Overview

A free/libre and open-source (FLOSS) podcast aggregator for Chrome

podStation is a simple RSS podcast aggregator (or should I say a podcatcher?). Just add your feeds in the main page or use the search tool and be happy. Features: * Global media control support * Fully functional audio player, it plays in background and offers control over the playback rate (speed), both faster and slower. * Continuous play, go directly to the next episode when the current one ends. * Playlist * Podcast search (using Digital Podcast, iTunes and Podcastindex.org) * Import your feeds from OPML files * Detects feeds in pages you visit (the icon will change when a feed is found) * Synchronize your data using your google account and use it in any Chrome instance, like at home and work (it syncs feed list, episode progress, player options and playlist) * Integration with the Screen Shader extension (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/screen-shader/fmlboobidmkelggdainpknloccojpppi) Note on permissions: * "Read and modify all your data on all websites you visit" - That is necessary for us to download the RSS feeds and detect feeds in websites. We do not read YOUR data from any web site, nor do we modify it. This is a work in progress, if you find issues or have feature requests, please let us know through the About page of the extension or the report bug function. iTunes is a trademark of Apple Inc., registered in the U.S. and other countries.

I tried a ton of podcasting apps and extensions before settling on this one. It has a simple and intuitive interface that does all the basics that I need it to do. I can easily subscribe to podcasts and it notifies me when there are new episodes available. It auto-plays the next episode in the list, which is convenient while I'm working to just keep things rolling along in the background. If you're looking for an easy-to-use podcasting extension with a good feature set I would highly recomm... Show more

Keeping in mind the app is a work in progress and the author keeps asking people how to make it better; When I make a playlist the list won't start automatically and when I manually start my playlist the podcasts won't automatically advance to the next podcast(s). When I review the "Latest Episodes" list episodes I've already listened to aren't indicated or even removed entirely and there is no way for me to manually indicate which episodes I have listened to or remove them from the Episodes ...

Hello Steven, I don't have plans to automatically start playing a podcast when it is added to the playlist, but there is an option in the player called "continue playing". When you use that, the next podcast will play when the current one ends. You can choose between playing the next episode from the playlist, from the last episodes or from the same episode. As for the option for marking episodes as listened and hiding them, this blog post explains why this option is not available on podStation: https://podstation.blogspot.com/2017/11/why-cant-i-mark-episodes-as-listened-on.html It does not mean it is impossible that I will ever implement it, but I is a difficult one.

Have just received the notification about possible disruption to the PodStation service. Please (!) continue your work to revive it if this happens, PodStation has been the best podcast 'app' I've tried and come across. Best wishes.
