@martin Got transcripts in the aggregator last night. And working on funding tonight. Then I’ll expose in the api endpoints. In need a good transcription service. I usually create them through AWS in the past. But they don’t put time codes in.
@dave Just a head's up the podcast index rss feed is throwing an error in chrome. Looks like a blank line has crept into the start of the xml file.
@dave the noise in episode 7 was something else in my audio chain. Investigating.
@csb There are not enough independent podcast apps. That's why we created this free API. To reduce the up-front costs of starting an app. I don't want podcast app devs to have to depend on banner ads to make a living. It's not fair. Podcasters (collectively) make millions through the conduit of an app that has to sell for pennies, or free with ads on the app stores. The podcast app devs have always been left out of the profit loop.
@csb I see that 62.53% market share and it doesn't phase me. IE used to be 90+% of the browser market.
Things can change. But not without singular focus and collective vision.
Buzzsprout, Podcast Addict, Podfriend and Podnews all support the transcript element. Progress! http://l.curry.com/fkm
@siebe Valid. I want professors to put their lectures in a feed, so much potential (transcripts anyone?) presidential speeches, love letters, you name it. I wish there was a feed of my old radio shows.
@theDanielJLewis Gotcha. To answer your question we were using 6 spot instances on AWS. They are super cheap if you bid low. I use a startup script for them that installs PHP and then pulls the scraper script from the c&c server. It then launches and keeps running (reporting findings to the c&c) until AWS terminates the spot instances. Once the spot price hits again, a new instance spins up and starts the same process over. It’s totally hands off and worked nicely. Cost about $17/mth.
Don't forget to add your app/platform to this doc when you implement tag support:
Just do a PR and I'll pull it in.
@brderguy Not insinuating you don’t mean it of course :-)
@brderguy overcast still for time code sharing, podfriend for quick lookups and listens and currently enjoyin HyperCast. I’m a gadfly!
@brderguy only I mean it. And I actually ask specifically: “is there anything you need” :-)
