Trouble with Now Playing

I'm having trouble with two podcasts on the Now Playing pane

the first one is TWIT's Tech News Today that show up this way:

the other one is NoAgenda, in which the image of the description is too big, Doggcatcher should resize the image to fit the screen (zooming out the image, not the text?) instead of keeping it at full size:

thanks in advance

What's happening there is

What's happening there is that DoggCatcher is displaying the web page that the publisher provides as the 'show notes'.

For the first issue, that's a bug in the android web browser that causes the text to be overlayed like that on top of itself. I've been able to work around it on some devices, but on others (you have an s2 right?) it still happens sometimes.

The second issue is that the publisher is providing a large image in the show notes. I will probably end up adding a preference to be able to disable the display of images in the notes.

Thanks for posting.

adjust to width?

So for the first issue it's my Galaxy W acting up, no biggie.

For the second there MUST be a line of code you could add to make the images "fit width", other apps do it, like gReader:

alternatively you could add zoom control to the "webpage" that is the shownotes

Yup, either ones of those

Yup, either ones of those would work. I think I'll try the fit width first.

I created an issue for this - http://mantis.snoggdoggler.com/view.php?id=1366

Thanks for the feedback.
