I’ve just discovered AntennaPod, sand I think it’s fantastic. For someone who has heavily invested in Chromecast, it is encouraging news that the functionality is being re-added.
Apologies if these suggestions have already been thought about:
We could use the default casting app and the podcast episode URL to get “quick and dirty” casting functionality. Also if the path to downloaded episodes is exposed, there are numerous third party apps that specialize in casting local content.
This would be enough to satisfy me until the fully-fledged casting app is ready.
Do you think a stop-gap solution like this is worth it?
Edit: I wanted to add that I found the “share” menu item on each episode, and I feel like this is so close to working, but it just falls short. Sharing the link also includes the episode title before the URL, so it won’t play when you share it to another app, and I’m not sure exactly what the share file option does; I’ve only got it to work for copying the file to another location…it won’t play the media in VLC or something similar.
