So people doing the whole podcasting 2.0 spec... are you creating the entry for every episode manually? I think someone needs to make a simple howto on howto have a one page site with an RSS feed and setup a place to store the files... like dead to rites simple step by step for dense geezers like me...lol
Sovereign Page can also take the RSS feed and output a website from it.
@StevenB @dave @nixer those don’t link to the podcast’s show page, just the home page, right? It’s be nice to add something like <rawvoice:subscribe> tag to the podcast namespace so you can populate those values from the feed.
@StevenB @dave @nixer I was just thinking a tag to include all your subscribe links, but yeah, it’d be great if every site had a .well-known route to POST a feed URL/episode-GUID and be redirected to the right destination.
Until then, I just maintain this list: https://github.com/nathangathright/podcast-platform-links
@StevenB @nathan @nixer When you look at all of the different subscription URL schemes being used, is there a baseline set of parameters they all seem to share? I would love to develop a generic universal subscription URL scheme and then petition Apple hard to support it with a default podcast player setting in iOS.
It think the most universal would be using the feedUrl for podcast and the enclosureUrl for episode. I don't like it, because everything has to be url encoded, and it looks ugly, but a podcaster can use it without needing to query any particular index to get an id or guid unique to that index
That's been tried before and got nowhere,
but since then Apple’s started allowing people to select a default browser and mail app 🤷🏻♂️
@dave @StevenB @nixer here’s some discussion from last time we tried this: https://www.reddit.com/r/podcasts/comments/7wfgxp/make_subscribing_to_podcasts_easier_with_podto/
I think a better approach would be to write a JS polyfill, so we can start using “podcast://“ links today without OS support. Then later, Apple can adopt it and we deprecate the polyfill.
