Automatic downloading of existing episodes?

New postby bigjosh on Wed Nov 26, 2008 11:05 pm

Installed and registered, then added a podcast. PodTrapper automatically downloaded first 2 episodes as expected. I listened to these first two, then deleted them. Should PodTrapper now go and download the next 2 older episodes, or will it only download newer episodes when they are created?

Also, program crashed hard when I entered the activation code. Quick battery pull and back to normal now.

I am very excited by what I see so far. Thanks so much for this!

BTW- went into one of the older episodes and did "restart download" and it started downloading. So, for me at least, right now it seems like for old episodes that "restart download" really meant "download this episode", which works great.

Just want to make sure I am understanding right and not missing something.

Thanks again from me and my wife (who is about to inherit my ipod),

Hi Josh,

I added a few places to initiate that and made it a little clearer in the newest version. Let me know if it makes more sense now...

Much clearer in new version, thanks!

Maybe a future update could make it so that if "autodownload" is enabled, podtrapper would automatically schedule a download for the next newest, non-listened to episode anytime an episode is finished or deleted such that there would always be at least "autodownlaod count" number of unlistened to episodes ready.

Thanks again!

Hi Josh,

I just wanted to let you know that the newest version (1.1.2) has a setting to download more episodes when one is deleted. Check it out and let me know if that is/isn't what you were looking for.
