In normal circumstances, Ziepod plays podcast episodes since it know where to look to play those audio files. In other words, when new episodes are detected, retrieved information also includes explicit location of each episode so that Ziepod can play or download it directly from its located position, which is remote server on the Internet.
However, this may not be the case all the time. Some feeds may not include that explicit location of associated media file. Instead, it may give you a link to a web page where you have to visit in order to watch/play that associated media file. This is especially the case when video feeds are considered.
For this specific case, Ziepod+ provides a feature which is called 'Remote Media Link Checking'. As its name implies, Ziepod+ can automatically check pointed web pages for embedded media files and extract the links, if there is any. This automation saves your time and lets you directly play that media via Ziepod+ whenever you want.
Following help topics will show you how to activate this feature for a subscribed feed and how to watch BBC News in Video, thanks to this feature.
Bear in mind that Ziepod+ is not specifically designed to watch BBC News. As long as 'Remote Media Link Checking' feature works on BBC web pages, you can watch BBC News via Ziepod+. Here we are just showing how to make use of this feature in order to watch BBC News via Ziepod+
