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.

Livestreams now supported on Podverse web 🎉

Podcasters: Add the "live item" tag to your RSS feed to make your livestream available to every app.


No plans to allow open sign-ups right now. We added it mainly so we can share video demos in a self-hosted, FOSS, federation-friendly, optimally-transcoded way, and get more familiar with what PeerTube can do.

Created a PeerTube instance for Podverse last night. It's amazing how easy it was. Took ~15 minutes to deploy and config using Cloudron 1-click install.

@Meremortals @brianoflondon Brian's 3Speak videos seem to play in sync in the Apple native player no problem. Does Apple just have serious playback issues with some types of video encoding?

I didn't make a video for it, but these videos work fine.

Discovered an *atrocious* bug with video playback on iOS Safari, Mac Safari, and iOS mobile apps. Has anyone seen this before?

The audio and video tracks fall out of sync for *some* videos after seeking to a time when played through the native Apple video player.

Is anyone familiar with this? Any ideas for what we can do to fix it?

This is a disaster for our video podcast playback on iOS, and it seems like it's out of our control 😖

People should only make podcasts out of love. If you do it to make money or be famous, you're going to have a bad time.

That goes not just for podcasters, but Spotify, Facebook, YouTube, Amazon, etc. They're not doing it for love, they're doing it for money, and they're having a bad time.

Podcasting — REAL podcasting, not exclusives — resists monetization. The only way to make money in podcasting is if your audience loves you.

NEW in Podverse: screen-reader accessibility for web and mobile 🥳

We've added thousands of lines of code to make Podverse as friendly as possible for people using screen-readers.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

We've received a few requests from people asking to pay for a Podverse Premium membership using Bitcoin.

Does anyone have a recommended system for accepting Bitcoin for payments?

Ideally we'd use something that isn't vendor specific/centralized, or that we could self-host.

If not, we could come up with our own process for receiving and then manually processing payments. As long as people are willing to wait ~a day that'd be fine. I'm just wondering if there are good solutions for this already

*This is just our interpretation of what "Podcasting 2.0" is. If someone asks us, we try to explain it as non-technically as we can, and focus on what it delivers to podcasters and listeners.
