Tweak to Automatic Playlist for Streaming Episodes
I am using the option to add only downloaded episodes to the automatic playlist, and the automatic cleanup option to restrict the playlist to the last episode(s) of each podcast. This works great! However, this does not work for podcasts that I want to set up for streaming-only. The episodes keep adding, and adding... terrible for hourly news podcasts! I'd like an option to restrict the number of episodes that appear in the automatic playlist per podcast, downloaded or not. Just remove the oldest from the playlist beyond this limit when new ones come in.
You can go into the playlist custom tab, select the category of your choice and then use the filter button to customize the list content. For example, you can use the filter by publication date to only show episodes published in the last 24 hours. Feel free to contact me if you have any question (Settings/Feedback)

I'm trying this, but I don't see the publication date on the episode filter for the podcast's specific custom settings. I don't want to set this globally for the playlist, since podcasts have different publication schedules.
