@Castopod Thank you for your great work! Awesome #podcast #selfhost solution that can connect to the the fediverse (and many other networks and platforms) ->

@Castopod Congratulations! Can you point me to a server running v1.0 or higher when you get a chance? I want to test something

@js @Castopod Ours is running the new version. I can create a dummy podcast for you to test against if it would help.

@js @Castopod That’s a sandbox podcast just for you John. Me reading Wikipedia entries. Lol. Hope it helps.

Man, the new Castopod is really nice. Love the baked in AP. Stellar job @benjaminbellamy and @yassinedoghri.

The rough edges of the alpha are all gone.

@Castopod whats this? are you a podcasting platform? cuz ive been dreading building and configuring icecast...

@Castopod oh neat didn't know this was a thing. I'll have to try it out

@Castopod Gratulations!

My only "trouble" is: Should I use,, etc. :mastolove:

Are you planning to provide an instance list on the castpod website in the future?

Hello @linos !
Choosing a subdomain is never an easy task and unfortunately we have no easy solution for that… 😉
We are indeed planning on providing a Castopod instance list in the very near future!

@Castopod congratulations for this newstep. I tried to install it ans still faced a few problèmes. Where can I send you my feed back ?

@Castopod I have written my feedback in the French section of your discord. Do not hesitate to come back to me if you need more informations.

@Castopod good day! Why Castpod platform is better then FunkWhale one for the podcasting?

@Юниксоид :flag_wbw:

good day! Why Castpod platform is better then FunkWhale one for the podcasting?

You just have to check it out - there are tones of features just for podcasting which only castpod has... FunkWhale is fine for auto sharing but not really for podcasting

@Castopod Hi guys. I usually use a separate server to host my audios. Will CastoPod ever allow me to link audio files instead of uploading them to the same server? I understand that this functionality is not implemented yet.

@Castopod which podcasts are using #castopod already ? I couldn't find a list anywhere.

@Castopod Ohhh.... i've searched to you (castopod on Mastodon account) just now and on enter i see "999 followers", and once i clicked on "follow" button... voilà!!! i'm the 1,000 follower!!!

It's the first time i have seen this in first person, hihihihi... 😃

Indeed, i discovered today your software and let me say that you're so so too much great!!! I'm talking with my social groups and customers (i'me web developer) to mount a castopod podcast ASAP !!! 😉


Hello, i have a question since i discovered your software project: does exist a "directory of current podcasts using castopod" ?

I feel the need to see how other people before me has been able to do with castopod.

Even it would be very interesting to have such a directory to give its URL to potential users (customers, friends, etc...).

If it doesn't exist, what do you think about to create it?

Maybe add a new section on ? with a form to let visitors submit his URL.

@sergi That is something that we are definitely working on!
We will also ad show case page on
We also asked @dave if at some point the PodcastIndex API could implement a searchByGenerator end point.
