    Liferea: How do I play Podcasts?

    It sounds so stupid, but I really have no clue. My fingers are bleeding from googling. Everybody is telling, we can hear Podcasts dircetly in Liferea, but I can't find any controls to start playback. No play-buttons, nothing. I see that it is configurable in the options, but I don't see any controls to start the playback. What am I missing?

    I found the following:

    Of course you can also manually download enclosures. To do so open the item with the enclosure and click the arrow to open the enclosure context menu.
    But when I click that arrow, I see that something opens, but the space is very small.
    It seems the interface is broken, that I can't see that context menu, it's cut off by the window.

    The screenshot is showing the bottom left corner of my maximized Liferea.
    If you look closely, you see the upper edge of the context menu.

    How do fix this? Version of Liferea is 1.8.3

    Liferea is the "native" RSS-Reader in Ubuntu 12.04

    It is capable of playing Podcasts.
    So we have all our news in one place.

    http://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/Liferea

    This bug is even documented. At Sourceforge, developer says it's fixed. 2011.
    http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func...05&atid=581684

    It's definitive NOT fixed.

    Additionally, on the website of Liferea, I find a more recent version of Liferea than in the Ubuntu Repositories, but I run into a lot of dependencies. I don't know how to solve them.

    This is really a pain. I tried different podcasts, all with the same outcome.
    How do you guys get happy with that? There has to be a solution, as it is an often used tool on Linux.

    Please....anyone?
