screenshot of gPodder GUI showing no new items to download
The RSS file from
seems to be correct.
gPodder doesn't complain about it, just says "No new episodes", but the web browser shows 3 new videos have been added since gPodder last saw something to download.
Log file shows:
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/gpodder/feedcore.py", line 177, in _autodiscover_feed
result = self._parse_feed(url, None, None, False)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/gpodder/feedcore.py", line 274, in _parse_feed
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/gpodder/feedcore.py", line 198, in _check_valid_feed
raise InvalidFeed('unknown feed type')
InvalidFeed: unknown feed type
What's going wrong, and I wonder why gPodder doesn't report in the GUI that it can't handle the feed.
Vimeo support is broken in the release version, the fix is in Git, and will be part of the next gPodder release:
