Player FM Status

Just the facts ma'am about upgrades and downtime

I am about to commence an infrastructure upgrade which may cause small periods of downtime.

I’ve been working on this upgrade for the past few weeks and it’s primarily aiming to deal with the increased feeds Player FM is indexing. This became necessary especially after Reader shut down, with many people importing their OPMLs.

The upgrade should reduce the feed update lag from an average of several hours to just a few minutes. It’s based on receiving direct notifications from the feeds when they update, instead of periodically polling them. This means that even as more feeds are added, the update lag should remain just a few minutes.
