I was happy to hear that using Podcaster I’d be able to get your Premium content downloaded directly to my iPhone. However, when I launched Podcaster and then entered your podcast URL feed://www.macobserver.com/tmo/podcast/premium/mac_geek_gab/aac/ then entered my username and password in the spaces for this underneath the URL it failed to import w a 404 error. Any suggestions? Love the show!

w no success

I used http://username:password@www.macobserver.com/tmo/podcast/premium/mac_geek_gab/aac/

and that worked for me. There was a note in the latest podcaster release notes that said they added direct support for passwords, too, so maybe that will help.

Developer of Podcaster here.

Edrademd: The original link started with feed:// and that was the reason the app didn’t import it correctly. The current app store version of Podcaster 3.7.1 has a login button on the import screen so you can enter credentials. No more reason to use the work around Dave mentions. Let us know if you still have trouble.
