OT: Android + WTKA?

Submitted by Augger on September 23rd, 2010 at 6:37 PM

Hey all,

Just got my first smart phone yesterday and am having a blast learning all about it.  One of the things I was most excited about when I thought about owning a smart phone was that I would be able to listen to the various podcasts at WTKA and from Brian when he does his thing at various spots on the net.  So anyway, I have an android, I fired up the WTKA website went to the podcast page, and started listening in.  It was awesome.  For about 30 seconds.  Then the phone stopped playing the podcast and the 'podcasting' bar up and disappeared and would not reappear as long as I stayed on the same segment.  Just wondering if anyone else knows how to make those WTKA podcasts work on an android...

Thanks,

Aug

I'll tell you what I do to listen to WTKA on my Android (1.6, so flash isn't an option). I load the address http://www.michiganupdate.com/wtka.xml into my Google Reader account, and add it to my "Listen Subscriptions" folder (only available if you've added the Listen app to your phone already). Then they come in to the Google Listen app, which is phenomenal for listening to podcasts. I still don't have an option for listening to WTKA live, though.

Someone here actually created an account specifically for WTKA. Go to www.yourmuze.fm (not .com). Username: Mgoblog

Only issue is that WTKA cuts to nuttin but commercials in the last hour before kickoff, but the other times are pretty sweet.
