Having installed v 2.2.2 -a1 of Juice in Windows 7, most RSS feeds (eg from the BBC and rtve Spain) are working fine, However, the feed from :-
http://www.newsinslowspanish.com
will not pick up. Even if typed in, the RSS feed :-
http://newsinslowspanish.libsyn.com//rss.xml
appears in the subscription listing as:-
Feed ID 16 at http://newsinslowspanish.libsyn.com//rss.xml
It then gives the messsage 'No episodes found'
Can anyone advise how to overcome this? - or suggest another freeware podcatcher (other than the bloated i Tunes)

Is anyone still updating Juice?

Thanks

  • I'm surprised you got it running at all. I got a new desktop with Windows 7 and Juice would not download and install at all. I ended up using Ziepod but I would be happy to go back to Juice if it were made compatible with the new OS.

    Have got this one sorted now.Not sure quite how, but I have now managed to get the programme to download using Juice (I didn't want to use iTunes as it is a very bloated piece of software).
    I am detailing in case it helps someone else:-

    The original rss feed link that I right clicked in FireFox and then 'copy link location' and pasted into Juice showed as http://newsinslowspanish.libsyn.com//rss.xml (note double //).
    This then listed as Feed ID 16 at http://newsinslowspanish.libsyn.com//rss.xml and gave the message "no episodes available"

    I then noticed that all the BBC podcasts ended /rss.xml - tried that with News in Slow Spanish - didn't work.
    Also noted that 'Notes in Spanish' p'cast ended /rss - tried that with News in Slow Spanish - didn't work.
    eventaully tried ending /rss. (note the full stop after rss) = works!
    Don't ask me why!

    Ref the other comment:- my Windows 7 is the 32 bit version. Don't know whether Juice behaves differently with 64 bit version

    Has anyone been able to get Juice to work in Windows 7? I've used it for years on XP but when I install it on Windows 7, while it appears at first to work, when I ask for a scan it seems to find files to download it cannot download any of them. It creates a root directory, to put the downloads but it can't seem to create the sub-directories to put the downloads in.
