How to turn off podcast video in the mobile app?

How to turn off podcast video in the mobile app?

Ever since the Ramsey Show Highlights added video it causes subsequent podcast in the “Your Epidodes” list to not play. I send Spotify to the background, but the video embedded Ramsey podcast still kills the other podcast episodes. It is worse and more prevalent when I am at the far end of my WI-FI network.

I don’t have any issues with just audio based podcasts.

Hey there @garchar

 

Thanks for reaching out about this here in the Community. 

 

On mobile, you'll see the option to disable video podcasts while not listening to them on WiFi by heading to Settings > Data saver > Stream audio only. 

 

On desktop, you can either click the X in the video itself or the Show/Hide video button in the lower left corner of the app, next to the title of the currently playing episode. 

 

If you can't see those options, could you send us a screenshot of what you're seeing on your end? You can attach it to your next response by using the Insert image option in the post editor. Make sure not to send any private info.

 

Hope this helps. If you need a hand with anything else, the Community.

I want to be able to turn off video period. Not just when I am using my data plan.

Doesn’t seem likely based on that thread.   In reality it can’t be done.  That was what I was trying to confirm.

I don't want videos to play on WiFi either.. how do i stop the videos while on wifi? (iPhone 15)

You need to take this gesture off or give us parental controls.  My daughter spends all her time watching stupid videos.  Worst experience so far.  I may have to go back to pandora and give them my 18 bucks a month.  Fix it.

Feature not gesture.

Agreed. Fix this issue. I want the option to turn of video, not just on data. This is terrible UX
