Description Gerrit Visscher 2009-05-20 14:10:24 UTC
Version:           2.1-SVN (using 4.2.86 (KDE 4.2.86 (KDE 4.3 >= 20090514)), Gentoo)
Compiler:          x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-gcc
OS:                Linux (x86_64) release 2.6.29-gentoo-r1

It would be nice to see the additional info (description) from the RSS file in the lyrics applet when listening to a podcast. This way, it is easier to have a look at links etc.

I think the info applet would be much more appropriate, but yes, the description HAS to be displayed somewhere! There are podcasts that only have titles like "Episode from 01.01.2009", so you have no idea what you'll get. You'd have to listen to it to know what it's about. I think the podcast feature cannot be considered as "final" without this.

I think this feature should be easy to implement for someone familiar with the internals of amarok 2. Just extract the additional metadata from the feed and store it to an additional field in the DB, so the info applet can display it. Should be easy.

Implemented in v2.2.1-233-g9aa6124 and a few commits earlier.

Special thanks to Mathias for implementing this.
