My Question or Issue
Hello, I have an interesting problem:
I create a transient playlist (start listening to one episode of a podcast and add another episode of another podcast into the playback queue).
Scenario A: I listen to those two episode on my Smartphone-Device and everything works as expected.
Scenario B: I create the playback queue and choose my Echo Dot 4th Gen as output device. Suddenly the second episode gets deleted from the queue.
Alternative scenario B: I connect to my Echo Dot as output device before filling my queue. Now I'm not even able to add the episode to my queue.
Alternative scenario C: I have configured Spotify as my one and only provider for music and podcasts. Everything works fine. Except when I ask to play the aforementioned podcast. In this case the podcast is not played from Spotify but from Apple Podcast - where I don't even have an account.
The Podcast that creating this issue is The BBC Global News Podcast.
Since this is the only issue I experience so far, I might assume that this is not a technical problem but something with copyrights?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Through some digging, we have found that there is an OI (ongoing issue) where BBC podcasts currently can't be played through speakers.
You can find more information on the OI here.
There is also a closed idea on this matter that can be found here. Even though its closed, you are able to vote and add comments as it is still being monitored.
I wish I had better news for you, but at least we know what the issue is now.
