I am using Android 2.3.6 (Gingerbread) and AntennaPod Version

When I am trying to access gpodder.net, either to login or search podcasts, I get the following error message:

An error occured:javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: org.bouncycastle.jce.exception.ExtCertPathValidatorException: Could not validate certificate signature.

I tried to clear the cache, the data, and ultimately uninstall and reinstall the app from the Play Store, but the problem persists.

Any hints about what I can do here?

  • Your best bet is probably to contact the developer. It looks like a bug in the app, perhaps because you're using an old version of Android (but perhaps not). It's unlikely that there is anything we can do to help you. – eldarerathis Dec 1 '14 at 2:36

There is nothing you can do, except making your device not use ssl. Either there's a problem with the website, or a hacker is modifying your connection to the website on-the-fly but has problems.

  • Thanks. I guess it's a problem with the website, another podcast application trying to connect to the same server gives the same mistake. – geo909 Dec 1 '14 at 13:08
