|Summary||0011371: Change default Podcast settings to not delete any episodes|
|Description||Currently the default Podcasts settings are set to delete old episodes. This can lead to unexpected loss for users from which recovery may not be possible.|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Fixed in build||1665|
||Changed the default in build 1665.|
Only thing I would also add as Default is "On update download" = No episodes that way podcast will be subscribed but no bandwidth and not needed downloads would occur.
May be, but I am afraid that it could have a negative effect for novice users that will end up with manual downloading of each episode. My understanding is that if anyone subscribe a podcast, then he wants also its episodes to be auto-downloaded.
What do you think, Rusty?
||I'd go with leaving auto-downloading enabled as well. I'd expect that most will expect to have episodes downloaded when subscribing to a feed. It's likely very few users would want to subscribe without downloading episodes.|
I'd leave it enabled as well. I think that the most glaring problem revealed by this user is the fact that users can't see the default Podcast rules--and so I'd suggest that we modify the dialog to show them (in cases where they're enabled).
I've documented this at 0011409 , but not as an urgent feature.
