episode file name format rename when downloaded
episode format rename when downloaded
Instead of downloading the file and listing it by filename, can you download it and name the file with the episode title, or date/time, etc. Other podcast receivers do this.
Next version will allow you to customize default file names using predefined patterns. A 1st beta will soon be availble. Make sure to join the Beta on the Play Store app page to test this and provide some feedback.
This will of course apply to new downloaded episodes only.
You will have to go to Settings/Download and press on 'Use Custom filenames' to change the default behavior
This problem only occurs with some podcasts. Using PodcastAddict on its own, there is no problem but, like others, I need to copy some podcasts for use elsewhete and some podcast filenames seem to bear no relation to the actual content. Surely an option for users who need to do thiscan be implemented.
I use podcast addict to download episodes and then play them via Play-Fi (which is not yet integrated, but it'd be a very nice feature to add to podcast addict) . The problem is that some podcast file names are very weird and it'd be very nice to have an option to rename the podcast after downloading to something much more meaningful such as date-podcast-title.mp3 . To check the downloaded episodes, the add can check for the original file name and if not present, look for the 'nicer' file name. That is just a couple of lines of code. I'm sure that the nice developer behind podcast addict, can add that option! Thanks a lot!
