A few requests... :)

Postby Tekzel » Wed Nov 28, 2007 3:23 pm

I originally posted this on the announcement thread for the new beta, but decided that was the wrong place for it and am moving it here.

This version is the first time I have been able to get the podcast feature to work, and so far I am DIGGING it! Currently I use DopplerRadio to manage my podcasts, which are downloaded to a specific location and then retagged (the request deals with this) and then moved to my Creative Zen which I use in my car to listen to podcasts to and fro. I have some suggestions for enhancing the podcast section, I would love to be able to use Subsonic to handle them for me as well.

* Automatic retagging, ideally with variable expansion for stuff like the artist/album (I like to keep them the same)
* The option to rewrite the track number with a "episode number" moving from 1 to ... ongoing
* The ability to set the genre to a specific value on all podcasts that are downloaded?
* User definable categories
* Per feed settings, for number of podcasts to keep, etc.
* The ability to edit feed url and such, can't find that so far.

For me, the automatic retagging is the biggie, including the track number generation, would make my life so much easier. I have no idea why, but podcast producers seem to be allergic to cleanly tagging their products.

Not necessarily podcast related:
* The ability to set the genre to an arbitrary value rather than being limited to what is in the dropdown list when editing tags. I use my own genres most of the time.

Would any or all of this be feasible? Anyway, great stuff so far!

Hi Tekzel,

Thanks for your suggestions, I hope to implement at least some of them. In particular, I like the idea of retagging the track number.
