Treat fully cached podcasts as downloaded for fast resume.
My workplace has lousy data reception and if I pause a podcast (make or get phone call) it sometimes fails to resume after trying "Connecting to..." even though the podcast is fully cached! (shows blue progress line all the way) I feel the app should just resume immediately is it does with downloaded episodes.
The app player is based on the default mediaplayer framework. You will have the exact same issue with android default player and almost every other player app. The only way to prevent this is to download the episode first, which can be done automatically. There’s no way to access the content already buffured which is handled by the OS
