Hey there, I found your post on my way to ask about video apps to subscribe to Podcasts. All the VLC on the desktop can be used to subscribe to a podcast it doesn’t appear that you can do that in the iOS version. I find TWiT’s web interface unsatisfying when watch a video on my iPad. Want gesture- based controls… Want to be able to speed up video… Etc. Of course there’s YouTube but that has its own problems.
I’ve been “making due” with PocketCasts for playing video, but again, I’m looking for something better. Frankly, YouTube has a better ui on the iPad.
I don’t think TWiT ever had an official app, though there were several as you mentioned. I had one on my Apple TV at one point. I think they ended up in the dustbin of history thanks to the march of iOS and the need for updates. It may have something to do with changes in TWiT’s video hosting as well. Don’t know.
Hopefully someone can address our issues together.
