I have a bunch of MP3 files that I want to treat as a podcast, so I can pause and resume without losing my spot. How do you set up folder structures and other necessary files in Windows Phone 8.1 to achieve this?


In oder to get podcasts into your podcast app you actually have to subscribe to one, either by searching our by entering a feed. You still can listen to the mp3s though the music app.

It might be easier though to try one of the audio book apps from the store - I think those offer the functionality you're looking for.

  • i want to pause and resume without losing my spot in the mp3. Simple music does not seem to support this so I hoped to create the required files on the Phone's file system. So far my efforts have failed so I was hoping someone could show me how. – ChiliYago Oct 21 '14 at 17:36
  • If you have a webserver, I believe you can create and publish your own podcast and then import it into the Podcast app like this - citeworld.com/article/2369155/mobile-byod/… – whihathac Oct 21 '14 at 23:23
