Significant changes like that would mean I'd have to rework my prioritization structure...
Still it's fun to play with ideas for other approaches. It would be really cool if each user could customize a prioritization algorithm that could use variables like Priority, Age, Duration, Random (would require recalculation at least whenever the playlist changed, and explanation of the range of values), Frequency (how often new podcasts are released), etc., but it would probably take a lot of work to build a parser to interpret and implement something like that.
If such a powerful feature were added, though, I think I'd start playing with it somewhere around:
Priority * Random * 1/Duration/Hours + Priority * Age/Frequency
But then I'm starting to want conditionals and switches and an API to reference podcast-specific settings, because I have some at to download oldest first (some audiobooks, history podcasts, etc.) and others newest (news podcasts)... It would be wonderful but would probably still never be quite flexible enough to satisfy everyone.
EDIT: a 1st beta will be available by the end of the day.
FYI the Custom playlists will soon be improved.
Filters will be available so the selected category can only show episodes based on their download status, played status, stared status, publication date, …
I get it that some of you want multiple playlists were episodes can be manually added, but there’s no plan to implement this for now.
However, according to the feedback I got by email, it looks like those filters will solve limitations of the current solution for most users.
Feel free to send me some feedback by email if you have ideas for other filters that can be implemented (Settings/Feedback/Email)
