Problems listening to podcasts:
Some of our listeners have problems listening to our podcasts on the website players. Commonly, the player will play for a few minutes and then restart at the same point, never getting past a certain length of time.
This may be caused for any one of several reasons, such as a slow internet connection, a weak link somewhere between our servers and those belonging to the listener's ISP, or the anti-virus or firewall software on the listener's computer. See this article at the computerhope.com website for more information: Why does my download stop before it is finished?
To resolve this issue, do not play our podcasts from the front page of the website or from the Podcasts page.
Instead, simply click the title for the podcast, which appears above the player. Once you are on the page for that particular podcast, the program you want to listen to will preload, and the program duration should appear in the player (for example, 1:30:25 rather than 00:00).
Once the program duration appears in the player, after a few seconds it should already be downloaded to your computer and it should play uninterrupted.
Before playing another podcast, however, clear your browser cache (sometimes called "temporary internet files"). Often, browser cache is the reason why podcasts seem to get "stuck" at one place and restart from the beginning.
One final method is to use a podcast player. For android devices, go to Google Play and search on the term "podcast", after which a list of podcast players should appear. We have tested our feed with two podcast players on Android which are ad-free: Castify and Simple Podcatcher. Once the app is installed, subscribe to the feed at https://christogenea.org/podcasts/mp3feed. Apple users can add that same feed to the iTunes program, which has been tested and works.
If these solutions do not work, you may have to download our podcasts and play them in a media player on your computer, rather than using the website players. You may download podcasts by right-clicking the file name found beneath the player, and choosing "save link as" or "save target as" on the pop-up menu.
