Playing Podcasts while downloading

New postby edzzik on Tue Dec 30, 2008 8:06 pm

Hello,

Is it at all posible to play Podcasts (or other internet files) as they are being downloaded?

Thanks,
Ed

Yes and no. I'll definitely add it to the list and see what I can come up with.

It should sort of work now. (1.5.5)

I'm not sure how well the BB media player (what podtrapper uses internally) will handle playing partial files, but I couldn't think of a reason to prevent it. If there's weird behavior, though, I may have to disable it just to avoid confusion. (Or at least make it a menu option).

I tried playing a partially downloaded video podcast a while ago.

It played perfectly. Right until it got to the end of the partial file. The BB player on the storm didn't like that very much. Crash and reboot. Then again, as much as I love the Storm, crash and reboot isn't exactly uncommon. ::cough::

Hi Mike,

Yeah, I assume stuff like that will happen, which is, unfortunately, out of my control.

Hopefully it'll be a little more graceful with audio...
