i’m trying to modify the standalone Podlove Webplayer V 5.x for my own purpose.
I checked out the official Documentation and the Sandbox example from here: Link to Sandbox
Based on the file fg-70.json there are a Subtitle and a Summary of the Episode (not the podcast / aka “Show”) provided for the Episode #070.
How can I show the Subtitle and/or The summary of the episode in the podcast player?
In the array visibleComponents we see the property “subtitle” but it’s not shown anywhere.
When I tested it on localhost and also in the sandbox, I noticed that changes of “visibleComponents” have no influence on the player. Only when I remove the transscripts for example, they are removed from the list.
I don’t understand the puropse of “visibleComponents” because changes there have no effect. I only found a documentation of this property for WebPlayer V4 but not V5 (the current).
I figured out that there is a way to do what I want by using Templating.
But I would prefer not to do it because 100% of the pre-defined player is perfect for me - except the missing subtitle/summary. When I use Templating I have to figure out the whole default player HTML Template and it seems to be complicated to rebuild all by my own after a few hours trial and error. So i would like to implement the modification without templating if it’s possible.
I hope you can help me out.
