Podcast App Not playing podcasts

Hi there, having used the default Podcast app happily for a while (albeit via the Music app - why there isn't a direct icon is one of life's great mysteries) it has suddenly started giving me a "player is disabled or not installed" error and refusing to play any podcasts. I can go to file commander and find the podcast files. I can see that they are mp3 files and I can even open them via file commander and play them in the music app but when I try to do this via the podcast app I get the error. It's like the podcast has deregistered the music app as its player.
Any ideas on how I can get it working again?

Re: Podcast App Not playing podcasts

Hi there, multiple software updates later and this is still not working.


Trying to play podcasts through the default Podcast app (acessed via the Music app) is throwing up an error "player is disabled or not installed".


Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks very much,
