The latest Podcastle episode 152 contains two enclosures. Gpodder only downloads the first one.
Can you post the URL of the feed here in addition to the RSS feed data?
The URL is in the field URI
This is an issue for me too - http://feeds.feedburner.com/OpenMetalcast contains both an MP3 and Ogg enclosure, yet gPodder only downloads the MP3 one (which comes first).
I'm using gPodder 2.14 on Xubuntu 11.04 (Natty).
With multiple audio enclosures, I would expect gPodder to download them all or offer a choice of which one(s) to download. With this feed, I'd like to be able to choose just the Ogg enclosure, but I appreciate that this is a very specific requirement, so can you update gPodder to download all (audio) enclosures?

You can set preferred mime types using the "mimetype_prefs" configuration option. List mime types that you would like to prefer over other types in this configuration option. I.e. if you want to prefer OGG over any other type, you can set this to "audio/ogg" (or whatever the feed lists as the mimetype for these files). You can have multiple preferences, i.e. "audio/ogg,audio/mpeg", etc. - all the mime types that appear are preferred over non-listed ones, and the ones that appear are ranked based on their position (first has more priority than second, etc..).
Having more than one enclosure per item is something that we don't support at the moment, as it's a very rare case, and would make the generic case (one file per item) much more difficult to use (i.e. we would need to provide UI for selecting to download/delete/play the downloaded file for each enclosure. Also, some feeds provide e.g. images as enclosures in addition to audio files, and in this case, the user might not want to care about this. I think the mimetype_prefs option is a good way to fix the issue for the "same content, different format" type of multi-enclosure feeds.
Here's another feed with this problem: http://blip.tv/day9tv/rss/itunes
Each item contains three enclosures, different encodings of the same content: m4v 360p, flv 433p, and m4v 720p. I'd really like to specify that I want the highest quality version, but gpodder will only download the first one it sees.
Thanks for the awesome program!
*** Bug 1441 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
This bug has been filed against a 2.x version of gPodder and is not a feature request (according to the severity field at least). Closing as WONTFIX, as gPodder 2.x has been superseded by gPodder 3.x (the last feature release of gPodder 2.x happened in 2011, and the last bugfix release in December 2012).
If this bug still exists in gPodder 3.7.0, please reopen and update the version field accordingly. Thanks!
