Are you trying to download from the diavlog pages?

Maybe try the iTunes store version for the audio files (http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/bloggingheads-tv/id97874710)? (I'll be curious to see if an Android can play nice with the iTunes store. Please let me know, if you try this. Thx.)

Good luck.

[Added] Also, maybe try the RSS feed page for Bh.tv here (http://bloggingheads.tv/itunes.php) or here (http://bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/itunes).

You can listen to Bheads on the standard Droid radio app, as I'm doing right now, by downloading the dvlog as an MP3 file.

Go to the web page of the Dvlog and you should see three download buttons:

wmv


mp4


mp3

Click MP3 and enjoy!

PS Do NOT try to go through I-tunes, which is not compatible with Droid unless you first convert to MP3, and even then you may have copyright issues.

You can also see the video version (not just audio) by clicking the WMV download button, but it takes a long time to download a typical program. I am watching Matt Yglesias on my phone right now though. Pretty cool, although quite dangerous while walking, driving or chewing gum.

Thanks bj and Wonderment,

itunes for some reason did not want to subscribe to bhtv. I ended up clicking on the actual diavlog and the only thing that worked was to download the mp4 format. I really wanted to be able to download and store several diavlogs so that I could play them back when driving through spotty coverage. I might try some of the pod apps.
