I love this plugin. But is there any way to rewind or fast forward the audio podcasts? Thanks.

I'm afraid not. The Roku SDK doesn't provide a method for seeking in MP3s for some reason. It's been requested several times, but no work on whether they'll add it or not.

Great to have, but how come i can only access one of the stanford online courses (iphone programming)?

Why can't I see all the available podcasts from stanford, etc when I search?

Thanks

The channel uses the iTunes directory for serving the podcasts, so anything available in iTunes should be available in the channel. It may be that the Stanford podcasts are listed iTunes University instead of the podcast directory, which aren't currently exposed in the channel.

Yes, seems like all of the good stuff in ITunes is under .../us/course/ or .../us/itunes-u/ instead of .../us/podcast/.

And "ITunes U" is actually a separate "media type" that can be used for filtering.

Any chance that all of the ITunes U content will be available on this ITunes private channel any time soon? :)

Thanks,

Luis

"soon" is a relative term.. :) I'll try to find some time this weekend to look into it, but no promises.

I can pull up this RSS feed (below) on iTunes, and it is free. But when I search for it using your app, there are no results. I've tried NTCSL, New Thought Center for Spiritual Living, newthoughtcsl, etc. Is there a better way to search or is this a glitch?

From the "Get info" window in iTunes.....

That link doesn't work for me, and I'm not finding any NTCSL podcasts in iTunes when I search. What's the exact text you used to search in iTunes to find it? Is it possible that you added it directly to your local iTunes from their website instead of finding it in the iTunes directory?
