I'm shipping timestamps support on Podbay later today, it uses some regex analyzers on the episode description, and looks at shared timestamps too.

I'm taking a look at the Chapters spec and am trying to add support for it in.
Fetching and parsing is no problem, but figuring out the best way to render them this way is tricky if the RSS feed doesn't return a duration as part of each episode. Can't show the positions without knowing an estimation of where to place them.
The NAS RSS doesn't contain durations. Is that by design? If so, I'm curious why, and if there are any suggested workarounds to get the duration without fetching the mp3.
Intended for all stake holders of podcasting who are interested in improving the eco system
