gPodder Bug Tracker – Bug 288
More human-readable file naming
Last modified: 2010-08-23 23:53:51 BST
It would be great if you could incorporate a portion of the podcast name, or episode name at the beginning of the filename.
Some applications and hardware media players I use only refer to the podcast by filename, not the ID3 tags. This makes the giant GUD filename impossible to use - I understand why this is used in Gpodder, but perhaps the first 5 digits of the podcast name could be used, with the GUID appended? It would make managing the files much easier, and save putting them through a 'tag to file renamer', as I have to do at the moment (which breaks the connection in Gpodder too).
Alternatively, storing the podcasts in a GUID directory structure, then leaving the original podcast filename intact. This way Gpodder would still be able to find the podcast (it would be the only MP3 in the GUID directory), but the filename would be human-readable.
Ad, this is really a variation on the discussion / patches being discussed in bug #57 - head over there and have a read. Many of the current patches are available in the current release and can be enabled by some of the advanced options.
