I'm in search of a podcatcher for Windows which is accessible and can download multiple episodes of shows. I'm currently using QCast, and have been using it for several years. But more and more lately, I'm encountering issues with it. An increasing number of podcast feeds that I try to add are refused, saying the feed is unrecognized. Incidentally, this issue is also present in QFeed, but I'm more concerned with podcast management at this time.
The other frustrating thing that it does is that sometimes, when I click download all on a given podcast, it just throws errors, saying that the podcasts can't be downloaded. This usually results in me having to end the process from task manager, because if you've got a feed with a couple hundred podcasts, dismissing the dialog for every single one of them is tedious and annoying.
While I'm more than happy to listen to podcasts on my phone with overcast, I also like to keep offline copies of my favorite podcasts, in case my internet goes down, I don't have internet access, or I would just rather scroll through a folder and pick a particular episode that I want to listen to, which is obviously easier to do from a keyboard than a touch screen.
So, does anyone have any suggestions for me as to what podcatcher I can use that will download all episodes in a given feed, and will hopefully be more reliable than QCast? I'd write to the developer, but it's no secret that customer service isn't his strong suit, and that he never replies to inquiries, so I'm not even going to bother, as sad as that is. I did try Juice a few days ago, because I had read that it was accessible. it is, but I can't get it to download anything either. It just sits there at 0% for hours if I try to add files to its cue.
Any other suggestions? Thanks.
