Is this something along the lines of a customised per-user RSS feed
that includes new tracks from people you follow and groups you're in?
Anyway, the current options for adding podcast feeds in rhythmbox are
pretty limited. The user has to either click on a feed URL and tell
their browser to pass it to rhythmbox, drag and drop a link to the
feed into rhythmbox, or copy the feed URL and paste it into a simple
dialog. I'm definitely interested in improving this, but I don't have
any specific ideas yet.
If SoundCloud podcasts require authentication, that would also be a
bit of a problem. We don't currently support that, but that's just
because no one has implemented it yet. It wouldn't be difficult to add
HTTP basic authentication, but anything more complicated than that
might be tricky.
