Streaming podcasts without having to download them
« on: August 29, 2021, 09:39:44 AM »
It would be great to be able to stream podcast episodes from your list of subscribed podcasts without having to download the episode.

Additionally, it would be great if this streaming feature were compatible with your custom playlists. In other words, you go to your list of podcasts you're subscribed to, you select episode x, you right click -> send to -> your custom "podcasts" playlist and then you can also stream the podcast from that custom playlist, again without having to download.

This is so you can create a playlist of individual episodes of different podcasts.

That does actually work but only for http:// streams & not https:// streams (as a lot of podcasts have gone towards). Until I replace the Winamp provided plug-in responsible for doing most of the streaming (in_mp3) then these issues are going to persist as it's down to that plug-in not being able to correctly cope with https:// streams - the rest of the player is otherwise fine with them & will already do as you want for custom playlists (it's the actual playback that's the problem).

Ah, I see. Thanks for the explanation. Well, here's my vote for putting that issue high on the priority list.
