Can you show episode length?

Other podcast players such as Castbox.fm can show episode length of the above episodes.

Can you, too?

Hi :wave:

The reason why it’s not displayed is that we fetch this info from the feed specifically if the feed has itunes:duration. If it’s not present on the feed then it will be displayed with a - under the play button and the only way to show it would be to download every episode, which would waste bandwidth.

On the app, you still can view it if you download the episode. I suggest contacting the publisher to add feed durations as it will help with all apps.

So Castbox is downloading the episode to get this info?

Possibly. Sorry I’m unsure how their system works.
