Sometimes feeds have different infos for the casts than the files themselves, and no length. When foo_podcatcher creates the playlists it uses the info from the feeds, but when you play a file foobar2000 gets the tags from the file. You can use the retag downloads option to help with this.
... Podcatcher has 4 options: download, archive, restore and delete podcast. All of them are enabled.However, when I right-click on a file in the Podcatcher playlist, the last two options don't appear in the Podcatcher context menu.
Speech:The download path needs to have a filename included, for example: file://S:\Media\Podcasts\%album%\%filename_ext%(I now realise that the feed preferences dialog says 'Location' rather than 'Path' - in an earlier version it was in fact a directory.)I'm concerned about files with illegal characters being created, and I'll look at this this weekend. I replace illegal characters, but perhaps there are additional rules I need to account for.I'll take your playlist feature requests into account when making changes. I like the idea of automatically archiving listened podcasts, or not listing them based on the playcount, but I hesitate about deleting files because of the "except in some cases if they are really good and want to keep them" case. There is already a preference to only show downloaded and new podcasts in playlists.I haven't been able to find any example FeedDemon OPML files online, so could you send me one in a personal message on the forum here. A single outline element should be enough.
Synthetic Soul: Deleting the casts will stop them trying to download if they aren't in the feed anymore.
Speech: Thanks for the OPML file. I haven't been able to reproduce the illegal characted bug though. Could you let me know the exact download path and feed/cast combo that produces it? Thanks.
Synthetic Soul: You will need to delete the casts too. They will be in the Orphaned Podcasts 'feed' playlist (but will need to archived before being deleted). I've changed the behaviour in the next version to not try to download archived or orphaned casts, and to allow orphaned casts to be directly deleted.
