    "Terrible for podcasts."

    July 15, 2009  |   By Solaris_User

    Pros

    It playes the file.

    Cons

    Using version 1.2:
    It does not work with many subscription feeds ( http://freetalklive.com/netcast.xml ) With the ones it does work on, it will continue to re download songs every time because it's not smart enough to know it already has them.

    Summary

    This is the same behavior that the older version had that we were promised a fix for. The software is just S***, don't use it. There are many alternatives out there that actually work for this. (Rhythmbox is one)
