    The error message here is not from the pcast module. It seems to be coming from the accessibility block that you have installed on your site. You may want to ask there

    Thx. Works. But works only for link "RSS feed for this activity" if choose "Subscribe in iTunes" still doesnt work.
    The link on rss.pcast not same on "RSS feed for this activity" For example on Rss feeds link http://server/rss/file.php/466816/2cf445eda134f9a67192abd417ec591a/pcast/3/0/rss.xml but on rss.pcast href="http://server/rss/file.php/466816/a28b772a390c2a65c9d296e368f73245/pcast/3/2810/0/rss.xml"

    Is it possible to restrict from video upload, to use only audio formats? We have a separate video system with moodle integration, and want no video files uploaded straight to the moodle server.

    At present, It can get files from any available Moodle repository. However, once MDL-53240 is completed, I can add the ability to restrict the types of files that users can upload to the activity. If you add a request to the bug tracker, I'll work on adding that feature for the next release. (

    I have a problem with the video size
    the video size is bigger than my web tile width (I'm using campus theme) and so the users are unable to see the video thumbnail and also the file descriptions
    how can I limit the video module size in percent of the tile width or pixel ?

    I have problems with the PodCast RSS feeds, both the regular feed and the iTunes feed. The regular feed renders a blank page and iTunes says that the file could not be found on server.
    The other feeds (from forum) works as expected. Anyone else here having RSS feed problems or any idea about this?
    I use Moodle 3.2.4 and Podcast 3.2 (2016111000)

    Please make sure that the user posting the episode is actually enrolled in the course and the episode has been approved. (Items posted by a non-enrolled user will not be added to the RSS feed. This is due to how the RSS feeds are built to handle group memberships)

    We got a database error, a very inconsistent one we thought, but it turned out to be the pcast database table for the Summary being limited to 255 characters. Is there a reason for this? We changed that to 1024 characters, will that have any negative effects? (moodle 3.2.6 and pcast 3.2) The error message in the database: Error writing to database. Debug: Data too long for column 'summary' at row 1\nINSERT INTO mdl_pcast_episodes (name,summary,mediafile,subtitle,keywords,explicit,pcastid,timecreated,userid,course,summaryformat,timemodified,approved,topcategory,nestedcategory) VALUES(?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?)\n[array (\n
