Audio fro one second and then nothing

I recently reset my phone as it was laggy.

I formatted my SD card.

I reinstalled Doggcatcher form Play store.

I subscribed to my favourite podcasts. They downloaded to phone.

When I play a downloaded podcast there is a pause of 5-10 seconds then the audio plays for one second and then... nothing.

Streaming podcasts works fine.

Please help me. I like doggcatcher but still find your SD card management a real pain. Please install a big button that says: I WANT TO USE MY SD CARD FOR EVERYTHING. I don't want to mess around with file paths and folder managers. I didn't pay for an app to have to do all of that, I could use a free app if I wanted to manual manage everything. I think next phone I buy will be iphone as then i can use itunes. Android and podcasts are still a real mess. I listen to 4-7 podcasts a day so please save me 700¢ so I don't have to buy an iphone!!!

SD card defective

After reformatting the card, it may still be defective, try a new card to verify - If the problem is not the card and your device is a Blu, Elephone,Fairphone,Freetel,Gionee, Huawei, Lenovo, Otium, RCA Viking, Wiko, Xiaomi & Zest all are probably running a custom ROM version of Android that is incompatible with DC’s features

For those devices running Lollipop from version 1.2.4133 of DC and up a workaround would be to disable the variable speed feature (In the DC Navigation Menu>Settings>Audio Player)

The next option is to change the player for DC from “Integrated” (Internal) to “External” (In the DC Navigation Menu>Settings>Audio Player) Press “Audio Player” change to “External Player”

For devices running Marshmallow..enable Android Marshmallow media player (DC Menu>Settings>Advanced>Experimental)

Where is this option in the Amazon Store version of DC? This 1 sec on and 10 sec off problem needs a fix. The eternal audio player is a colossal pain in the rear. If there is no fix, then the VBR option (that is no option) should be enabled.

RE: Kindle Fire

I responded to you here "Kindle Fire" http://www.doggcatcher.com/node/6460#comment-16249 - The update has been submitted to Amazon for approval, but they take a long time to approve app updates

Again, where is the option to enable "Android Marshmallow media player" in the Amazon version? Has that also been submitted for approval?

Very good, thanks for the follow-up. We are looking forward to the Amazon update. DC is one of my favorite apps, and I hate to see it have serious performance issues because of the upgrade in the FireHD OS. We appreciate the support on this forum.

The current version of the Fire OS is based on Lollipop, so the Android Marshmallow media player isn't an option, just the ability to disable the variable speed feature..with this option DC will use the embedded Fire OS (Android) media player for audio & video playback

Once the OS is updated to a version of Marshmallow, the experimental media player will be available
