I don’t understand why, after all the rants in “Freakshow”, your own Player seems to not support embedded chapters in the mp3 file. Also, there seems to be no support for metadata associated with chapters such as images and links.
See here for the chapter standard: http://id3.org/id3v2-chapters-1.0
I am using Forecast (https://overcast.fm/forecast) to embed chapters and images and that seems to work in almost all iOS players including Apple Podcast app.
Specific issues I encountered with Podlove Webplayer regarding chapters:
- Chapter timestamps, associated pictures, and links are not read from the mp3 file but only from the json file
- There seems to be no way to define of display pictures associated with chapters
- There seems to be no way to define or display links associated with chapters
Is there a json example file how to embed chapter images?
I am looking for a way to make Podlove Webplayer behave like Apple Podcasts, Overcast and Pocketcast. It should display the images and links I associated with each chapter. I want the main image that is displayed in the player to change when the user changes the chapter. I want the chapter title with possible interactive link to appear under the image, like in Overcast.
Am I just doing something wrong?
All the best,
PS: It would be helpful to include a .json example file here: https://docs.podlove.org/podlove-web-player/config.html to help users who are not familiar with the format.
