[Volunteers Wanted] Podcast Chaptering
Hi there!

I dunno if you're aware, but there is the ability add chapters to podcasts. I first noticed this in ShopTalk, and support for the thing is getting wider. If we had enough episodes with chapters in them, I'd be interested in changing thefpl.us' own interface in order to support it.

But that means having someone do the manual entry of marking those chapters. So I thought I'd ask for volunteers to see if anyone is interested.

If you have a Mac there's two options that look really good. Forecast by the Overcast team, and Chapters by this Swedish guy. Both look nice. If you felt like playing with one of them and sending me the results I would very much appreciate it.

If you don't have a Mac the options are much more shitty. The only thing I've found is something called Podreel, which costs $25, looks ugly (I genuinely don't know if it supports Windows 10) and the third question in the FAQ is "What is podcast?" If you can find something better, hooooray that would be great. If you want to try to suffer through Podreel let me know.

No matter what if you're interested, let me know. Thank you.

I am interested and I have a Mac. What are you looking for in terms of how chapters would be laid out?

I think download the episode of your choice and break it into whatever sections make sense for that episode. I'm guessing the actual breakdown of chapters will change episode to episode, but just mark up every natural break?

Used that one as example for a test, worked out really well.

The real hard part is probably going to be coming up with chapter names.

Thats the easy part. If there arent sections in the source doc then you label them stuff like "Lemon says Frenulum a lot"

I did episode 231. How do you want me to send it to you?

EDIT: I did episode 280 as well.

Yay!

Okay, so thanks to ikaribattousai, we now have 3 episodes chaptered up.
  • Episode 231 The Hedgehog
  • (Untitled Vaping Episode)
  • For A Better Slearth
I need some time to play with the design tweaks to get this working right on the website (and hopefully get some more episodes supported while I'm at it), but what I can tell you is that this is working in the podcast players that support mp3 chaptering. Here the Slearth episode in PocketCasts for Android.



So, give any of those 3 episodes a try in whatever podcast app you use and see if you can skip sections. And meantime, please do send me chapter notes for more episodes.

I don't know if I'm the only person working on this, but if there are others we might want a specific thread for coordinating which episodes we're working on so we can deconflict. Should we just do it in here or would another thread/sub-forum be better?

Gonna chapter episode 1 and every fifteen minutes will be a chapter with the title "Please stop listening to this" and "...you're still listening?!", ending with "DID APOLLO SEND YOU?"
