LOVING the look and feel when opening podverse app now. Also glad for the playback speed y'all added between 1 and 1.25. The 1.12 speed seems to be a good sweet spot. Best freaking podcast app in the universe. Great job y'all

Have you tried using SD card storage with Podverse? To set it up you'd go to More > Settings > Downloads > Save on external storage card.
If you have, can you please verify if it downloads files into your SD card?
We have a major fix in the next release for SD cards on Android 10+...but I'm unsure if our Android 9 SD card feature is also broken.

@podverse @dowodenum I think the initial WebLN was first released in 2019 - so quite a while ag - And it is true, that for various reasons it had initially stalled a bit. The lightning network had to grow and become more stable and usable.
Now we are at the stage where we can build apps on lightning like the podcasting 2.0 apps. And we also see a growing interest of building lightning integrated web apps.
So things are happening, still a young but growing space.
If anyone wants to see the code for the Podverse embed player, here's the PR: https://github.com/podverse/podverse-web/pull/820/files
The new Podverse embed also has a full size player mode:
Also, I submitted v4.5.5 to F-Droid, but it usually takes a few days before new versions appear on the F-Droid Store.
Video livestreams are now supported in Podverse! 🥳
Download v4.5.5 for iOS and Android for video livestream playback.
They also work on the website *except* for iOS Safari. I'll look into that bug this weekend.
Intended for all stake holders of podcasting who are interested in improving the eco system
