Update downloaded episodes without backup
I have replaced my device and have a huge backup of audio files. However, the old device is not operational and therefore not able to create a "back up".
The App is downloading all files again in the new device even though the files are already available.
Any idea on how to show files as downloaded without actually downloading since the back up is already put in place in the correct folder (Android/data/com.bambuna.podcastaddict/files/podcast)..
The only way for the app to recognize downloaded files is to use the backup/restore feature.
There’s no way the app will be able to link the downloaded files with your subscription on your new device. You can move the downloaded files in another folder and create a virtual folder to listen to them but they won’t be linked to the podcasts.
There's no such thing as a file name in the RSS feed. What you suggest would require starting the download process of every existing episode in the RSS feed so the app can retrieve its filename and then check if a local file uses the same name.
There's also the issue of the podcasts using the same filename for every episode.
There's also the case of the episode files aren't available anymore...
I'm sorry but as explained before this isn't possible. The only way to do this is to have a full backup of the app database so it can be restored
that is quite silly I would say... What if I backed up the subscriptions and imported it onto a new phone? How hard would it be to compare the feed with the files in the folder? Please check and implement. I doubt it is such a problem. Thanks in advance
