The goal

Support podcasts in Nightingale

The situation before

Songbird had podcasts support a while ago but was removed due to lack of support, bugs and missing features.

Solution proposed

Mozilla is working on a HTML5/JS powered podcasts client which is targeting Firefox OS and available here:

https://github.com/mozilla/high-fidelity

What to do

  • Wait for a Gecko 4+ based Nightingale
  • Do some testing to see if it works on Nightingale
  • Ship it in add-on with necessary requirement (Force CORS)
  • Allow it to be open both in normal view and right side-bar ?
  • Allow download/export of files

Tests

  • Works on desktop Firefox with Force CORS add-on installed
  • Doesn't work on Nightingale/Songbird/Firefox 3.6 (no IndexedDB support, missing JavaScript stuff)
