LMS ? If so what version ?

As per the suggestion by bpa using a SBRadio connected to mysqueezebox.com there is no sound. Just shown as "connecting".

Switched the same player to a local LMS running v.7.9.2 nightly and the link played.

Time for some pi (after the high winds:(, hope you have survived without damage :))

+1 on getting a rasberry pi (probably a 3+ with a hifiberry DAC hat, running picoreplayer) to run LMS 24/7. Sounds complicated, but really simple and lots of step by step instructions available.

However, in the meantime, you can simply install LMS on any computer you have at home, and use that as the server for playing these podcasts through your squeezebox players. Install LMS 7.9.2 from here:
