What #android app do you #podcast lover people use? I just switch from a simple feed reader to antennapod, available at #fdroid, and I am quite happy with it, but especially for searching new podcasts I'd like to know if there is something else you'd recommend.

'Morning fediverse!



pro tip: turn youtube channels into podcasts using a service such as podsync.net (someone know any floss alternative?) and watch your favourite channels in antenna pod, just like a .

@uniq hi, well youtube offers rss feed, so you don't really need any tool to make a feed out of a channel.

For example, the feed for BBC Earth is


@arteteco those are not podcast feeds, just RSS feeds containing links to youtubes website.

A podcast feed on the other hand has direct links to audio/video files. So pod-catchers can play the media content in a local madiaplayer app. eg antennapods built in video player.

I see what you mean. I have youtube links to automatically play audio in background using newpipe, I really just have to press the link button and it plays, that's why I didn't catch the big difference.

@arteteco Oh that's great, no closed services involved there.

I frequently ride public transportation/longboard thuo. Downloading videos in advance and watching/listening them while being offline grew pretty dear to me.

@uniq if you can go on and have one tap more for the "Download audio" button in newpipe you are all set :)

But I can see how having a more integrated way of proceeding can be useful, sure thing.
