Have "Add to playlist" remember settings

New postby ScanAmerica on Mon Feb 16, 2009 7:59 am

It would be nice if the choices in the "Add to playlist" screen, used to specify how episodes should be added to the playlist, were remembered.

Right now, if I specify I want "New and Unfinished" episodes added and select "Add Items", the next time I return to this screen to rebuild the playlist I have to select "New and Unfinished" again.

Thanks!

I agree. This would be great. Also, it would be nice to be able to sort by episode Length. I know that data isn't avaiable for all podcasts, but I try to schedule things to fit my commute, so this would be a nice addition beyond the sorting already available.

Once "Add to playlist" remembers the last settings that were used, it would be great if a "Refresh" menu item could be added to the same menu as "Add podcasts" which would empty the playlist and rebuild it using the "Add to playlist" settings. It would also be cool if this refresh could be setup to happen automatically (if the user chooses) after a new episode has been downloaded so that the playlist is *always* up to date.

FYI, this seems to be working perfectly in 1.8.0 PreRelease.

Thanks!

It seems to remember the ordering sections, but the inital 'New Only/New & Unfinished' part seems to reset each time for me? (Not tested on 1.8.4 yet to be fair)

That problem exists in 1.8.6 as well, all of the other settings are remembered but the "Add episodes" selection is not.

This one was actually by design, since I anticipated you'd only ever do it once, then let the auto-fill happen. But it probably makes sense to save it anyway, I'll add it in the next release.

I see your thinking, however random phone lockups (not PT related I might add :) ) sometimes wipeout the list, but maybe it is more persistent than it once was?

It saves at two points, exiting podtrapper and when it finishes an episode and starts playing the next. I've experimented with saving at other times, but it ends up clobbering the list in certain situations where the list isn't in a 'final' state. I'll look at making it a bit more robust, since right now it doesn't save after auto-additions.

Just reporting in to say the playlist seems pretty rock steady now.. it even survived an OS upgrade.. whihc makes the default to add new episodes only the correct choice i would say.
