Why won’t the episode play?
The most common reason an episode won’t play in your browser, is because an extension you have installed is blocking it. Common examples of this are any sort of ad/content blocking extensions. The best way to test if this is the case is to enter private browsing (incognito) mode in your browser, and attempt to play the podcast again. Alternatively you can try temporarily disabling any extensions you have that might cause issues. Some other reasons why the browser media player won’t play a podcast are:
- The episode may have been removed by the podcast author.
- There may be a problem with the podcast server or your internet connection.
- Some browsers require you to install additional software to play audio and video files.
