@dave & @adam Thank you very much for the kind words during the Podcast!

A new PWA. Yikes! I have to up my game, and I like that feature. That was exactly what you talked about early on Adam. - I'm still going to do that at one point. Right now I feel like I just had to focus a bit on core functionality instead of shiny new things - but I'll get back to those soon!

@dave Haha, you're stealing my rich-content chapter thunder in the podcasting 2.0 podcast! (which I love. Let's make it happen!)

@jamescridland @martin @adam @Castopod
How the query string should be named to specify the origin/app/service when there is no meaningful useragent?

I feel like I probably have to start proxying podcast audio files through my own webserver (unfortunately) because of cors issues (if I want to do interesting things like skipping silence, etc.)

Now I'm a bit hesitant to do that, and I guess might give up on the idea and let it be a PWA/Native only thing, because I have the assumption that it will be very resource heavy.

Anyone have any better ideas (or knowledge about performance) for doing this kind of thing?

Just a comment, I think "overflow-y: auto;" is much better than "overflow-y: scroll" on the elements in "The latest..."

Please don't hate me, but I've added a proposal for an attribution querystring for audio over here: github.com/Podcastindex-org/po

It's probably the wrong place. But I'd love to get some feedback and suggestions for where to put this.

Particularly, one for @martin

@dave & @mikek999 I know you probably hate questions about it (since you're not replying :D ), but it would just be great to hear anything at all about the image service.

I am not trying to be annoying here, but the mixed-content is creating real trouble.

I also fully appreciate that you are both busy, so even a "it's probably 3-4 weeks (or months) away" or a "We dropped all plans for it" would be super nice, just so I can know how to move ahead.

@siebe I just updated Podfriend, and now that I also installed Firefox I can see that I have the very same problem as you. Chrome updates the moment I close the pwa, firefox is being very stubborn.

But at least I can recreate the problem, so now I can work on it!

@dave is there a reason why the Podcasting 2.0 image is not completely square?

Also, did that image service ever happen? I saw you talked to someone about it, but I don't know if it is working or if it was a dud?

Thank you guys for the support, feedback and inspiration! @siebe @martin @dave @adam and the rest of the awesome podcastindex crew


Also @dave Is it correct that pretty much only the Podcasting 2.0 podcast is returning categories right now?

I'm thinking it might be super awesome if we mapped the itunes categories to the podcastindex categories?

New Podfriend version out!

Now with audio speed, so you can speed up (or slow down and savor) @dave each week!

(Also added support for video podcasts, but that kinda only works on desktop for now)

@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.

@adam @dave I just want to quickly say how amazing I find the podcast. I've been absent for a few days, because busy. But a few hours ago I listened to the podcast in my car, screaming that I want more talk about namespaces and JSON.
It is weird to hear such a great production about something so familiar and I think it provides a great source of energy for the podcastindex project. I'm sure it is a great way to keep the momentum going. GJ!

@dave @hypercatcher Phew, it's a tough problem to tackle.... I did a lot of thinking and wrote it down here: github.com/Podcastindex-org/po

But damn, it's hard. I am in love with
the idea of rich content, but I am unsure if chapters are the right place. But if it is not defined in chapters, then I probably don't think it would ever be done.

@dave (and just in case it seems like random ramblings. I am talking about the <podcast:person> element here)
