Hi,

i am looking for an Windows Podcast Client that will use the same Sync as my android devices.
So I will ask you if you plan to work on a Windows software or you plan to open you sync API to another Desktop Clients?

regards
Thomas

I would love a native client as well.

Work is well underway on a Windows 8 Phone version of BeyondPod. Once that's up and running and stable, the next stage will be to convert it for Windows 8 Tablets. (Unlike Android and iOS, Windows Phone and Windows Tablet cannot run the same applications, but Windows 8 Tablet applications will also run on Windows 8 PCs.) So it's likely that there will be a Windows 8 desktop client - but probably not one for Windows 7 and earlier.

Running BeyondPod in BlueStacks is pretty ugly solution, but it's better than nothing :)

To answer your question. I glanced at the API for gpodder. There was a python library already written for gpodder, so I'd have to write a php library. I think using the gpodder api & services is a good direction to go in.

Hows this coming along? by when is it possible to run it on Windows? I have Windows 8.1 so, I am willing to even beta test if required.

It's getting there, but there's still a bit more work to do before it's ready for beta testing.

Thanks for the offer though - noted.

Hi there,
How bout Chrome (browser) support instead. That way you shouldnt need to port it to multiple devices/os's.

Hi, and welcome to the forum.

Unfortunately, it's not quite as simple as that, as you still need to deal with downloaded episodes, etc., which will be handled differently on different platforms.

There are other possibilities for desktop use though, which are being investigated.

One possibility is to use BeyondPod's Chrome version. If you have a Chromebook then it is a straight download from Chrome web Store.

If it is a Windows/MAC you could try using some of the “open source” runtimes like ARChon (https://github.com/vladikoff/chromeo...ster/archon.md (https://github.com/vladikoff/chromeos-apk/blob/master/archon.md))

You can then synchronise your phone and your computer using BeyondPod's EpisodeSync.

Thanks, I tried ARChon already. The warning flags in Chrome are a PITA, and it's a resource hog for the time being...

Sorry no. Not unless somebody wants to step forward to write it.
