Any other business

Extreme shortage of shows!

  • During January 2024 the number of pending shows in the queue and those in the reserve queue shrank to an extremely low level. It looked as if there would be no show to release on an upcoming day, and there was nothing waiting to be processed.

  • This is the first time this has happened in many years - perhaps more than 12 years.

  • Ken put out a message to the HPR mailing list requesting shows. He also sent personal messages to hosts asking for shows to be submitted.

  • It was very heartening to see the response to these calls, and at the time of writing (2024-02-03) there are shows for the entirety of February.

  • Thanks to everyone who stepped up to help with this emergency! However, we, the HPR Community, must not allow this to happen again.

Newpipe video player

It was only until I heard this show that I learned of using another repo in F-Droid to get the latest build of Newpipe, and in the process, discovered another F-droid app (Clipious) for playing Invidious videos. Thanks!
