Provide a way to play podcasts that have been manually imported as mp3 files
Outside of PA, I generate my own mp3 files that are an edited version of a radio stream. I then upload those mp3 files to my phone and want to play them via PA. There seems to be no way to play a newly uploaded file of this type if PA is started directly. If I launch a file manager (e.g., ES), I can select an mp3, select PA as the player, and it will launch PA and play the file just fine. It would be nice if this could happen from within PA.
You can play external files in the app either by opening then from a file explorer app or by using the Virtual podcast feature which allows you to select a folder so its content can be used as episodes in the app
