allow video podcasts to be played as audio only (if desired)
what if you just want to listen to a certain video podcast. or a show has audio and video episodes but you can't watch the video? podcast addict skips the video podcasts that can't be view. i suggest you let users opt to turn video podcasts to be played as audio.
You can already do that. Just make sure you disabled video playback in foreground only in Settings/player then you can start playing video content and switch off your screen or do something else and the playback will remain on in the background.
Thanks Xavier Guillemane, but I am afraid it does not answer the question, which is how not play the video in order to save datas and battery? Actually just listening audio, not the video.
Disable video foreground is an important feature but it could be useful to be able to download audio only. When on mobile network sometimes streaming video is too slow for smooth play
In this case (disabled video playback in foreground only in Settings/player) you will consume your internet data as video or only audio?
