@dave We published a new features page today and happily mentioned Podcasting 2.0 Go Podcasting! rss.com/features/

@nixer custom RSS feeds are supported in the mobile app under More > Add Custom RSS Feed

They’re not available on the website though. We want to add them to web someday, but it’s a lot of work and I’m not sure when we’ll get to it.

@sliekpodcast @mitch hah, wow! Never thought of just embedding the whole webpage in another site.

We should probably make a proper embeddable widget someday, since dropping the whole webpage in is a bit overkill. That's cool it's just working out of the box like that though.

For the last couple days I have been thinking that I wish I could embed one of our episodes from a 2.0 player that displays chapters on our website. Today I decided to give it a try with @podverse and it works great!

Added bonus, the Podverse theme looks great with our website layout. 💙🙌

@fiberdrive @ChadF ahh makes sense…we’re using Firebase for notifications and it’s a Google product 🙈 it’s easy for Android, and one of the only ways to do notifications on iOS.

We want something FOSS and self-hosted, but it’s more complex, will need maintenance, and will have different bugs and outages compared to Firebase. We can do it, but don’t have the bandwidth for probably a couple months.

@ChadF @fiberdrive someone reported issues with the Aurora version recently. I think they couldn’t download episodes? We don’t officially support it, but if it works for you with notifications that’s great. Please lmk if you run into any issues with it.

@fiberdrive @ChadF as much as I love F-Droid, it can be a lot of extra work compared to the Apple / Google Play ecosystem. It gets overwhelming sometimes. Hoping more people will step in to contribute to Podverse someday.

@fiberdrive @ChadF sorry, notifications are not supported on F-Droid yet. We will have to deploy a separate self-hosted FOSS notification system (UnifiedPush) to support them on F-Droid. I’m hoping other open source developers can help us do that because we don’t have experience with it, and it seems like a lot of work.

@ChadF thanks for sharing! Also fyi…scheduled live items do not show up in mobile like they do on the website (I just didn’t have time to add it yet), but live streams should show up on the podcast’s page in mobile when they’re actively live.

There was some confusion over how to turn on notifications in @podverse. All you have to do is click on the bell icon on the top of the each podcast.

@ChadF hmmm extra weird that 4.4.2 isn’t even available…I just pressed “Notify testers”, can you close TestFlight, then try again?

If that doesn’t work, I might have to wait until 4.5.1 to fix this in Beta…4.5.0 should be available from the App Store until then.

@ChadF it should be in there. Go to TestFlight > Podverse > Previous builds > 4.5.0 > 1428

I accidentally released the Beta after the public version this time, so you might not have received the correct Beta automatically.

No F-Droid release yet though. We may need help from the open source / F-Droid community to get a self-hosted UnifiedPush instance working.

Big announcement!

Livestream notifications have been added to Podverse iOS and Android 🥳

Podcasters can now broadcast live to all podcast apps by adding the Podcasting 2.0 live item tag to their RSS feed.

"New episode" notifications have also been added.

Demo: peertube.podverse.fm/w/pddEt3e

App Store: apps.apple.com/us/app/podverse

@sliekpodcast @mitch thanks for the shout outs 😄

The core Podverse team also includes @creonc and Kyle (my brother).

We support video playback and audio livestream, but not video livestream yet. The big blocker for that at the moment is I don’t know of any 24/7 video livestreams to test with!
