Bug Description

I like to ear podcast when I go to the bed. A sleep timer will be great in the app.
By example: Stop podcast at 15', 30', 45', 60', 90', 120'
Thanks in advance!

Thanks for taking your time to create this bug report. Currently when the screen is off, podbird is suspended and the music playback is handed by the platform service media-hub. Therefore it is not possible to set a timer and ensure that after x minutes, the playback is paused. However I know that a timer platform service is planned for the near future (since the clock app needs it as well for the timer functionality). Once that lands in the platform, then we can implement this feature.

There is a trick we can use to implement this. We have added support for background playlists in Podbird. So say you have 5 episodes in the queue resulting in a total play time of 2 hours. If the user sets "Stop Podcast after 60 minutes", we can calculate how many episodes can be played within that time and then remove the rest from the queue. This way Podbird will technically go to sleep/stop after the set amount of time. This is ofcourse a temporary stop-gap solution.
