Summary0004769: Podcasts: Need to add <guid> episode tag to the database
DescriptionCurrently we use episode URL or combination of {Date, title, Podcast} as episode identifier, but episode URL cannot be used for identification in some cases, e.g. http://mga.rpod.ru/rss.xml contains episodes with URL = 'xxx.mp3?a78aef9b55a6502f3c6c67b5cf52409697495f8a16bbd0aee1f528bf1cd0ac42' and the part after '?' sign is variable for the same episode each time it is updated !
Also itpc://rss.premiereradio.net/glennbeck/podcast.xml seems to generate some random key in the URL for each episode.
These issues are solved by a workaround, but there are some podcasts that have just one entry that is updated daily. So every day a new episode with a new GUID is build, but the XML File has just one entry with the same URL.
(see the item 2 on http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=30494
 )

According to Podcast specification (http://www.apple.com/itunes/store/podcaststechspecs.html)
There should be used <guid> tag as episode global unique identifier,
but be careful taht some podcasts like that: http://podcast.oneplace.com/Grace_to_You/3011135.xml
are missing the <guid> tag from episodes.
