@dave I went to their website and just saw that they are part of Spotify... Didn't know that, but that answer my question.
After messing up the audio files delivered by Anchor this must be a new way for Spotify to mess up with the podcast ecosystem...

@dave Hey do you know if by any chance Megaphone is using Podping? For the past few days it looks like they are publishing the new episode in the RSS feed while the file hasn't been fully uploaded yet... As a result users who get push update either via websub or podping are getting truncated episodes

I'm not sure to understand the purpose of the fast follow urls / QR codes. I thought this would be a unique URL that would work on every app that implements this, but that doesn't seem to be the case at all.
What's the point of those urls compared to existing subcription urls / eep links / QR codes?

Next version of Podcast Addict will support the Alternate Enclosure tag. A first beta should be available by tomorrow


@dave it looks like Apple episode search API may be down right now. I didn't find an endpoint to search for episodes by keywords on the github. Has this been implemented?

@dave Do you know who is in charge of this page: podcastindex.org/apps by any chance? I would like to update the information on Podcast Addict. Thanks

Also I found some artwork urls without any scheme / domain like: 318059_p03xq5qw.jpg
Am I supposed to prefix those URLs with something like: podcastimages.com ?

@dave Hey, is there a way to get a list of RSS feeds supporting the person tag at the episode level? I failed to find a single one for now

If you want to test 'Search by person', it's now implemented and available in Podcast Addict latest Beta.

@dave is there a limit to the number of returned results? I'm passing this argument '&max=100' but keep getting up to 60 results for some reasons no matter what I search for

Google finally reviewed the last version of Podcast Addict. It has been now fully released.
The app now supports Podcast Index tags for funding and chapters. The app handles the Chapter TOC flag as well

Sorry for asking this, but I'm not sure to understand the purpose of the locked tag. At first I thought it was to prevent platforms from indexing a feed, like <iTunes:block> tag, but that's clearly not the case. Is this tag useful in a podcast app? How is this tag supposed to prevent piracy when anyone can duplicate the feed content and remove this tag from it before publishing it to Anchor?
Sorry if all those questions have already been answered...

Podcast Addict next Beta will support Chapters, Locked and Funding tags.
I'm just waiting for Google approval...
Regarding the ID tag is it possible to add Podcast Addict to the ID list?

I understand adding extra features such as transcript, social, person, ... or even chapters but when something is already well supported I'm not sure adding another way of doing the same thing will help. Just my 2 cents on the funding tag

Did anyone take a look at Podlove work? They worked on some specs a while ago and it might be worth looking at them (especially regarding the chapters) as a lot of apps / services are already supporting them: podlove.org/specifications/
