I'm seeing more podcasts fail to play on pwa's daily. Pretty sure this is because somewhere in GrapheneOS these ad based shows are using too many redirects or trackers that are on a list.
@adam As far as I can see the problem comes from the fact that the audio is going through some redirects that are HTTP only (I can see that it DOES end up on a https url) - but when the redirect is http only, then the browser is basically saying "Nope! mixed content, bailing out!"
I think @dave actually tried to get it solved for this specific podcast, but not sure how far that got.
But... I actually just did a search for "DH Unplugged" and it's there 3 times, and if I pick
then it works fine, so I think they fixed it, the leftovers are just still in the index! I think I might swap them in the Podfriend database, so the path without numbers will belong to this one.
@martin Cleaned up. There are seriously like 8 different feeds for that podcast that all end up redirecting to feedburner. [sigh]
Yes, http audio basically implies all the surrounding web stuff has to be http (i.e., not SSL) too. Which feels like a very, very short term workaround.
I'm dragging my feet, but will probably have to accept providing a proxy on behalf of http-related podcast media. Tied to when I push podbrowser all the way over to https.
