GuttenPodder - Add feedWhile

, but it's not just a simple clone of the original. It has added in some new tweaks such as new filters to view your podcasts and has fixed the podtrapper search that did not work in webos 2.x.x, but the most recent update to GuttenPodder allows you to add any local sound files--such as .MP3 or .WAV files--to your podcast lists. This is convenient for audiobooks or sound files that are not available as a podcast feed but can be downloaded elsewhere instead. All you have to do is put those sound files anywhere on the

and follow the directions below

  1. Open GuttenPodder v0.9.1 or higher
  2. Tap the Add feed sign on the bottom-left of the main podcast listing screen and choose "Add local media..." from the pop-up menu
  3. On the top FILTER line, you can enter in any simple search for the titles/names of the media on your device, although the search will exclude the "/ringtones" folder. If you leave the FILTER blank, it will pull in every sound file on your device
    • It is important to note that this currently performs a case sensitive search of the titles of the media, not the filename itself. We have been told that this will be enhanced in a coming update to also allow searches of the filenames and remove the case-sensitivity.
  4. Under TITLE, you can enter an optional title for the "feed". This is what will show up on the main GuttenPodder homescreen. You can also set the icon image by manually typing in the path and filename on the ICON, although a default image will appear if you leave this blank
  5. Finally, there is an OPTIONS section you can set the sort order and also determine if you want to include any podcast file downloaded by GuttenPodder or keep the default to exclude those files.
  6. Tap the "Done" button
  7. This will take you back to the main GuttenPodder home screen. If this is the first time adding a local media feed, you should get prompted to allow GuttenPodder to access your media files. Be sure to answer YES
  8. You will notice a new "feed" has been added to the bottom of your podcast listing. It may just show a blank row with a spinning circle. Don't worry about that, and instead tap on that feed to open it up. Then tap on the refresh icon. This should refresh the feed with all the local files that were added to this feed

From here, you can listen to any of those files just as you would any other podcast. You can even add the same audio file to any number of local media feeds, not just a single one. Have you added additional files to your device after you set up the feed? Just tap the refresh button again and GuttenPodder will add in those new files.  And don't worry about deleting files from the app. Although it appears as if you can delete a file, this only marks it as read within the app; no local file will be deleted by GuttenPodder.

So there you have it? You can now use GuttenPodder as a music player, audiobook reader, or just an app to organize your media.

      It is now 2020, and the WebOS browser in LG Smart TVs (which I believe is Chromium-based) is still massively out of date and doesn't work properly with a ton of websites!
      The main problem is actually very simple. The browser doesn't support EMCAScript 2015 or ES6.
      Basically, translated from nerd speak, it doesn't work properly with modern code using new features created since 2015, so any newer websites will break unless they've been written to be compatible with ancient browsers and OSes.
      This should not be the case on a TV made in the current year. It should be running an up-to-date web browser, if not for convenience, then for SECURITY reasons as well!
