Getting iOS Overcast app to work with Paracast+

Paranormal Novice
Hi Everyone,

I got Overcast to (FINALLY) accept a URL for Paracast Plus (using authentication) on my iPhone. I wanted to share it with you in the event that it can help other members. The format is:

https://username:password@www.theparacast.com/feed/plus.php/

e.g.:

https://greengiant:abc123@www.theparacast.com/feed/plus.php/

(remember to include the trailing "/" char)

I advocate using SSL so the credentials aren't passed in the clear.

I can see the episodes as well as the "After the Paracast" episodes, so I know the feed is working. Further, I'm able to download any and all episode files.

I'm using an iPhone 7+, Overcast v 3.1.6 and iOS v 10.3.2
