Fyi, I will be changing my account here. This nick is stupid and as far as I know you can't change it.
I followed some (maybe most of you) with the new account. Maybe I missed some. Anywayzzz, I'll be continuing to hang around, but 419monk won't 😁. See ya!

I think you need to take as has of the feed url also or something if you want to avoid possible collisions 😬.
Some thing like: <feedurlhash>-<guid-hash>

Show thread

@brianoflondon Were you using a hash of the guid as you id for the episodes? If so is the id supposed to be unique globally or just withing a podcast/feed? I think guids are unique only withing a feed/channel.

About updating podcasts that don't do pubsub: Would it be a stupid idea to allow an API call for apps to try and refresh a podcast in the directory? I mean like if I know that a new episode has dropped, Podfriend would have a refresh button that I could press and it would call an api in the index that would make the index reload the rss and update the index for that podcast πŸ€”.
I mean it can be frustrating if I want to share a new episode and the index is lagging. Ping @dave

@dave Dunno if you meant what quattro stagioni literally means or what @adam was blubbering about. But it's Italian and means four seasons πŸ˜„

@dave @adam good news, I got a message from Tim on the LNPay telegram group that he will be turning on inbound KeySend payments.
Wallets must be identified through custom record 696969, example: 696969=wal_jhnRR8uSQUZfPM

This is aligned with my proposal to include custom records to podcast:valueRecipient:

I'll be experimenting with this for podStation's 1% (yey, finally getting some $ 😜 )

Do you have any rough estimate when the index api could be used without the read keys / authorization?
I was thinking that if it's not too far away, I won't implement the authentication at all and just use dummy data until I can do the requests without it.
But if it's in the distant future, then I think I'll just implement it for the time being πŸ˜‡.

Playing around with the audio-element while slowly building my to be podcast player. Podcasting 2.0 with 4x speed sounds surprisingly interesting πŸ˜„ .

Yes! Queries without a key! Woohoo! I don't have to spin up a proxy server. Excellent. Thanks guys. β™₯️

Podcasting 2.0 for January 29th 2021 Episode 22: This Train is Rolling! -- Adam & Dave discuss the latest developments in Podcasting 2.0 and are joined by Ben and Alberto from for some hot namespace talk!

7-8 figures doesn't sound bad. I assume they accept satoshis πŸ˜„
1M is about 325 usd now.

How does one put fiat money in the LNPay wallet?

Just dawned on me that there's nothing stopping from app developers allowing users to stream the 1% to the developer even when listening to a podcast without the value tag πŸ€‘. Or even boosting the app itself πŸ€”
Or is there?

Podcasting 2.0 for January 22nd 2021 Episode 21: Hooray for Hollywood -- Adam & Dave discuss the week's developments at and are joined by Todd Cochrane and Mike Dell from Blubrry Podcasting for some HOT Namespace Talk!

So I've been working on a simple RSS-feed editor that would make it possible to put some Podcasting 2.0 tags in an existing feed.
At least for now this is a manual thing, you paste the feed in, do the edits and get the feed out.
This should be Namespace 1.0 compatible now, but it's not tested very thoroughly so ymmv:
(Only 1.0 so <value> missing, but it might some day be there πŸ˜…)

Without further ado, here is the Podcasting 2.0 feed editor:

@jpsmithnyc @419monk @ironhide1975 @kevinb66

This part I am not so super strong in - Plus we are building the plane while flying it, so everything is a bit rough around the edges.

I am sure @dave might be able to chime in here.

@dave Maybe it would be a good idea to write a small how-to for podcasters at some point (I can't wait for the LN Pay thing!)

Ok, it is time for experimenting, version 1.33.0 was released today with (very) experimental support for podcast:value, streaming SATs as you play your episodes.
Release notes with more information on the feature can be found at
@adam @dave @anita
PS: finally something I managed to implement before @martin πŸ˜‚

@martin One thing I'm missing from the PodFriend's player is the episode date. Especially now that I can search for people, if I find an interesting episode, it might be very interesting when the episode had been published.

LNPay was not mentioned in the Podcasting 2.0 shownotes. Might be good if it was πŸ˜…
I for sure am one that forgets that kind of details immediately after listening. Maybe there's others as well.
