I saw the listener last week with the problem listening on his Droid. I have the same problem; anybody know the fix?

I am on Android 2.3.4 and I use an App called Pod Trapper to download and listen to podcasts. I am not sure what is causing the error but it is telling me that the file in invalid. I googled it and it has something to do with the file tags. I have tried it with google listen and the native audio player and get the same error. All of my other podcasts work without issue.

To fix it, I downloaded a free app from the Android market called MP3 Tag Editor. I use it to open the downloaded mp3 and add a title to the podcast and leave everythng else blank. After that I have no problem playing it.

I also downloaded an episode onto my computer and copied it with all of the file tag information removed, then sideloaded it to my phone. This worked for me also.

The only difference in the XML between this show & Up & In is where the file is hosted. I've been using archive.org for the embedded player shown above & my familiarity with it. I'll try switching to what Kevin uses and see if that helps

Is the XML where the file tagging informtation comes from? I am able to subscribe and download the files with the RSS feed using the XML. I don't think the XML is the problem.

I don't know podcasting software, but I would have thought the tagging information would be put in through the recording and editing software when the file is created.

I don't do any filetagging in the XML so it must be related to how archive.org handles it?

http://archive.org/download/TowersOfPowerFantasyHouror2Episode4/tpfh4.mp3 is the link they provide when I host the files there. I don't do any file-specific tagging.

We record the file through Skype using Callgraphs. I then take that file into Audacity and split the tracks, then export that mp3 at 44100 rate into my editing software where I produce the show and save it as an mp3 at the same rate.

The Up and In podcast plays for me without issue. Maybe Kevin could tell you whether he manually adds tags to his files becuase I see the tags on the Up and In files.

Listened for the first time today. It's good, really good, not normal fantasy bullshit which I greatly appreciate. Just to let you know the podcast is actually listed differently now, in itunes, than when I initially downloaded it. The only reason I didn't listen sooner was because off the second episode I didn't see any new material. Thankfully the doldrums of travel allowed me to listen to episode two today. Highly recommend for any fellow fantasy pricks.
