|Summary||0005710: MP3 files get classified as Podcasts|
|Description||I have six tracks recently added to my library that have somehow been classified as Podcasts. i.e. the Album Name appears sub to a greyed out podcasts node with the tracks contained within.|
Note that the tracks have genre=audiobook;children , and nothing (that I can see) that would cause them to be in the Podcast node. Also, when I remove the tracks from the library and rescan them, they don't get added as podcasts.

||Not sure how could this happen, any idea Ludek?|
||There was a similar issue 0005324 which I fixed three months ago, there was bug in a SQL trigger (SVN revision 7294)|
Rusty, do you still have such a tracks in your library?
If yes, could you send me your DB to analyze?
Ludek, I've uploaded mm.db to the ftp server, but I don't think you'll need it. The files that triggered the problem were from the following site:
What I did is I downloaded them, edited them (e.g. changed the genres to Audiobook, album names, titles, etc) since most were lacking metadata, and then synced them to an iPod.
I just re-examined them and it seems that the tracks in question originally had genre=Podcast. When I renamed them to Audiobook, it seems that MM still considered the tracks to be podcasts even though they never were.
I would have expected that if a user changes the Genre from Podcast to something else, that MM would automatically remove it from the Podcast subscriptions node. A similar case could occur if a user downloaded music from a Podcast subscription and then wanted to incorporate it into his/her library.
Note: any change we make here can probably be deferred beyond 3.1.
I don't think it is a good idea.
Imagine this situation:
I subscribed the http://feeds.feedburner.com/storynory
I edited genre from 'Podcast' to 'Stories'
or I edited genre from 'Podcast' to 'Podcast stories'
then I wouldn't expect the episode to be removed from the Podcast Subscriptions.
Nevertheless the way to remove it should be to unsubscribe and/or rescan the tracks with changed genre, but this is not very intuitive way I agree.
So maybe we could add a new editable field that would indicate to which podcast the track belongs?
This has been completely re-designed in MM 4.0, and in addition:
1. Also other types have been added, see:
2. It is no longer hardcoded, but can be changed in Track Properties.
Fixed in build 1308.
