My MP3 player is getting more and more choosy about what it plays.
In the past it has rejected most of The Podcast Network's MP3s, but never any of Adam Curry's Daily Source Code, until it rejected a few recently, but not all of them.
It plays all IT Conversations MP3s.
But here's the weird one and perhaps the solution to what's going on.
I listen to both RumourMill and Sportsweek from the BBC.
Until 2 weeks ago, they both played perfectly on my MP3 player.
The last 2 weeks, RumourMill plays and SportsWeek has "Format Error" when I press play.
The file shows up ok, and plays on my laptop when I use the MP3 player as a disk drive.
So what has changed on SportsWeek that hasn't changed on RumourMill over the last 2 weeks?
The bitrate and audio sample rate are the same, and the file sizes are similar.
What the hell is going on?
