"Keep last x episodes" type option

New postby ScanAmerica on Mon Mar 16, 2009 7:21 am

I subscribe to a few podcasts which I listen to only after I've caught up listening to my regular podcasts. I would like to be able to tell PodTrapper to always have the last three or so episodes from a podcast downloaded. When a new episode is released, PodTrapper would automatically download the new episode and delete the oldest episode in the podcast so that the "Unfinished number to keep" setting is still obeyed.

Thanks!

Hi ScanAmerica,

Isn't this how it works now? What behavior are you seeing?

Oops, I had "Max to auto-download" set to 0 for the podcast I was looking at, it was doing exactly what I wanted for that podcast, downloading only the XML feed without downloading any new episodes. I checked another podcast and verified that when a new episode was published today that it downloaded the new one and deleted the oldest one that had been downloaded.

Sorry about that.
