We got a comment on Twitter that AntennaPod is not in the list of apps on the Blind Tech Guys website. These folks are using Buzzsprout, which offers podcasters the option to add directory-specific links to their listing, which then appears on their website:
When you are approved by a directory they will (most likely) email you directly to let you know. In that email, they will include your public listing URL. Once you get that URL then log into Buzzsprout and go to the Directories page. Then click into the directory and scroll down, you will see a field to add your listing URL manually. Paste the URL into your account there and then you will see that reflected on your Directories page and on your public page!
Now, of course, AntennaPod strictly speaking doesn’t have a ‘directory’. But if we could make the case that specific URLs open in AntennaPod, we could ask Buzzsprout and other platforms alike to include AntennaPod in the list of apps. Therefore I was wondering whether e.g. www.antennapod.org?podcast=https://feeds.buzzsprout.com/1163732.rss opens directly in AntennaPod?
If not, would it be a crazy idea to implement this? Or, maybe better, making use of the Podcast Index ID? E.g. www.antennapod.org?podcast=297254 - after which we pull the data from PI?
