The new podQast player in the Forbidden Fruits variant: All that cannot be done with harbour possibilities and bleeding edge stuff - probably not working...
Other stuff than in harbour:

  • MPRIS support
  • Bluetooth keys (may not work...)

Except all multimedia apps like Talefish, gpodder (wish)...

I mean, no other person is usng it. I don't read many issues about that. It seems, that there are no bt headsets, speakers or car stereos out there, or it is less important.

mase's picture

Too bad. No bt control possible on my Xperia X. Pause when disconnecting bt is the only thing, that works.

cy8aer's picture

That is the same with the JollaC. I guess you do not have bt functionality with talefish too (it uses the same functionality - no: podqast uses the same funcitonality like talefish). This is because of a newer bt version. The lib cannot connect to newer bt apis :-(

mase's picture

The only bt controllable player is the built in mediaplayer.

I don't understand Jolla, why they prevent bt controls for 3rd party apps.

It seems, that nobody else is using bt audio and controls.

Great Work in the 1.11, the fixes greatly improved my experience and really love this!

One question is there a setting on how and when to check updates to the feeds? If not what is the freuquency set at? I noticed from time to time it checks, but was not clear on when and how frequent.

Again great work!

cy8aer's picture

It is a already created parameter which has no configuration element in preferences yet. It is set to 1 hour. The last refresh is also saved. If the last saved parameter > this 1 hour after app restart the refresh is also triggered.

I wrangle on how to use the qml timepicker element. Most apps therefor create a dialog but I already am in the dialog. Better would be to show the time in a label and clicking on it the timepicker is opened (fills up the space between the label and the next element). Again: stand by...

Or: a slider? [Update] Slider is the fastest method to get it run (in the next version)

cy8aer's picture

1.12-0ff does have a slider in preferences

Seems to be an issue with a number, if not all, auto update all rss feeds for npr.org, at least https://www.npr.org/rss/podcast.php?id=510318 i can manually update them but not with the update all feature in Library

cy8aer's picture

Several problems: https - creates on the sailfish libraries an ssl.CertificateError. http works.

But the parsing of the icon does not work (?-parameter in url) - fixed in the next version.

Nevertheless: What happens with a clean setup with the next 1.10-xx release then: https://gitlab.com/cy8aer/podqast/wikis/help-goingwrong

Thanks for the quick reply, I did not see the debugging tools, my bad. Looking forward to the next update!

Hi, just question - is it (if so, how) possible to download all the subscribed podcasts? Thanks :)

cy8aer's picture

Not now, but opml export is on my queue.

blizzz's picture

Could not reproduce on the sdk with a fresh start, unfortunately. I moved the store folder now and reimported the podqasts. Works for me again.

cy8aer's picture

Yes, this is the recovery way by now. But I am thinking of a backup mechanism to tarball by hand or automatically to not lose everything... Sorry about your data loss.

blizzz's picture

Uhm, with the last change, it seems podqast stumbles over the problematic Sternengeschichten. Does not list any podcast nor is able to complete updating.

cy8aer's picture

Now you have me: we have a situation of data loss. Remove /home/nemo/.local/share/harbour-podcast and (sorry about that) make things new. For backup purposes: make tarballs/copies of .local/share/harbour-podcast for future recoveries. And now: I wait for beats...

(Thinking on backup/recovery process...)

Here is a problematic feed where PodQast does not see any episodes: http://www.e-formel.de/files/casts/ePod.xml
More about this podcast you can find at https://www.e-formel.de/podcast.html

cy8aer's picture

Two guys made an error: the e-formel one created a wrong alternatives part in feed, the other (me) interpreted this buggy part without thinking. Feed will work in next release.

cy8aer's picture

Stand by - I am looking for it.

I must say: crazy statesituation. Takes some time to fix...

rrunner64's picture

I always choose the difficult ones... :-D
Thank you for looking into it!

blizzz's picture

K, thx for looking into it!

blizzz's picture

Thanks for the app, works quite nice! With Sternengeschichten podcast i have the issue that playing/downloading doesn't work. No problems with others.

cy8aer's picture

Probably not my fault: If you try to download a mp3 from https://feeds.feedburner.com/sternengeschichten by hand you get an error 503 temporarily unavailable. I build an error message for this situation in the next release.
