As long as I cannot get the full functionality to harbour I will publish "Forbidden Fruits" versions in OpenRepos: https://openrepos.net/content/cy8aer/podqast.

This version has rudimentary mpris support (Controls on start screen).

I have tried to do this with simple DBus but I do not know how to give functions and properties upper case names in QML DBus. And mpris defines upper case names. If there is someone who has an idea how to map qml names to upper case: please tell me how to do this.

I am asked for a roadmap. Let me show the things I have in my agenda:
  • Bug fixing...
  • Native MPRIS support with harbour tools. Bluetooth key handling
  • Archive all in inbox. (next release)
  • Set list element limit - partly in next release. This is helpful if a podcast changes internal structure and all posts are suddenly new. And it may de-stress the user...
  • Opml export. Backup methods
  • When downloading while playing: swap to file it downloaded
  • Better download handling: Download later if it fails
  • Move data to sd card
  • Warning if streamed when on mobile
  • Correct cover behaviour on startup
  • Alter playing speed
  • Possibilities to search in Inbox, History, and Favorites
  • Download favorites
  • Filter chaptermarks - do only play the chapters you want
  • Download limit: do not download when more than xMB are already stored
  • Sleep timer if we do not use slumber
  • Settable refresh time
  • Let already listened posts in the playlist (Pritlove wish)
  • Documentation (sic!): https://gitlab.com/cy8aer/podqast/wikis/home will be the root of the docs.

Update:
  • Better podcast subscribe page and subscribe handling
  • Switch to alternative codec if supported by podcast
I cannot say: hey feature x will come next monday. First of all: I want to have a good podcast player for myself. Some features are not as important than for others. Some already made merge requests for other languages. Thanks for that. As other projects say: It will be ready when it is ready...

I note that podQast does not handle network drops well. In the past few days, I have lost reception twice while the app was doing something - downloading an episode in one case, adding a podcast in another - and in both cases even after the network came back I was unable to do anything that required a connection until I closed and reopened the app.

Maybe it is me coming from podcatcher, but I am not seeing the subscriptions I imported as automatically being downloaded, nor do I see a way to trigger that, the subscriptions show only the ones from the say I added them but not any new ones after they have been published. How do I trigger it to check and download new ones? I like the play feature where it keeps the time that it was played at and I can listen to another podcast in between and come back to an old one. Great work! Looking forward to the updated.
