I like the app but where’s the video feature?

I love this app so much but i’m wondering how the video playback feature works Update hi i tried the queue video playback feature but it did nothing do i have to have my own podcast or a podcast from the app?

Developer Response ,

Hey, thank you so much – glad you like it.

If you play an episode from your Queue or from a podcast that contains video, Podest uses a video player for playback.

Some podcasts offer special feeds with video content.

This... does not have even the most basic features

No Rewind, no Fast Forward, no speed control, nothing... it is absolutely useless. I thought buying a year subscription would unlock features... There are no features. Unbelievable.
The one good thing about this app – no trackers.
Also, nice interface. But without the most basic features it is a no go for me.

Developer Response ,

Please check again. Podest should restore your subscription automatically.
