  1. Avoid starvation

    I use priority sorting because I'm more interested in some podcasts. But some podcasts with lower priority are never played.

    It would be useful to have a system to increase an episode priority after n days from the download date.

    Something like this https://podcastaddict.uservoice.com/forums/211997-general/suggestions/17962558-priority-queueing-based-on-queue-score or also a sorting boolean variable. Thanks! Merry Christmas!

    Hey, I implemented a similar feature in the latest Beta of the app as a test.
    Can you please join the Beta on the app Play Store page and then download the latest update
    Then please go into Settings/Playlist and enable ‘Smart priority sorting’
    Please let me know how this works for you so I can know if this makes sense to have this in the next version of the app

    FYI this takes into account priority and episode release date

    Thanks

  2. Priority queueing based on queue score

    Priority queueing based on queue score

    I suggest an interesting variant of priority queuing,
    based on both the priority and age simulataneously,
    similar to one used in some P2P software with request queue management.

    Podcast channels would be assigned priorities as until now.

    But the queue position would NOT be like
    sorted by priority, than by release_age.

    It would be sorted by queuescore = prioritymultiplier * releaseage
    where priority
    multiplier = 2^(priority -1)

    So 8(exactly) days old episode with priority 1 would have the same queue score and as
    4(exactly) days old episode with priority 2, or …
