Timeout error

App version: 2.7.1 (d5f0ef244) (from Google Play)

Android version: 8.1 (Standard ROM non-root)

Device model: Samsung A5

Expected behaviour:
Add a new feed or update an existing without errors

Current behaviour:
When a new feed from www.podtube.me is added or an existing feed is updated, the timeout error is generated

First occurred: few days ago

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Go to www.podtube.me and generate a feed link for your favorite youtube channel
  2. At AntennaPod, add a new RSS podcast with the generated link
  3. Wait for the error message (or the task to be completed without error if you are lucky)

That issue is happening because AntennaPod wait too little (10 to 15 seconds) to get the feed before a timeout error is shown to the user. In other hand, Podtube assemble the feed in real-time when a feed is requested by the usesr, that implies in retrieve a lot of data from youtube server, and that frequently takes over 20 seconds.

I think the timeout at AntennaPod should be set to a higher value (at least 60 seconds), as used by other apps, or give the user the option to set the timeout the user like.
