Desktop client with cloud-synced playtime.

I know it's a rather high demand, but I'd love some way to be able to have the playtimes of the podcasts synced to a PC podcasting client, so that I could listen to music on my Android phone, then pick right up where I was on my PC, and then go back to my Android phone as desired.

PC integration

That could work but it would require two things, only one of which I have control over.

1 - DC would need to store the current position in some shared location. I could see google reader being used for this.

2 - You would need a pc podcatcher that could share the play position in the shared location.

If you are aware of any PC podcatchers that do this, let me know.

Google Reader

Integration with Google Reader (which I use for PC podcatching) would be great!

Use your PC's line in port

If you're using a desktop PC, you almost certainly have a line in jack. Just connect your phone to the line in jack, and play the podcasts with DoggCatcher from your phone. Then you'll hear the sound on your PC speakers, and you can control the volume with your PC. (Just make sure you unmute line in -- Windows mutes it by default)

I've found PC-based podcatching to be so poor that I've abandoned it altogether in favour of DoggCatcher.

Thanks FunkTrooper. Would the line-in jack be in my sound card? I'll look :)

Line in location

Well, most modern-ish PCs don't have sound cards. It's probably on the motherboard. It'll be next to the line out port for your speakers. Line in is usually light blue in colour; line out is usually green.

Don't put it in the pink microphone socket. The quality would be terrible if you did.
