Ubuntu – How to add BBC podcasts to Rhythmbox


I copied link address from RSS feed here http://www.bbc.co.uk/podcasts/series/comedy. Then clicked ADD button in Rhythmbox podcast and added http://downloads.bbc.co.uk/podcasts/radio4/comedy/rss.xml

It gave the error that "The feed does not contain any downloadable items".

How to fix this problem?

It looks like you're adding the wrong URL. Here is what I did.

Opened Rhythmbox, clicked on Podcasts, and then right click choose New Podcast Feed, as shown in the image below.

Once you get the screen shown below, add the URL (http://www.bbc.co.uk/podcasts/series/comedy), and press Search. That will get you all the feeds, and then just choose the one you want.
