iCloud doesn't like ChinesePod

Posted by psamet July 4, 2015 in the Group General Discussion .

So I primarily listen to ChinesePod using the Music app on my iPhone. I download the podcasts from the site and then sync them to my phone via iTunes. I like this method because I can keep them organized in playlists, and having them offline doesn't eat up my phone's data limit.


As you may know, Apple recently released their new streaming music service. In order to take full advantage of this, I switched on the iCloud Music Library option on my phone. HUGE MISTAKE. I lost nearly all of my CP podcasts, because they are apparently not elligible for iCloud. Moreover, I could no longer sync any new podcasts to my phone the old-fashioned way. So I had to turn off iCloud.


Has anyone run into this problem? Is there a way to keep both iCloud and my ChinesePod library? Or is there a better way to listen to CP podcasts (offline, mind you) without going through iTunes?
