@dave Curious about an implementation detail on <podcast:chapters>.

When, and how often, is a client app expected to download the chapter file?

If I pull it only at episode-download time, then any future edits aren't included. If I pull it only at playback (which I'd also need to proxy for privacy), chapters don't show up if offline or if there's a server error.

Should I pull it at both times? Or am I overengineering this?

Suppose I wanted to tell you about 559,383 iTunes IDs that you don't have.

What's the best way to do that? Just make 559,383 API requests to the /add/byitunesid endpoint over enough time not to get rate-limited?
