Issues playing podcasts and audiobooks

2017-11-30, 14:16 PM

I am having issues playing podcasts (podcast republic) and audiobooks (audible).  I've tried downloading to the SD and internal memory, and I have issues either way.  I play most of them at 1.2 and every once and awhile the player will skip about 10 seconds of speaking.  I haven't been able to determine a pattern yet either.  Is anyone else having a similar issue?

Well the issue seems to occur only when I play podcasts in the car, hooked up to the audio dongle.  I can't get BT to work in my old VW.  I tried another podcast app and it also skipped.  So I think it's either a battery optimization setting or other setting, or it's an audio dongle problem.

I use Podcast Republic but usually at normal speed. I'll test this and see if I have the same problem. You say this is with a wired connection only? (I'm guessing that by audio dongle you mean the USB-C-to-3.5 mm connector?)

Yes, wired connection only.  Yes, the USB-C to 3.5 mm connector.  I am going to try TuneIn radio next at lunch.

TuneIn radio also skips.  I am downloading the podcasts, not streaming.  It skips when I download it to internal memory and when I download to the SD card.  So I'm thinking it's an issue with the connection to the USB-c to 3.5mm thing or maybe I need to change the battery optimization setting on something.  The podcast and audiobook apps are already set as not optimized so it would have to be some other app.

Appears to be a known issue with the technology - clock jitter.  So now I need to decide whether to take the phone back to Verizon and get a Samsung or live with it.

We all know very well that generally, Audiobooks provide another way to take a good read anywhere you want to go, as listening to the latest bestseller while on a long trip, trying a non-fiction piece while doing the dishes, or checking out the latest self-help hit or celebrity biography during a daily workout.

 

Hence, here I want to introduce some best free and cheaper audiobook apps and services, where you can listen to audiobooks without paying a penny or for a much cheaper cost as compared to Audible.


Here's the list: Best Audiobook apps
