If a service which downloads all (new?) podcasts and checks their content length (if duration is unknown), and pumps it back into the index, so it can be used for duration is useful, I can create it and just have it run until eternity on my server.

@ralfy @adam Request an upgrade and we’ll start working on your idea.

@dave @adam

we could also use it for :
- report bogative
- send ratings back to the index

@ralfy That would be beautiful, but that would be a ton of bandwidth for you! There are 35 million episodes available right now!

However, you're probably already thinking to filter out any podcasts that already have the duration tag set. @dave @adam

@theDanielJLewis @dave @adam
how many episodes are released every day that dont have duration?

Perhaps I can start by trying to just process these

@ralfy 251K podcasts published at least 1 episode in the last week. So that gives you a little bit of an idea. (Source: @dave @adam

@theDanielJLewis @dave @adam

whow so to download them all, could be about 250k * average 50mb = 12.5 terabytes

yikers that is more than my server can handle i think
